It has been a busy and interesting fortnight in the Junior School as I continue to enjoy meeting members of our school community, visiting classrooms, watching sport on Saturdays and at our ‘meet and greet’ coffee mornings. For those of you who haven’t attended, I would love to see you at 8.30am Friday 31 May. Please click here to RSVP for catering purposes.

Highlights of my classroom visits have included seeing our enVisionMaths toolkit in action. Seeing our students researching flight prices online, comparing business class to economy and calculating total route prices was an excellent example of teachers contextualising mathematics for our boys. Being with some of our ELC boys when Police Officer Richard came to visit one of the classes was wonderful evidence of us building connections and community outside of our walls.

If you haven’t signed up already, I hope that our current and prospective ELC community members will be able to attend the launch of our Early Learning Centre philosophy statement at 8.45am on Tuesday 4 June in the ELC Meeting Room. Please click here to confirm your attendance.

Please refer to the calendar in Keystone for additional upcoming dates for the diary.

The Office Gallery

My office was a blank canvas four weeks ago which prompted me to ask Ms Sally Houston to source students’ artwork to decorate the walls. This led to an idea to feature different art work in my office each term. I’m happy to be celebrating the following artists in my office gallery in Term 2:

Charles Pan Year 1 Exploring Spanish Artist Joan Miro

Nicholas Painter Year 2 Study in Symmetry with Cool Colours

Alexander Piscioneri Year 6 Ais of symmetry in Cool Colours

Benjamin Clayton Year 3 Re-inventing the Colour Wheel

Sze-Siong Koh-Buckland Year 6 24 Rotated Print Designs

Peter Kalamboyas Year 4 Grey Tone Study on Pre-Drawn Image

The artwork has definitely had the desired effect and made me feel even more at home in my new office.
