Issue 11 – 21st July 2021
I trust that everyone had a relaxing break and is refreshed and ready for Semester 2. On Monday, all staff met to go over the school plans and programs for the upcoming School Review in September. It was a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the past three years as to the progress we have made and develop plans to project us into the future. Among some of the important factors to consider was the feedback from staff and parents from the surveys. There was some really good alignment in the feedback and we are really excited about the next three years and what success this will bring.
WA EDUCATION AWARDS
Thank you to all of the people who asked me to nominate staff for the WA Education Awards. There were many staff whom I received positive feedback about, which consolidates the fact that we have great staff here at GHPS and that our parents appreciate the work that they do.
With the return of Term 3 and the wet weather, there was an incident yesterday at the entry to Pre-Primary where two students were nearly hit by a car exiting the carpark. Whilst there is a second crosswalk there, it would appear that the car leaving was blindsided by another vehicle that had stopped just inside the entry. We are very fortunate that this incident didn’t result in injury or worse. Please be careful when entering and exiting the school as children who walk or ride to school will often be crossing in these areas.
