From the Principal
I had the privilege of greeting the students and teachers this morning, and welcoming them to the start of an amazing Term 2. I am really looking forward to getting to know you all, and you getting to know me. When people make new friends, they find out about each other. This morning I shared with the students three things that I wanted them to know were important to me. Firstly I spoke about Love - the kind that the Bible tells us that God feels for the world. I also want each child to Learn - to reach their full potential. Finally I want our children to Lead themselves, each other and the world. You can follow the #LoveLearnLead on our Facebook page to share the journey.
Term 2 is winter uniform time! It was great to see the children wearing their blazers and ties, shiny black shoes and with their new haircuts to make them look super smart. They looked so smart. If you are not sure as to the winter uniform requirements, please refer to Uniform Guidelines. If your student does not currently have a winter uniform, they may continue to wear their summer uniform until it arrives.
Mother’s Day Morning Tea
We love our mums, and we want to honour them for the wonderful way they love and care for us. To do this, we will be having a special Mother’s Day assembly and morning tea on Friday 5th May. You are invited to bring along other mums, grandmothers, and aunties to enjoy a special time with the students, followed by a delicious morning tea in the children’s classrooms. The assembly starts at 9:00am.
School Start and Finish Times
At ACC we want to maximise the learning that happens while your child is with us. Teachers open their doors at 8:30am and students are required to be in class and ready for learning by 8:45am. If your child arrives after 8:45am, we request that you take them to the office to sign them in, where your child will receive a late notice to be given to the teacher. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter to assist us to meet the Department of Education Services’ requirements to account for student attendance.
At ACC we are dedicated to keeping your child safe. After school care is not currently provided at the school, so we require that your child is collected at the appropriate times. To assist you in making suitable arrangements, the following finishing times of after-school activities are listed:
Monday: No activity 3:00pm
Tuesday: Chinese Club 3:15-3:45pm
Wednesday: Choir/Drama 3:15-3:45pm
Thursday: Sport 3:15-4:15pm
Friday: No activity 3:00pm
Throughout the term there will be many opportunities for us to share our stories and get to know each other. These include through the Parents and Friends and Family nights. I’ll keep you posted when these events have been scheduled. Please feel free to make a time to chat with me, should you have any concerns. As I will be teaching some days, you will need to book a time to see me through Joan in the front office.
