Dear Rapid Bay families,
We are rapidly approaching the end of Term 1! It is hard to believe there are only a few weeks to go and it promises to be a very busy time.

Pottery Exhibition/Auction
The students have been busily working with Claire to complete the unfinished pottery from late renowned artist Mark Pearse. We are very excited about the upcoming exhibition/auction as part of the Fleurieu Festival. It was fantastic to have Dani from the Victor Times out last week to take photos and quotes from Claire and the students. Check out the Victor Times for the article, it is fantastic to see such positive publicity for our awesome school.
Keep an eye out on our socials for more info and updates for the exhibition/auction.

Term 1 Highlights
It has been a typically busy term so far. Highlights have included welcoming Bailee and Leanne to staff, implementing Initialit and Math Pathways, a fantastic acquaintance night, interviews and our swimming team winning the SAPSASA handicap shield. Lily Rose and Kooper were elected school captains and have made an excellent start to their roles.
Rhys, Logan, Celeste and Harry were elected as our sports captains.

We still have swimming lessons and final preparations for the pottery exhibition to round off a hectic Term 1. I couldn’t be prouder of the students for making a fantastic start to the school year, there is such a positive atmosphere of learning throughout all the classes.

Thanks again to our amazing staff of teachers and SSOs for everything you do for our students. You are all amazing and appreciated.

Have a great week,

Jen
