Message from the Principal – T4, Wk 4

Hello Dear Parents and Community Members,

I wanted to share with you today a story about one of our inspirational Year 3 students. Molly Taylor decided that she would like to donate her hair to the Variety’s Wigs for Kids program after hearing her aunty talk about what the Variety Children’s Charity does for sick children. Molly became aware that her hair needed to be at least 35.5cm long to be of use so continued to grow her hair until it reached this length. As you can see from the above photos she has achieved her target and some children in WA will now benefit from her gifted tresses. We are all very proud of her community minded generosity of spirit. Well done, Molly.

Trish Collins, our Librarian, is on the last ‘leg’ of her PhD data collection which involves looking at how values drive children’s behaviour. Trish’s research is the only research being done in Australia about children’s values. There are now studies being undertaken in Israel and Germany in relation to children’s values and these researchers have adopted the animated values instrument created by Trish. We are very proud of Trish and St John’s involvement in this research. Another student values survey is being conducted by Trish this term and she has asked that you read the information pertaining to this in the newsletter attachment and let her know if you do not want your child to participate.

Our AGM will be held on Tuesday evening the 27th November and attachments for P&F Class Representative roles and nomination forms are available with the newsletter. We are looking for two Board members to nominate for the 2019 year and lots of P&F Committee members in addition to the Class Reps.

Regards
Mary Bizzaca
