Walk around this week
I love getting into classrooms throughout the week. I enjoy seeing students (and teachers) share with me their successes and new found interests. I focused this week on making sure all students’ book work is of a high standard. It is important for all students to feel a sense of pride around the work they produce. The book work was exceptional.
School Council Nominations
It is that time again when we are calling for school council members. There are 4 parent positions available. If I receive more than 4 nominations for parents then I need to call a ballot. In that case I will communicate this with you all and how you can cast your vote. In the meantime, if you would like to either nominate yourself or nominate someone else please come into the office and collect a nomination form.
We usually have 2 school council meetings per term on Wednesday evenings starting at 6.00pm.
School councils have three main responsibilities:
- Finance: overseeing the development of the school’s annual budget and ensuring proper records are kept of the school’s financial operation
- Strategic planning: participating in the development and monitoring of the school strategic plan
- Policy development and review: developing, reviewing and updating policies that reflect our school values and support the school’s broad direction outlined in its strategic plan.
School Council members are also on one sub-committee held on the same evening as School Council.
Please take time to remind yourself of the school’s collection statement, found on our website http://www.langwarrinps.vic.edu.au
We are looking for volunteers to assist with our breakfast club on a Tuesday and Thursday morning. Our kids (and Mr Hickey) love grabbing a bit of toast on their way to the classroom and it helps to start the day off with a full tummy. If you can spare half an hour to an hour please contact:
Mrs Hansted (Miss Fairweather) at Hansted.firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your details at the office.
