A very big welcome back to all our students and families. We have a big term planned and look forward to getting back into it. I am very pleased to report that during the first week our students have been demonstrating the school expectations and values in the classroom and in the yard and it has been wonderful to catch up with the students and find out about their holiday adventures. This is my first time at Golf Links where many students have actually been able to get away and have a lovely break.
This is just a reminder that Education Week will run from 23-29 May and the theme is “Building Connections”. The theme celebrates the connections between schools and local communities and strengthens bonds with families and careers. We aim to run a few celebratory activities during the week to showcase our learning for the community.
We will have an open morning for our prospective 2022 students on the 25th of May but we will also invite all current families to our open morning on Friday the 28th of May. We look forward to giving our students the opportunity to showcase their learning to our community during this week set aside to celebrate learning in our schools.
ANZAC Day Assembly
As you already know on Sunday the 25th of April it is ANZAC Day. We do want to commemorate this special day with a special ANZAC Day assembly. At 2:45pm on Monday the 26th of April we will hold a special assembly. It will be on the basketball court and all families are welcome to attend. Our usual festivities including student of the week, will not be part of this assembly as we use it to learn about, celebrate and remember those who have served in wars, conflicts and peace keeping operations.
We do ask that students bring a flower to school on Monday as we will combine to make class bouquets to place under the flags. These will then be walked down to the Rosanna Views aged care facility and donated.
We look forward to a very busy and productive term. As always stay well and keep safe.
MORE STUDENTS OF THE TERM (1)
ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL’S REPORT
It has been a very positive and productive start to the term. Our students have come back rested and ready to begin learning. Our overarching focus on sustainability across the school will engage students in learning and creating change to improve our school and the broader community. Each team has a slightly different focus, and this work will help us to retain our 5-star sustainability rating.
We are pleased to announce that we can have parent helpers starting back in our classrooms and school grounds. If you are interested and have time to assist our students and classroom teachers, we would love to have you. We do require you to complete our online reading and acknowledgment statement. This reading will work through several components including: Confidentiality, Literacy, Mathematics, helping your child at home and OHS.

We have now completed the Bridging the Digital Divide process and are currently working on setting up computers to be allocated to students. This work should be complete in about two weeks’ time. Thank you for your patience as we work through this.
We are excited to announce that we have been able to purchase 160 new iPads for the school. These devices will be set up and be able to be accessed by all students across the school to help them with their learning, and to produce work with strong audio, visual components. We aim to have these devices set up and in use in the coming weeks also.
TEACHING AND LEARNING
High Ability Learning Program (HALP)
Thirteen RGLPS students from Year 5/6 participated in their first session of the department’s High Ability Learning Program (HALP) this week. We have three students participating in the Maths HALP on a Monday at 2pm and ten students participating in the English HALP on Tuesdays at 9:15am. All students were selected by the department for these programs based on their academic results. Sessions are held online and conducted by teachers at Virtual Schools Victoria. These students will meet weekly during Term Two with peers from RGLPS and other local schools. Both the English and Maths HALPs will culminate in some form of an event to celebrate student learning and to enable students to meet participants from other schools.
