Welcome back everyone after, what I am sure has been a wonderfully sun drenched holiday. Our students and staff are bursting with enthusiasm as they settle into this first term of the 2015 school year and are already setting their goals. We are straight into learning with a range of initiatives on the horizon. Stay tuned for information regarding our ‘Parent Information Evening’ and Goal Setting meetings and start training for the annual Parent / Teacher / Student swimming race – dates below.
The Room 3 upgrade is now almost complete with a great deal of work being done throughout the holidays. Do pop in and have a look at our brilliant new junior learning environment. We are delighted with the vibrant result and our young students can’t wait to be in it.
Keep a look out for our new Brooklyn Logo, which will be making its first appearance very soon.
LET’S GET INTO LEARNING!
Have an amazing week Mums and Dads.
