Head of Primary Message Week 27

A wonderful yet exhausting first week back on campus. Thank you to the entire ISB community for ensuring the transition was a positive experience for children of all ages.

Firstly, we know that there have been issues this week with traffic. Mr Macfadyen will be writing to all parents today with details which will also be published to the Primary Newsfeed - full details here. These new systems will ensure a safe and efficient collection for students of all ages.

Within the new systems, better provision will be in place to ensure all students in Year 2 and below can be collected by an adult from their classrooms.

We are pleased to report that the ART system is working well, and I would like to thank all families for uploading their results each Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evening. As previously stated, no student has been permitted to stay on campus if this process has not been completed.

We have recently posted some photos of the first week back on campus HERE and HERE which show the pure joy of returning. We are so incredibly proud of all our students who have this week seamlessly transitioned back to face-to-face teaching and learning; they really are a credit to you as parents.

Speaking with students of all ages this week, they have been physically tired and are getting used to being on their feet for a lot more of the day. We hope that all children are sleeping well each evening after a full day of active learning.

Term 3 promises to be very busy and full of exciting learning opportunities. Next Friday, 22nd April, we will be celebrating Eco Week and students will be invited to wear green and donate $1 which will go to the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. Earth Day celebrations will take place in assemblies on Friday 22nd April and we will have a particular focus on Borneo biodiversity.

Students in Year 2 and below will be back in the pool next week and we can’t wait to see splashing and swimming. There was no holding back Pre Kindy and Kindy who today had a fun, wet and messy morning. There was paint, water and bubbles everywhere which was wonderful to see.

We know that there has been lots of information shared this week. It is important all parents have access to the Seesaw Family app. This will ensure all messages are received and available for reading. Seesaw remains our key communication tool, with school messages, photos and videos, curriculum content, certificates, useful links and more. It is also quick and convenient to message me or your child’s teacher within the messages feature of Seesaw. If you have any issues connecting or require assistance to activate the Seesaw Family app, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A reminder that school is closed on Tuesday 19th April. I hope you have an enjoyable and restful weekend with your family.

Mr Michael Everett | Head of Primary
