Our Year 3 to 6 students had a very busy day on Wednesday with our annual cross-country run. Students paced themselves and completed the course with several posting excellent times that will move them onto the next level. We also ran our annual ANZAC ceremony on Wednesday. It is so wonderful to see our student leaders take such an active role in these things. The only downside was that the weather was unpredictable and prevented us from finishing the ceremony outside. I was so proud of the resilience demonstrated by our leaders as they quickly adapted to an indoor alteration. That true ANZAC spirit demonstrated as they pushed on even though conditions were not perfect was a real credit to them.

2024 Student Attitudes to School Survey

We value student voice as a means to improving student engagement, wellbeing and quality instruction and are conducting a survey to find out what your child thinks of their school.

The AtoSS is an annual student survey offered by the Department of Education to assist schools to gain an understanding of students’ perceptions and experience of school. Students will be asked about their thoughts and feelings in relation to their school, their learning, peer relationships, resilience, bullying, health and wellbeing, physical activity, and life in general.

This year, the AtoSS will be conducted from the 13th to the 31st of May.  If your Child is in Year 4, 5 or 6 we will be sending further information regarding this survey. Do keep an eye on Compass as the information will be communicated through there early next week.

Education Week 2024

Education Week is an annual celebration of education in Victoria.

In 2024, Victoria will celebrate Education Week from Monday 13 May to Friday 17 May.

The theme will be Spotlight on STEM, a chance for schools to celebrate and share how they bring science, technology, engineering, and maths to life in the classroom.

We will have an open morning for prospective 2025 Preps on Thursday the 16th of May and an open morning to celebrate education week on Tuesday the 14th of May. Keep your eyes peeled to the newsletter as we offer further information as to how we will celebrate educational advancements during education week.

Mother’s and Special Person Day Celebrations

Don’t forget, we will have a coffee cart at school with coffee and hot drinks available to purchase before school. We also have a new event on Friday the 10th, Mum’s and other special people are invited to a celebratory morning tea. There are QR codes around the school for registration. Don’t forget to register as we would love to see you there.

The Mother’s Day stall will be on Tuesday 7th May, with gifts available for students to purchase.

Before I sign off, I did want to say that our Numeracy Learning Specialist Sarah McLellan will be commencing her Family Leave today. Over the last few years Sarah has hugely impacted the Numeracy learning at RGLPS, enhancing our community Maths mindset and assisting us to confidently develop new models of practice and implement a new curriculum. In a few weeks some other new learning will occupy Sarah’s mind and we wish her as much success in her new role as she has brought to the role of Numeracy Leader. Sarah, enjoy the next little bit and we will all see you very soon.

Take care everyone,

Resilience Project

The Resilience Project is committed to teaching positive mental health strategies to prevent mental ill-health and build young people’s capacity to deal with adversity.

Teachers and students will engage in weekly lessons and activities around the key principles of Gratitude, Empathy, Mindfulness (GEM), and Emotional Literacy to build resilience.

Check out their website for more information:

And check out TRP@HOME; a place filled with inspiration and activities for the whole family, to help improve your wellbeing and build resilience.


Working on gratitude helps us to be thankful and appreciate what we have in our lives, rather than focusing on what we don’t have or what we want. When we practise being grateful, we start to scan the world to look for positives – this only takes 21 days! Practising gratitude every day increases our levels of energy, and helps us to feel happier and more focused, determined and optimistic. It even helps us have better sleep, lowers levels of anxiety and depression and we are less likely to get sick. So many benefits – let’s all try to be grateful for the things and people in our lives every day!

Whole Family Activity:

Gratitude Scavenger Hunt

As a family create a scavenger hunt list of things that make you happy or you are grateful for, you can make your own list or use the examples below:

Something that makes you happy

Something you love to smell

Something you enjoy looking at

Something that is your favourite colour

Something you like in nature

Something that is useful for you

Each member of the family uses the list and has to find as many things as they can.

You can hunt for things inside or outside, or both. You can hunt for real things, or you can also do this using magazines or pictures from the internet.

After a set amount of time hunting, come back together, have a look at what each person collected and let them explain why they are grateful for each item.

Family Habit Builder:

Every night at dinner, have each person talk about their favourite thing about that day.
