Principal's report...

Welcome back to Term 2

Congratulations to Mr Mossley and the Marching Band who performed admirably at the town ANZAC March. A huge thank you to all students and staff who attended the Dawn Service and Town March. I was very proud of the school.

Assistant Regional Director visit

Mr David Morris attended our school ANZAC ceremony and then reviewed school progress associated with our Improvement Agenda and student achievements. David conducted the school’s 2010 Teaching and Learning Audit and was pleasantly surprised with the overall change in the face of the school to being a welcoming place to learn in. The most positive feedback was that we are a Tier 2 school on a 3 up to 1 continuum. Well done to our Leadership Team and teachers who continually work through improvement strategies.

2014 Teaching and Learning/Discipline Audit

On Wednesday and Thursday we hosted principals from Oakey and Ingham as State Auditors. While the final report won’t be in for 10 days, the verbal feedback has been very encouraging with affirmation of our quality teaching team.

Junior secondary peer review

Next Friday we will host a team of principals who will assess our preparedness for the Year 7 transition to secondary next year. To date, we have had our rooms refurbished and furnished, developed a timetable and home rooms that minimise the amount of movement students will have in terms of classrooms.  An exciting phase in education is about to come to fruition. We are expecting 120 Year 7s next year.

Welcome

Miss Halfpenny will commence on 19 May as a replacement for Mrs McDonald who left us at the end of last term. Mr Herden has joined us as a replacement for Mrs Komodzinska who is on maternity leave.

Attendance

This is a 10 week Term ending on 27 June. 

Please remember Good Attendance = Good Results = Good Job Opportunities. 

The school has an expectation of 95% and students who achieve this goal will participate in an end of term reward.

Thank you

The P&C are holding a Mother’s Day Raffle.
