Head of Primary Message Week 20

A focus on Wellbeing is essential at this time. As a school we take a very holistic approach to ensuring each child excels and we continue to plan for their return to campus.

Within the House & Wellbeing folders on Seesaw, there has been a focus on the Winter Olympics, did you spot the PE staff toboggining through the campus? There have also been Eco Activities as well as opportunities to Think Scientifically.

Moving forward, each week of Virtual School will now contain one House and Wellbeing day. The day of the week will move forward by one day each week, meaning the next House and Wellbeing day will be Thursday 17th February. This day will run on a completely new theme and staff are already hard at work to create fun and engaging learning opportunities designed to move children away from screens and get them up and moving. This week we also encourage students of all ages to ‘Move your feet, play and be free’.

Opportunities for leadership at all levels are very important to our school community. This week, we showcased some extraordinary students who demonstrated that they are inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. All of the applications were fantastic and special congratulations to Josh, Alannah, Jai Dua, Hattie, Jerrick, Roohan, Mitchel, Anggun and Catherine. I know that you will work exceptionally hard alongside Mr Trent to ensure continued improvements across the school.

The staff wildlife photography competition came to a close with more than 250 votes from students and family members. Special congratulations to Mrs Etaf for her amazing photograph.

The House Captains need some help! Virtual school has now gone on for far too long and they have run out of ideas for House Challenges. Can you come up with fun and engaging challenge ideas and share them with the House Captains in Seesaw? The winning entries will be invited to join the Assembly to introduce their challenge to the entire ISB community.

Pre Kindy have been in the Wellness Garden recently and it has been smiles all round as they continue to enjoy life back on campus.

Whatever you choose to do over the weekend, have a relaxing break.

Mr Michael Everett | Head of Primary
