Dear Ardeer South Families,

We have had another exciting fortnight at Ardeer South Primary School with a lot happening behind the scenes. It’s always lovely to hear teachers buzzing at this time of the year, celebrating the learning growth that students have made over the course of the year as they complete end of year assessments.

Principal News
At last week’s assembly I had the pleasure of informing the school of my successful appointment to the substantive Principal position at Ardeer South Primary School for the next 5 years. I am looking forward to working with the staff and community in the future. I am really looking forward to making sure that we are providing every student with opportunities to grow and learn. It is certainly an exciting time ahead and I am looking forward to leading the school towards the school motto “Preparing for the Future”

Prep Transition
This week has seen our 2020 Prep children attend their third transition session. During this transition session, our 2020 Prep children had the opportunity to meet their Grade 5 ‘Buddies’ for next year. The students had a great time engaging in activities. I am not sure who had the most fun! It is lovely to see our future Prep children so positive and happy at school.

School Banking
This week I have been told by one of our parents (Oli), that she will be unable to continue doing the school banking next year due to work commitments. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Oli for taking the time to support this school program. I also want to thank and recognise Sibell who also helps out with school banking.
As the year comes to an end, the school banking will also end on 11th December. If you would like to support this program next year, please let me know as it would be great to see some of our parents helping in this area. Banking occurs every Wednesday morning. Oli and Sibell will be very happy to have some new faces helping out and will gladly offer support/training on how to process students banking.

Bikes and Scooters
At last weeks assembly I informed students that they are allowed to ride their bikes and scooters to school. However, they must have their parents permission and they must also wear a helmet. I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate those students who have taken up this offer. I am proud of the way we have used their bikes and scooters. I am also happy to say that they are being very respectful of school rules by not riding them in school grounds.

Toys at School
If a student decides to bring a toy to school it is their responsibility to look after it. We recommend that students always label their belongings. We also recognise that when students are playing, toys may get broken. Whilst we don’t want toys being broken or getting lost, we also recognise that by bringing toys to school this may happen. Please speak to your children about looking after their belongings and being selective about what toys they choose to bring to school.

Crossing Roads
Can I please ask that parents take this opprtunity to speak to their children about safe crossing of roads. Unfortunately, our school does not meet the Brimbank Council criteria to have crossing supervisors. Therefore, we require children to demonstrate safe road awareness when traveling to and from school. Parents can help by showing their children how to cross roads safely, as well as remaining a cautious driver when in vehicles around the school. At last weeks assembly I played the students the following YouTube clip (www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbyKZ_zUGRg) that shows students how to ‘Stop, Look, Listen, Think”. Please share this with your children at home.

2020 Classes
It is hard to imagine that we are approaching the end of week 8, leaving us with 3 weeks of school left for 2019, and what a busy 3 weeks they will be. The teachers are currently busy writing the students end of year reports and the leadership team are working on finalising our staffing for 2020. Once completed teachers will be assigned to classes and roles for next year. The final staff list will be announced in the last newsletter for the school year.

Canteen 2020
As mentioned in the previous newsletter, the school canteen was unanimously recognised as being required for the school as indicated through the whole school survey.
As a result of this, we are now seeking proposals from interested providers to oversee the canteen.
If you know anyone interested in running the canteen, please ask them to present an expression of interest to the school, along with a proposed menu by Friday 6th December – addressed to the Principal.
These details will then be provided to School Council on Monday 9th December for consultation.

School Values
Our School values are important to us. Remember to Respect, Be Responsible and always put in Effort.

Acting Principal
