Student Return

I would like to congratulate the students on their resilience and positivity as they transitioned from remote and flexible learning to normal class for the fourth time.

 

The students have got back to work in a calm, orderly manner and worked really hard to ensure the interruptions to learning have minimal impact. I have also seen the excitement of reconnecting with friends and teachers. It reinforces how important our school community is and I know we all have a newfound appreciation for school life. Thanks again for your support during these transitions.

 

Staffing Grade 2

In Term 2 2020, Sarah Santaera took maternity leave from her position in the Grade 2 team and worked with Zoe Loudon to take over teaching at the grade 2 level in her absence. We have been extremely proud of this transition and have been really impressed with Zoe’s work with the grade.

 

Sarah has confirmed her return to Grade 2 teaching from term 3 and this means we have begun a handover process over the last two weeks of term from Zoe back to Sarah for the remainder of the year. It has been great to have Sarah back reconnecting and planning with the team.

 

We are delighted to welcome Sarah back to her position from maternity leave and we are also sad to see Zoe leave after becoming such a wonderful part of our BWPS community over the past 12 months. We are very thankful for her work and unsurprisingly Zoe has been snapped up by Moorabbin PS for the remainder of the year. We wish her all the best in the role and will stay in touch.

 

Thank you for all the wonderful messages of support for Zoe from the Grade 2 parents and carers.

 

2022 enrolments

We have had unprecedented interest in the school regarding enrolments for 2022. Thank you for those that have submitted enrolment forms for 2022. Please submit enrolment forms as soon as possible to help with the planning process.

 

Early Dismissal Friday

A reminder students will be dismissed at 2.30pm on Friday. We wish you a wonderful, quarantine, restriction free break.

 

Have a great week.

Organic vegetables from our garden

Our school vegetable garden survived neglect during lockdown and the big storm last week. Consequently, we will have another veggie sale on Friday after school.

 

Remember to bring a gold coin and a plastic bag if you would like to purchase something. Thank you
