Head of Primary Message Week 18

Opportunities for student leadership are essential as we shape values and build futures. This week, students from Year 3 to Year 6 have been invited to apply for the Student Council. This is an incredibly important role in school and enables students to have a voice and represent both their own ideas and those of their peers. All students in Year 3 to Year 6 have been invited to apply by submitting a short video message in Seesaw. We can’t wait to share these and introduce our new Student Council in the next couple of weeks. More information about the process has been posted here to the Primary Newsfeed.

We have made writing books available for collection at the front of school, as well as library books and some additional home learning items for selected year groups. We truly hope that Virtual School will not continue too much longer, but we are also mindful of finding new ways to engage and inspire.

The way we communicate between home and school also had some updates this week. Seesaw Messages now enables a greater degree of flexibility and ensures conversations exist within school systems. We hope that you have had an opportunity to have a look at the new features, an overview is available here on the Primary Newsfeed. Within Seesaw, parents (and students) can now start a conversation with staff and maintain an open dialogue. The new updates also allow for parents to message me directly by replying to any of the messages I send out. If you have any comments, updates or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A reminder that Tuesday is a public holiday due to Chinese New Year and I would like to wish Gong Xi Fa Cai to all those celebrating. I hope that you have the opportunity to spend time with family and friends. We will be sharing some ISB Chinese New Year celebrations in the Assembly next week. I am sure that the day will be full of colour and sound.

The Primary House Captains from Bandar and Seria have challenged us all to create some ‘Fake News’ this week, full details are available in Seesaw and also posted here on the Primary Newsfeed.

This week, Pre Kindy and Kindy have continued to grow and develop important communication skills as well as enhancing their fine and gross motor skills, Reception have been making shapes, Year 1 have created Chinese New Year Lanterns, Year 2 have edited their animal writing, Year 3 have been comparing statements in Maths, Year 4 have been making a multiplication flower, Year 5 have been measuring area and Year 6 have been shading circles.

We are all working towards a swift return to campus, thank you for your continued resilience, patience and understanding whilst we wait for more updates.

Mr Michael Everett | Head of Primary
