Farewell Term 2
Well, that was quick! Half a school year over in what seems like a blink of an eye…
Our Sanskrit competition today was AMAZING! Thank you to everybody who attended. We all were proud as the students stood up on stage with confidence and grace, filling the room with peace and calm. It was truly remarkable!
Thank you to Miss Pope, Mrs McNab and the classroom teachers who prepared the students beautifully.
As the term comes to a close, staff are busily packing boxes and moving furniture to prepare for our Stage 2 building works due to start sometime over the holiday period. This is an exciting milestone in the life of Erasmus Primary School. A new building awaits, and we couldn’t be more excited for all the new possibilities it brings.
New classroom spaces are as follows:
Year 1’s move to the Art Room
Year 2’s move to the Music Room
Year 5/6’s move to the Library
Music lessons will be moved to the Philosophy & Sanskrit space; Miss Pope will take some Philosophy lessons in classrooms. Art Classes will also be taken in classrooms.
Special thanks to Mrs Jowett and Miss Nugent, who have worked tirelessly over the past two weeks to ensure this move happens as smoothly as possible. They have been rearranging, cleaning and moving, and we are so grateful for your help.
Our ‘Maintenance Guru’, Matthew Tonta and his team of parent helpers have been exceptional in ensuring that the move happens smoothly – they have also been busy managing the move to ensure the remainder of the staff are supported and organised. What a team!!!!
As we move into the holiday period, I thought I’d leave you some thoughts about our wonderful dining room and the kitchen staff and parents who work daily to fill our bellies with healthy goodness. The primary objective of mealtimes at Erasmus is to ensure the students are sufficiently and appropriately nourished to optimise their learning, engagement and sense of wellbeing. All children can be on a different food journey, and part of our role is to encourage the students to taste the food offered to them despite their likes and dislikes. We appreciate all you do as parents to encourage and support your child/children as they eat, which may not be their favourite food, but certainly good for their bodies.
If you are going away, enjoy a safe and wonderful holiday and if you are staying at home, rest up and enjoy some quality family time.
Thank-you you all for a wonderful term.
Melissa Albers – Acting Principal
