Dear Parents/Carers,

As you may be aware, there have been numerous snake sightings this term. The snake catchers have set some traps, which means the school grounds are off limits out of school hours. We are currently exploring all options to try and get on top of the problem. It is imperative that we all continue to remind our students to be vigilant and to know what to do in case they see a snake. Staff are continually monitoring the situation and talking with students about the need to be cautious in the yard. We do ask that students wear enclosed shoes to school.

External Review
Our school will undergo an external review in Week 6. The panel will interview staff, students and Governing Council to gain a clear understanding of where we are in regards to improving student learning. The review team will then provide us with future directions that we will undertake, in order to improve learning outcomes for all students.

Assembly
I was very impressed with the fantastic job Monique and Harry did hosting our first assembly for the term. Assemblies are important as they provide valuable opportunities for our students to speak to an audience. I look forward to our next assembly and encourage parents/carers to attend if they can.

Uniform
A uniform note will be sent out next Wednesday 6th November. Please keep an eye out for it to ensure orders are placed, going into the 2020 school year.

Upcoming Events
Term 4 is always a hectic term. As well as the external review, swimming lessons will take place in Week 8 and 9 at Victor Harbor and we will have our Graduation Dinner and a proposed Carol's night to celebrate the end of another year. Stay tuned for more details on these events.

Regards,
Jen

Mighty Middles News


Mighty Middles New class Pet!!
Last week the Mighty Middles got a new class pet! He is a 1 year old Bearded Dragon who is yet to be named! His favourite thing to do is to lay under his UV light and sleep! He also loves his crickets and milk thistles! The students have been really excited to hold him but he is still adjusting to the noisy lifestyle of the classroom, so only comes out when there are a few students around. This week we will choose a name for him!

Bees wax wraps
This coming Friday, we have our lovely classroom helper Claire McKee coming into school to help all the students in the school make their own beeswax wraps! These will be going home with the students in the hope that we can reduce more general waste from our lunchboxes.

3D printing- Makers Empire
In technology, our students are designing fishing line recycle boxes that can be designed and created on a special 3D printing program. Makers Empire is a 3D printing app that allows students to build and create almost anything, which can then be printed into 3D models made of biodegradable plastic!! Our lesson in technology is to come up with the best design for a fishing line and hook recycle box that could be used at the Rapid Bay Jetty. We are hoping to get the local council on board with our project and have them make a life-sized model of the best finished project. Students have done a fantastic job of making cardboard prototypes of their designs, they now are going to try and create the 3D models on Makers Empire which will be printed off.
