From the Principal:This week our leadership team is engaging in professional learning designed toimprove teaching of literacy across our school. We have attended professionaldevelopment sessions conducted by Associate Professor Misty Adinou from TheUniversity of Canberra. Misty has provided us with an in depth look at how to useliterary texts to support the development of Reading and Writing skills at all yearlevels. She has inspired our work in this area and helped us to fine tune ourapproach in 2019. She has also reminded us of the importance of reading tochildren and using texts to inspire a love of reading in all of us.Later this week we will be meeting two Literacy Coaches that we have secured towork alongside our staff moving into 2019. There will be a strong focus on buildingteacher capacity, working collaboratively and using observation and feedbackto improve our understanding of how to teach all areas of literacy explicitly. This isvery exciting work and something we feel confident will assist us in driving studentlearning.Another very exciting part of this last fortnight was the news that our capitalbuilding works are about to commence. On Friday we met with the Architects,Builders and our project Manager to discuss the order in which aspects of theproject will progress. As most of you will know, we have moved out of the CarolWatt room and the lower part of building A (OSHC Club and Grade 3). This will bethe first part of the project and has an expected completion date of March 27 th2019. The toilets in the Building B (Junior school), will be redeveloped andcompleted over these Christmas holidays. After March 27th, the part of Building Awhich currently houses the year 5 and 6 will begin. It is anticipated that both thenew build and the 5/6 end of the school will be completed at the same time.This is fantastic news and means that our buildings will be completed sooner thanany of us here at school expected!As most of you will be aware, the Carol Watt room will be replaced with a newbuilding due to excessive water and termite damage. This new building willprovide a beautiful aspect to the Bowen Rd entrance and create new outdoorlearning spaces as well.We will keep the community updated as more information comes to hand.Remember there is a display in the main corridor of Building A near the currentuniform shop where you can see some images and plans of the new rooms andlearning spaces.Kind regards,Lisa Branch and Anita Elliot
