Newsletter Term 4 Week 2

Message from the Deputy Principal This year we have introduced a new whole school incentive to reward students who consistently try their hardest in all learning areas and always follow class and school rules. One of the reasons for introducing this reward is to recognise students who don’t necessarily show high levels of achievement but always put their best effort into everything that they do. Students have been nominated by their classroom teacher at the end of each term so far this year and have received an icy treat and extended recess break. The number of students nominated by each teacher may vary depending on various factors. This Friday, students who were nominated by their teacher for consistent effort and behaviour in Term 3 will be rewarded with their extended recess break and icy treat. Well done students!
