Next week is Education Week. This year’s theme is “Today’s schools- creating tomorrow’s world”. We will be celebrating the wonderful learning our students and staff do in several ways during the week with the main event being our open classrooms and Special Assembly on Thursday. A list of events and times have been included below. We are looking forward to seeing many of you over the week as we recognise the great achievements of our Broulee School community.
Congratulations to our boys basketball team who narrowly went down to Culburra PS yesterday. The boys did an awesome job on the court and can be very proud of the way they played and represented our school and themselves. Well done boys and a big thank you to Mrs Jones for her coaching and organisation.
Today our staff received training on the Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions. This is part of the NSW Education Department’s Literacy and Numeracy strategy and is designed to help teachers target individual student need and progress of skills in learning. They cover progression from Kinder to Year 10 and link to both the Australian Curriculum and NSW syllabuses.
National Tree Day last Friday saw our students not only taking proactive measures to help our environment around the school, but also within the Broulee community. They planted trees and shrubs in the school, at Banksia Village and along the Dunes at North Broulee beach. Thank you to Courtney Fink-Downes (Eurobodalla Shire Council Natural Resources Supervisor) who organised the areas and plants for us and assisted the children at school and Banksia Village and to Emma Patyus (Landcare Coordinator) for her assistance at the Broulee dunes.
