Learn and Grow Together

At Winthrop Primary School we live our school motto of learning and growing together. Our whole school pedagogy is built around this motto with a focus on continual growth and improvement in all aspects of our work.

 

We believe that children learn best when each and every one of them is valued, supported, connected and nurtured to develop a ‘can do’ attitude.

 

Our school understands and acknowledges that our values of Respect, Responsibility, Care and Achievement underpin
everything we do.

PRINCIPAL UPDATE

Hello Everyone,

Congratulations to our Yr. 6 cohort for their exceptional attitude in embracing the
challenges of their recent Woodman Point Camp. Camp facilitators and teachers alike noted their maturity, excellent behaviour and willingness to stretch outside their comfort zone. Our Yr. 6 students demonstrated leadership and initiative and did themselves, their family and their school proud in all aspects of the camp. Well done, Yr.6 we are proud of you.

Of course, camp is a significant excursion where teachers agree to be on duty 24/7 for two nights and three full days. They leave their lives, families and pets to ensure a memorable experience for our students. To the 9 staff members who attended camp, totaling 27 days, many, many thanks. Thank you also to the teacher
leaders who backfilled those at camp, supporting me in leading the school.

Acknowledgement also to the P&C for their contribution in gifting each camper a
Leavers Cap. Running a camp is a significant commitment across the school so we are delighted that the Yr.6 cohort so benefited from the camp experience and have now made memories to last a lifetime. On behalf of the students, thank you everyone involved.

This week has been a very busy one, where getting our bodies moving has been a
focus. Well done to our Early Childhood children for their work on the Scoot-a-thon,
many thanks also to our big school kids who did lap, after lap, after lap for our Lap-a-thon. We are still collecting money, raising funds for projects across our school. One of our wish items is a big fan for our yarning place. But that is a big wish because this space is large, and we need a big, commercial style fan which costs a significant sum of money. We think, however it important enough to save for, so monies raised will assist us in meeting this goal in the coming days.

Many thanks to Mrs Cleveland and her many, many parent helpers for organising and running the Lap-a-thon and to those families who came along to cheer us on! Thanks also to Mr Knoth coming to work very early for preparing a child friendly playlist and for safely setting up all sound equipment.

Thinking about moving and healthy bodies and minds, today is Walk to School Day. Well done to the many families, supporting their children to walk safely to school. If you help your child walk safely, that is great. If you can share the load with other families, connecting children to walk with a friend, or two or three, even better! Walking busses are encouraged as a great way to get too and from school. This is a great way to support our school’s Your Move point collection too!

It is the end of Djeran, that means our weather is slowly changing from very hot to
cooler, particularly in the mornings. That means children may come to school wearing a jacket but by lunch time are a bit warm and take it off. Please remind your children if they do so to put their clothes in their school bag. We have a large collection of lost property in the Yarning Area, mostly jackets. You can assist by ensuring:

· Writing your child’s name on personal clothing items – hats and jackets especially.

· Reminding your child to put their clothing in their bag.

· Check lost property before you purchase replacement items.

Kind regards,

Karina Meldrum
