Term 4, Week 6

Children’s University

It is definitely starting to get exciting.  The six students graduating from Children’s University later this month were fitted for their graduation gowns on Tuesday.  I’m sure you will agree they are all going to look great on the night!

This celebration is now beginning to feel real and what a great way for students to be rewarded after a year of independently working towards their goal of graduating.  This is a very student-directed program and as such the merit lies completely on these six graduating students, you all have my congratulations.

Final Reminder for Tickets – Let’s Talk Resilience with Madame Pilote – TONIGHT!

Date:  Tuesday 9 November 2021

Time: 6.45pm

Venue:  Primary Forum, Carramar Campus

Please book your ticket using the following link: https://events.humanitix.com/mp2021

Resilience is a crucial skill to have. Throughout my education career I have seen first hand how more and more important it has become for children to develop this skill at a very young age. Students who develop resilience early in life have a better chance to successfully cope with the many challenges they will face in their future.

I would like to invite you to a one hour workshop where I will share with you some tips and findings I have come across over the years, to help children become more resilient. I have been particularly inspired by a book I read some time ago, called “The Danish Way of Parenting“.

Term 4, Week 4

Orientation Day this Friday 5 November

As we are eagerly preparing for our Orientation Day, we would like to share some news with you in relation to our teachers staffing for 2022.

Mrs Clay and Mrs Wayman will be extending their maternity leave so Miss Genevieve MacNulty and Mrs Rebecca Lawrence will continue in their roles for the 2022 school year. Furthermore, also in Early Years, Mrs Roberts will be going on maternity leave and will be replaced by Miss Melanie Supanz while Mrs French will also be taking some time off thereby allowing us to appoint Mrs Natasha Moynihan to cover her absence.

In Upper Years,  Mrs Cicelia Bartels will be teaching Year 4 in Semester 1 until Mrs Fordham returns from maternity leave for the start of Semester 2 and Mrs Simpson’s extension of leave, in order to care for her family, will enable the appointment of Mr Bailey Simms in Year 5.

Finally, Madame Carniello, Early Years French teacher, will be leaving us after many years of service to join Scotch College and, coincidentally, Mrs Sylvia Richardson will be commencing her well-earned retirement after many years of teaching in both Primary and High School settings. Madame Ioana Branet will therefore be taking the French teaching position from Pre-Primary to Year 6 in 2022.

Please see below the 2022 classroom teachers’ allocation for your information:

Kindy             Mrs Rollings & Miss MacNulty

Pre-Primary Mrs Ashton & Miss Supanz

Year 1            Mrs Saville & Mrs Dicks

Year 2            Mrs Lawrence & Mrs Moynihan

Year 3            Mrs Basmadjian & Mr Berry

Year 4            Mrs Bartels (Semester 1) / Mrs Fordham (Semester 2) & Mr Shinkfield

Year 5            Mrs Langley and Mr Simms

Year 6            Mrs Currell & Mr Sloan

We look forward to sharing many wonderful experiences with our students and community in 2022.

Kind regards,

Madame Pilote

Dear Parents and Guardians

We hope you’ve had a relaxing break with your family. We’ve loved welcoming back our students this morning and look forward to an exciting term ahead! Our inspiration quote for this term comes from Dr Maya Angelou and our ‘welcome assembly’ was based on it this morning:

I encourage you to discuss this quote with your child this term and like us, help them find beautiful acts of kindness they can make to “be a rainbow in someone’s cloud“.

Wishing you every blessing for an amazing Term 4.
