Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 1 Week 3

Date: February 10, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

As we end Week 3, I wanted to congratulate our students on three wonderful leadership inductions. Last Friday we inducted the White Rock Junior school leaders, on Monday we inducted the Kewarra Beach Junior school leaders, and today the White Rock Senior school leaders. It was terrific to watch our leaders take their pledges and to see the support of their fellow students, staff and parents. Student leadership is a very important part of setting the culture of a school and I am very confident our leaders will do us proud.
I was lucky to be taken for a walk by two of our parents, Rob and Mick, through Sawpit Gully on Wednesday. The work done by so many of the TAS community over the years to create beautiful green areas around the ovals of the White Rock campus has made an incredible difference and the cross country track is quite amazing. If you have been involved over the years in working on cutting back wild grasses, or planting and tending the trees, our grateful thanks for your contribution.
It was exciting for us to meet with architect Charles Wright and his team this week to start the process of designing a new covered area for students at Kewarra Beach. I am looking forward to keeping you up-to-date on this process throughout 2017. I also had the opportunity to attend the first Parents and Friends meeting at Kewarra Beach. Thanks to Trish and members of the P and F for your obvious commitment and passion to TAS and raising funds to help provide improvements for our students’ learning environment and materials.
Finally, thanks to Steve Phillips, our Director of Information Services, and his team for their Year 6 laptop information evenings for both our White Rock and Kewarra Beach students and parents.
I have been reminded in first three weeks at TAS that nothing makes the day better than a big, welcoming smile in the morning from a Kindy, Prep or lower junior student excited to be coming to school.
Have a relaxing weekend.
