Welcome to my first official community news article. I am so excited to be permanently in the driving seat. I have had contact with Tanya during the break and, to date, she is enjoying her retirement from the principal’s role. I am very pleased that she will continue working with us as the performing arts
This week some of the older students will have the unique experience of recording their voices for the soundtrack to this year’s performance. Some of our ex-parents came to put down the violin tracks, plus drums and guitars.
Time is of the essence as we move through November and to the end of the year so I thought I’d put a few dates into this note to clarify what’s happening this month and next.
We’re getting closer to everyone coming back to school, which will be happening after our mid-term break, on Wednesday 3rd November NOT the Friday. What a great day that’ll be!
Today we welcomed all our preps back to school, in some ways it felt like the start of the year again, but not in others, because they all bravely marched in, eager to get on with it!
Welcome to term 4 everyone. As the term progresses we will learn what options are open to us as regards events, practices etc.
(To the tune of “And So This Is Xmas”)
And so this is the last week.
And what have we done?
Three terms nearly over
And a 4th not yet begun…
It’s now the count down to the end of term 3. A little walk around the school this morning showed me just how well the children have settled into the concept of remote learning at school.
Our schools are so empty these days, but we’re lucky at Village School because when the children aren’t here, the chickens move in to take their place. We’re also constantly trying out new ways to connect with the children and ensure they learn something whether at home or at school, but it isn’t easy.
Congratulations to Emily Marker and Rhiannon Kelly; bikes and skateboards are the thing during breaks and lunches at lockdown; and training our new chickens to come when called!
