From the Primary Deputy

Welcome to Term 3
Or as I like to call it, “the calm between the storms!”  I trust families have had enjoyable breaks, and that students are ready to go for another term.  Whilst students were enjoying their third week of holidays, staff have been hard at work.  Amongst other things, we have listened to several guest speakers talking about the big ethical issues currently facing schools, particularly Christian schools.  Primary staff have also been looking at the update to the Science syllabus documents, now rebadged Science and Technology.  I am looking forward to the direction this updated syllabus is taking, and feel that students will enjoy the expanded focus.

Staff Updates
Some very exciting news RE: WCCS staff and their families.  Over the past few weeks Mrs Sarah Taylor has welcomed Addison to her family and Mrs Kathryn Kurilowich welcomed Oliver to hers.  Both mums and bubs are doing well.

Reminders
We have a couple of events coming up very early in the term.

  • Zone Athletics Carnival on Tuesday 6th August
  • Soccer Metro Cup and Netball Gala Day on Thursday 9th August
  • Gymnastics also started for Kindergarten and Year 5, on Monday 30th July (first day back!)
