Term 3 Week 9

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

CARNIVALE 2017

What a wonderful day it was. So many happy faces. Fantastic! I would like to acknowledge our students for their exemplary behaviour on the day. Though there were a few overly excited children in the playground before school, the manners and behaviour on display throughout the day was outstanding. When I spoke with ride operators and parent volunteers, every single one of them, every single time wanted to compliment our students’ manners on the day. Well done to all boys and girls. Manners don’t cost anything, but help the world go around. Special thanks must go to our wonderful P&C led by Mrs Karen Wicks. You have given your time to ensure that the day was the success it was – lots of fun for our children and substantial funds raised for the benefit of the school. Special thanks also to Mrs Henderson for taking the lead role in the school in making the event happen. We appreciate you giving so much of your time.

Term 3 Week 3

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

EDUCATION WEEK 2017

Week Three, Term Three. It is Education Week once again. This year’s theme is ‘I learn, We learn.’ This indicates that learning is best done, not in isolation, but collaboratively together. Learning is best undertaken when new concepts can be explored and investigated and discussed. When learning together, learners are able to consolidate their depth of understanding by confirming, challenging and defending ideas. When working together, learners can review evidence and draw links and conclusions. When working in isolation the consolidation and the acceleration of understanding is limited by the power of one brain only. When we can share different ideas, different perspectives and different strategies we can go deeper. We need to build a culture of learning whereby learning together is the norm.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

THE AI RACE

You may have seen the ABC TV program ‘The AI Race’ last week. The program highlighted the advancement of Artificial Intelligence in recent years and the likelihood of technology advancement replacing both blue collar and white collar jobs in the coming 10-15 years. Unfortunately this is not science fiction. It is estimated that 40% of current jobs will be automated in the coming two decades while 73% will be ‘seriously disrupted.’ If you missed the program, you might be fortunate enough to still see it on ABC iView. This is compulsory viewing for all parents and all educators.
