I trust you all enjoyed the holiday break, especially after the conclusion to term 3 with Grandparents and Special Friends Day. I would like to add my thank you to everyone involved in this special day on the school calendar, whether this be the staff who supported the students with the concert, the parents who helped with donations and preparing the food and the list can go on. I would like to especially thank Lisa Cannizzaro for her creativity and musical expertise for bringing the performance of “Oh the places You’ll Go” to such an exceptional level. The students loved participating and from the feedback from parents, grandparents and special friends they loved being entertained on the day.
This week our Year 4 and 5s are on their camp to Woodhouse to be taken out of their comfort zone with new adventure experiences. – Challenge Hill, the Flying Fox, and cooking for themselves. We also have the Middle School attending the Aquatics Programme at Port Noarlunga where they possibly experience new activities such as surfing, snorkelling and kayaking. Both activities add to their learning experience here at Nativity. Many thanks go to the staff involved in planning and being a part of these activities for the benefit of the students.
Term 4 becomes an exceptionally busy time of the year. The students are bringing their learning to a climax for the year and a considerable amount of planning is happening at a school and Campus level for 2020.
As part of the planning processes each family will receive two email invitations to participate in surveys – Future Planning for Campus and parent input into the review of Sharyn Black in her role as our APRIM (Assistant Principal Religious Identity and Mission). The surveys take a few minutes each and will give us valuable feedback as we plan for the future. Please note the survey for Sharyn Black is part of an appraisal process that is an industrial requirement after her five years in the role. Your comments will affirm her work and offer insight into future planning around our identity as a Catholic school. The Campus survey will help us update the strategic plan for Campus.
I look forward to reading the feedback from the surveys and what term 4 will bring.
