PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

RGLPS has been a busy place this week with many of our 3-6 students participating in numerous sporting activities such as Division Basketball, Region Athletics and Division Softball. Our JSC ran another successful popcorn stall for our prep students and we ran our first JSC meeting for the term. Thank you to the parents on our School Council Sub-committees for your time in attending our meetings this week. Your time and contributions are always very much valued. This week teachers started our program review process by evaluating what’s worked well and identifying our next best learning moves as well budgeting around our Annual Implementation Plan (AIP) priorities.

Before and After School Supervision

A reminder that staff are on duty from 8:45am each day until 3.45pm. Whilst these are the minimum times, student supervision cannot be guaranteed outside of these hours. Accordingly, if you need to drop students off earlier, or collect later, they should be booked into Out Of School Hours Care program.

Families Moving Schools in 2020

Families who are moving schools in 2020 for whatever reason should advise the office, or myself personally, as soon as possible. This will ensure that your children are not included in grade placements for 2020, and it gives us a greater degree of certainty when planning grade structures, determining whether or not we need to select new teachers and a range of other organisational matters.

Professional Practice Days

All staff are currently in the process of organising their term four Professional Practice Day. The majority of staff will use this day to assess students individually, collect data for analysis and analyse student progress in preparation for end of year student reports.

Whole School Mathematics Day

As a way of celebrating mathematics in our school our Numeracy Strategic Team have organised a whole school maths day on Friday 6th December. The theme for this day will be Charlie and the Number Factory and will focus on engaging students in maths activities and applying mathematics and problems solving skills. The activities organised will model open ended tasks with multiple approaches and pathways to maths. Student will be grouped in year level teams and rotate through activities which will run until lunch time. Students who participated in Maths Olympiad enrichment program will be invited to take on a leadership role as facilitators for the day.

Region Athletics 2019

Congratulations to all who competed for RGLPS at the Northern Metro Region Athletics Carnival. To have made it to the Region Athletics is an amazing achievement as the students have progressed through the school, district and division stage of competition.

On the day, the RGLPS Regional Athletics team competed to the best of their ability and represented the school through determination, courage and sportsmanship. All students showed the RGLPS values of Confidence, Respect and Responsibility throughout the day.

With the competition at a high level, RGLPS had some brilliant individual performances. Congratulations to Sophie, Sathika, Ismail, Lutz, Ruaa, Nida, and Bowen who made it through to State level. What an incredible achievement– we’ll be cheering you on later this month!

Parent Information Session

The Deaf Facility will be hosting a Parent Information Session for all Deaf Facility families.  The information session will have a panel of deaf and hard of hearing adults with lived experiences living with hearing loss.  We have a panel of six or seven adults with varied experiences.  This is a good opportunity to hear what adults with hearing loss have experienced, tips and tricks to further support your child, and ask questions from adults with lived experience.  Please mark Thursday, November 14th, 6:30pm at school in your diaries.  We would like this event to be adults only, as we are hoping this should be a safe place for our families to ask questions.

BAT TENNIS

We made it. Both bat tennis teams getting into the finals, boys undefeated- clear favourites for the flag, girls having only lost one match all season to Viewbank looking great also. Our day started with the girls team beating St Martins, and the boys unfortunately losing to Banyule. The grand final came around before we knew it and the girls were playing with enthusiasm and motivation against the only team to have beaten them all season. There were jumps for joy when the game had finished and the girls realised they had won. This is the first blue flag Bat Tennis has won for Golf Links, what an achievement!

 

I am very proud of all students involved in the bat tennis teams this season, there was clearly lots of passion towards the sport. Both teams should be equally as proud of themselves for the effort they’ve put in each recess and lunch, but girls… it’s off to Region we go!!

Each year level/s will have an allocated time of 15 minutes to run around the oval as part of the Fun Run.  There will be five sets of obstacles set up for students to participate in.  While students participate in the obstacles, the coloured powder will be dispensed on the children.  The students can do as many or little laps of the oval and obstacles within the 15 minutes allocated as they want.  Students will run during the following times:

  • Throw colour during the fun run

Reminder that the event is an out of uniform day.  Ideally children wear a white top, as this will show the colour from the run the most, however any out of uniform is Ok.  If children are attending OSHC after school, please bring a change of clothes in your child’s bag to change into before attending OSHC.
