 PRINCIPALS’ REPORT

What a week! RGLPS was bubbling this week. NAPLAN was in full gear, regional records were broken at swimming and 3 Blues met an ecstatic principal. Five students have progressed past regional swimming and onto represent the State. Well done to Liam, Rohan, Xavier, Charlie and Sam and also to Amber who has really cultivated a very strong culture of persistence in the short time that she has been with us at Golf Links.

Celebrating Susan Gorham

After 21 years at Golf Links Susan Gorham, our beloved business manager, has decided to pull up stumps and embark upon retired life. From a personal perspective, I have worked closely with Sue since I commenced in the role in 2020 and I have been privileged to work beside her. Not only is she an outstanding business manager, she is also a great manager, building such great culture in her team. Most importantly, Susan is a very kind, genuine, empathic, and supportive person. No request has ever been too great, and I feel lucky to be able to call her a friend. Sue, we will miss you everyday, your commitment to the school and students has been such a wonderful asset to our community. Enjoy the next phase and come and see us any time.

A Visit from Carlton

The excitement at Golf Links on Wednesday was unbelievable. From the moment that Tom De Koning, Matt Owies and Elijah Hollands walked into the school until the moment that they left the grounds, it was difficult to remain calm. The noise replicated the 90,000 odd Carlton supports attending the MCG during finals time.

Our students discussed the great value of persistence and resilience and how a strong sense of these skills allows you to succeed in various career pathways. It was terrific to relate useful skills to the footballers in attendance and give examples of persisting through challenges and showing respect in all scenarios. I did mention to the players that we definitely measure the success of our school by how many Carlton supporters we have when they graduate from Year 6 and requested a premiership this year. #Flaggers.

School Council Sub-Committees

Whilst the rigor of school council elections is completed, we also run a number of school council sub-committees. These sub-committees give us the opportunity to engage with our families around the day-to-day workings of our school.

Last year we ran with 5 sub-committees. These were, finance, school council operations and fundraising, facilities, instrumental music, and policy. In 2024 we will run 4 sub committees. Finance, Policy, Facilities & Environment and Community & Fundraising. These sub-committees rely on the knowledge, expertise and engagement of our families and will be open for members soon. If you would like to join one of our sub-committees, please contact me and we will accommodate your request.

Early Finish Thursday 28th March

Our final day of term is Thursday the 28th of March. We are finishing at 2:30pm with a short assembly at 2:00pm. As usual all parents are invited to attend. It is always a special assembly when the Easter raffle is drawn so we do hope to see you there.

 

Take care,

ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL’S REPORT

Performance Schedule:

 

Monday, June 17th:

  • Students with surnames beginning with A-L will perform.

This schedule ensures equitable performance opportunities for all students, streamlines attendance for audience members to a single night, and effectively manages audience size, addressing the challenge of securing larger venues.

 

Synopsis:

When Lily finds her Grandpa’s old Nokia brick, she assumes it’s some ancient technological device. Upon showing her friends and trying to press every button, they realise it is so much more and end up in an era, long before their time. With no obvious way to get back, they must use the devices and characters of the time to find their way home. However, time is ticking and if they don’t find a way, they will not only be stuck but they’ll be stuck with very poor Internet!

FUNDRAISING NEWS

We are thrilled to share some incredibly exciting news with you all! Thanks to the incredible support and generosity of our school community, we have successfully achieved our fundraising goal for the installation of shade sails on our school grounds.

It is with great thanks that we announce that we got very close to our target fundraising amount to replace the shade sails. The school was able to use some of our maintenance funds to make up the difference to complete this project. This achievement is a testament to the dedication and commitment of every member of our school community who worked hard over the last year to raise much needed funds. Please send out a huge thank you to all of your friends and family who contributed.

Your generosity and support have made it possible for us to create a safer and more comfortable outdoor environment for our students.

Please return raffle tickets and money to the office by Wednesday 27th March.

Winners will be announced during our end of term assembly on Thursday 28th March at 1:30pm.

All funds raised from this event will go towards upgrading in class technology to assist teaching.

2024 District Soccer Round Robin

Today, our soccer teams showcased their determination and resilience at the District round-robin Tournament.  Despite facing some tough opponents, both our boys and girls teams demonstrated exceptional skill on the field.

The boys team secured two hard-fought victories while enduring two narrow losses, one of which was decided in sudden death (and the other after their sudden death loss when they weren’t felling great!) Goals were scored by Hamish, Julien, James P and NoahT, each contributing to the team’s impressive performance.

Similarly, our girls team showcased their prowess with three resounding victories, only faltering in one match that was decided in a shoot-off.  Zoe G led the charge with an incredible four goals, supported by goals from Lauren C, Asher K and Madison.
