Term 3, Week 8 Notices

Dear Parents

Where has the term gone?!  As we head in to the final two weeks of Term 3, we look back in amazement at the achievements within our school community.  In class, the students have been working hard in a variety of engaging learning experiences aimed at growing both their skills and knowledge, as well as their kindness and empathy towards others.  It has been wonderful to see the involvement of so many students in our co-curricular clubs where they are able to share in the many varied passions and expertise of our incredibly talented staff.

This term we have had a focus on understanding others – putting oneself in another’s shoes and humbly seeking to serve their needs.  It’s been encouraging to see so many students actively building this character of service into their everyday lives; opening doors for others, giving up their turn in a game, looking out for others in the playground who may be looking lonely, giving words of affirmation and encouragement – the list goes on!  It’s words and actions like these that continue to build our wonderful School Community.

As the term draws to a close, we encourage all families to look back and celebrate their child’s successes and accomplishments.  Having these conversations will help to build a positive attitude towards learning; one that values effort, personal growth and a passion for excellence.  This will also help to develop a sense of excitement for learning as we head into the final term for the year.  We know how incredibly important it is for children to have positive memories of their early experiences both at home and at school.  Some activities that families could be involved in together these holidays include:

  • Reading together
  • Exploring the great outdoors
  • Playing board games
  • Preparing and eating meals together
  • Showing affection – no one is too old for a hug!

It’s in these simple actions that we develop long lasting memories that our children look back on with fondness.  We wish you all a restful holiday time and look forward to seeing you safe and sound next term!

Important notice: National data collection on students with a disability

Dear Parents,

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on school students with disability (NCCD) provides all Australian schools, education authorities and the community with a clear picture of the number of students receiving adjustments because of disability in schools, and the adjustments they are provided to enable them to participate in education on the same basis as other students.

The Australian Education Regulation 2013, requires that all schools, provide information to the Australian Government Department of Education and Training (the Department) for the purposes of the NCCD.

The information that Schools must give to the Department includes, in relation to each student with a disability at a school:

  • the student’s level of education (i.e. primary or secondary)
  • the student’s category of disability (i.e. physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional)
  • the student’s level of adjustment (i.e. support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive adjustment).

Please note, any information collected, will not identify any individual student, in any way.

For further information regarding the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data school students with disability, please visit: https://docs.education.gov.au/system/files/doc/other/2017_-_nccd_-_fact_sheet_for_parents_and_carers_v5.pdf

If you have any queries regarding the NCCD, please contact the relevant Learning Enrichment staff, for your specific campus:

A Note for Parents

Dear Parents

Just a reminder that there are no staff on duty in the playgrounds before 8.10am.  Students who arrive at 8am, may visit the Library.  If at all possible, we would appreciate students arriving at school after 8.10am.  We are unable to offer duty of care until 8.10am.

In the afternoon, staff are on duty from 3.10pm – 3.30pm.  Whilst we encourage families to stay after school and enjoy being in community, we are unable to provide duty of care after 3.30pm.  To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children, we ask that parents are present after 3.30pm to provide supervision.

OSH Club is available for all Primary students at the ELC, for before school and after school care.  Their website is www.oshclub.com.au

Term 3, Week 1 Notices

 Community Freezer Contributions

We are really excited to announce that in Term 3 we will have a school community freezer. It will be located in the Get Well Room in the Primary School. The purpose of this freezer is to support families from Pre-Kindy to Year 12 at SSS Duncraig with a home cooked meal when they are going through a very difficult family situation.

If you would like to contribute to this freezer by cooking a meal we would greatly appreciate it. We are looking for simple, nutritious meals that are both family and freezer friendly. These include meat and vegetable based casseroles, lasagnes, hearty soups and mild curries. Please do not use any nut or nut products. Please include all components of the meal e.g. “Casserole with rice” to make it as easy as possible for the families receiving the meals.

Please follow the steps below:

Read the food safety link:

https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/conditionsandtreatments/handwashing-why-its-important

  • Choose your own recipe or look for one at:

http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/collections/freezer-friendly

  • Buy the ingredients.
  • Ensure your hands are adequately washed.

https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/healthyliving/food-safety-when-cooking

  • Cook the meal.
  • Cool the meal and pack in a reusable or recyclable container (either donate a container or collect a foil container from next to the freezer at school). 

  • Label the meal (stickers are available next to the freezer at school).

  • Freeze the meal.
  • Bring the frozen meal to school and place in the freezer for another family to enjoy!

 

Thank you for your support.
