 PRINCIPALS’ REPORT

Meet the Teacher Evening

Our RGLPS teachers found it incredibly valuable to connect with parents and carers during our ‘Meet the Teacher’ meetings this week, whether in person or online. These meetings provided a valuable opportunity to establish a strong foundation for supporting each child throughout the school year. Gathering insights into home learning and reading habits, individual interests, and any health or family-related issues enables our teachers to tailor their approaches and set meaningful learning and wellbeing goals for every student. We extend a heartfelt thank you to all parents and carers for making time to meet with us throughout the week. Additionally, a big thanks to our amazing staff, who, despite some late nights, maintained their enthusiasm and positivity all week long.

School Council

At the time of writing, our election process has not quite completed. Next week I should have more of an idea regarding our structures and I will know if we have to go to an election. Keep an eye out through Compass and the bulletin for further information.

International Women's Day

We celebrate International Women’s Day to honour the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women worldwide. It’s a day to recognise the progress made towards gender equality and to acknowledge the work that still needs to be done.

This year, International Women’s Day falls on March 8th. The theme for 2024 is ‘Inspiring Inclusion,’ which emphasises the importance of fostering inclusivity, challenging biases, and creating a more equitable world for all genders.

Join us in celebrating the achievements of women everywhere and advocating for a more inclusive and equitable future for all!

Resilience Project

We are excited once again to be taking part in the resilience project. I’m sure most families would be aware of the guiding principles of this program by now. However, with many new families joining us this year, I thought I would take this opportunity to share the following fact sheet.

Over the next few weeks we will continue to break down the principles of G.E.M (Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness) and how we can focus in and practice these at home with your families.

It's Time to Join the School Band!!!

RGLPS has a long history of engaging students in music performance via our award-winning Concert band program.

This unique opportunity to play a musical instrument, learn to read music and follow a conductor in a large band, namely the Concert band is popular within schools and allows large numbers of students to participate, have fun and gain a variety of skills.

RGLPS Concert band instruments may include Flute, Clarinet Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Percussion and Electric bass

Students experience the joy of performing music with additional benefits such as appreciation of teamwork, self-discipline, collaboration, and a sense of belonging and community and make friends.

RGLPS ‘s program consists of Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Training bands, each of which rehearse one morning per week before school at 7.30am.

Come along to the Training band Info session on Monday 4th March at 6.30 – 7.30 and see up close RGLPS bands perform and show you and your child the many instruments on offer.

The Training band rehearses on Thursdays and small group instrument tutorials occur during the school day on various days.

TEACHING & LEARNING

‘Meet the Teacher’ Meetings

RGLPS teachers found it highly useful to meet with parents and carers in person or online at our ‘Meet the Teacher’ meetings this week. It was very helpful to touch-base and gather information about each child so we can best support them across the school year. Learning about home learning and reading habits, individual interests, health/family issues assists our teachers to customise the approaches used and to set appropriate learning goals for each child. A big thank-you to parents and carers for making themselves available to meet with us across the week!

SCHOOL CROSSING INFORMATION

The Finlayson Crossing is a busy one, particularly in the afternoon as the families leave in larger groups. It can be tricky with the vehicles coming down Finlayson St with the school rush. Drivers are often distracted, speeding, on mobile phones and occasionally refuse to stop for the crossing. Below are some friendly reminders of how to use a school crossing safely:

             – Please wait behind the yellow line and only cross once the whistle is blown twice. 

             – Please remain between the two white lines when crossing and not cut corners around the red and white posts and                    over the white lines

             – Please don’t cross back over the crossing behind the crossing Supervisor as we can’t see you behind us and it is                        not safe.

             – Please move away from the crossover area once crossed over to let other pedestrians cross over easily

             – Please cross safely by not running, riding bikes, scooters and reduce use of mobile phones / headphones / iPods                      while crossing 

            – Drivers – please don’t drop the children, partners or carers off along Finlayson Street during drop off or pick up. At                      these times, the street is “no standing”. 

           – It is really important for parents, grandparents and carers to lead by example with the children when using the                              crossing.

My job is to keep everyone safe. I love my job and care about the safety of Golflink’s community and feel this is very important. If we all can try to follow these rules, it helps keep us all safe on our way to and from school. 

Thank you 

Kindest regards
