Jockey Club Sarah Roe School’s latest newsletter is available to read now. Find out the latest news around the school and upcoming events.
A warm welcome back to term two.
We also welcome back our Occupational Therapist Laurena Chen and Kit Fung who is our nurse while Christine is on leave.
Thank you to all the families and staff who donated generously to Crossroads at Christmas. We were able to donate 28 school stationary kits that will help children with their education.
The weather for the Special Olympics day last Saturday could not have been better and our students obviously enjoyed themselves coming away at the end of the day with so many medals. I certainly enjoyed cheering them on and thank Mike and Martin as well as all the family members for supporting this wonderful event. See more details later in this newsletter.
This term our unit of work is ‘Signs, Symbols and Signals’. As part of this today we are at Inspiration Lake on a whole school picnic. Not only are we enjoying the fresh air (we had planned on sun!) and games we are incorporating our class work around the unit and the ASDAN module on using ICT. Thanks Carol for organising this and to parents who are now using the e-notice to give permission for outings and school activities.
One of the many advantages of working as a professional learning community with KGV and KJS is that we share professional learning opportunities. This week the leadership team were fortunate to join our colleagues and work with world renowned educator and presenter Simon Breakspear. We discussed leading practices around professional learning for staff. We celebrated the many ways we are doing this very well and how we might make it even better.
Next Saturday is the annual ESF’s Got Musical Talent event at Grappa’s in Central from 2-6pm. The money raised supports our PTA and students with additional needs across ESF. Secondary students from ESF have an opportunity to showcase their work and I am always so impressed by the professionalism and creativity that is on show. I encourage you to come along and support us. More details in the poster later in this newsletter.
