Remote Learning Booklets for Week 9

Dear Parents and Carers,

Just a reminder that our week 9 Remote Learning Booklets for students in Years 7 – 10 will be available in our canteen carpark from 1- 2 pm today and thereafter on the table outside our school office. Please return completed work when collecting new booklets and ensure that your son or daughter’s name is on the front of each booklet.

At this stage we are awaiting the Premier’s decision about when the stay at home order will be lifted for our LGA. We shall advise re learning in week 10 as soon as we are able to do so. Please keep an eye on our website, Schoolstream or Facebook for updates,

With thanks

Mary Doolan
Principal

 

Chatstarter – Helping parents and young people support each other

Conversations play an important role in recognising when someone is going through a difficult time and connecting them to right type of care.

While we all like to have conversations in different ways, talking to someone about what’s challenging us can be difficult.

#ChatStarter was developed by the National Mental Health Commission in partnership with parents and young people who have experience of mental health challenges and Australia’s national mental health organisations – ReachOut, Butterfly Foundation, Orygen, batyr, headspace, Beyond Blue and Kids Helpline.

Having a small chat can make a big difference. The easy-to-use tips and resources below have been developed by mental health clinicians to help build your confidence and capability to support a friend or loved one who may be experiencing distress or a mental health challenge today.

2021 Minister’s and Secretary’s Awards for Excellence program

Melinda Ryan

Lachlan Eshman

Congratulations  Lachlan and Melinda on receiving the Minister’s Award for Excellence in Student Achievement for 2021!

These awards showcase the exceptional work that occurs every day across NSW public education – by schools, students, teachers, employees and parents.

One of the Public Education Foundation’s primary roles is to celebrate the best of public schooling, and the Minister’s and Secretary’s Awards aims to do that.

Lachlan and Melinda received the following citations:

Lachlan Eshman is an extraordinary young man. He is talented across a range of achievements; academically, on the sporting field, and in a number of cultural pursuits, particularly as a musician, singer and thespian. Within our community however, it has been Lachlan’s concern for others and willingness to assist that has been greatly appreciated. He has mentored younger members of our Robotics team as well as junior students in need of a positive role model. He can always be relied upon by staff to step up, lead and assist.

Melinda Ryan is an outstanding young woman. She has achieved excellence in her studies through her enthusiasm for learning and willingness to work hard to achieve a goal. She has been an exemplary role model in our community through her upholding of our school’s core values of excellence, resilience and respect. She is highly, and rightly regarded by staff as a young woman of considerable talent and integrity, and a well-deserved recipient of this award.
