Thank-you to all students, staff and parents- who I have had the pleasure of meeting- for making me feel so welcome in the first week as Acting Principal at Simpson Primary School.
Our attendance students were thrilled to receive their certificates at this week's assembly. Students who have attended 96%-100% all gain this award.100% winners were: Josh, Ely, Cooper, Kaiden, Peyton, Anna, Ollie, Jordan and Thomas.
Over first term we had four students who had a clean sweep gaining "Gotcha's" for all four behaviours of our C.A.R.E.Congratulations Minka, Keisha, Ellie and Ellen.
Our students are busy practicing their parts for the Community ANZAC service which will be held in the Park on Friday at 10:30. After being cancelled last year due to COVID-19 we are happy to be able to commemorate the day this year. Lest We Forget
Red House (Coradjil) took out the win in our annual cross country event. Thanks to Ms Marr-Vogels for her wonderful organisation of the event which was run here on site for the first time in many years.
Alicia Drew from the AFL development team joined our PE session to help teach some football skills to our Prep to 2 students. Unfortunately the weather caused it to become an indoor lesson but still lots of fun.
Our Prep 1 class made real life people bar graphs showing the number of students in each house on Cross Country day. They used the information to ask and answer questions about which house had the most and least members in the grade.
Breakfast Club will be back in May for all our students to enjoy a top-up prior to class on a Tuesday. Parent helpers most welcome. Please check with Tabatha that your WWCC is on file.
Each week we focus on behaviours that fit our C.A.R.E. values to give out our awards. Congratulations to Xander, Sophie and Ely who all displayed aspiration in their classrooms this week. Working towards a goal and not giving up even when things got tough. Well done.
