With our school year to go, things at Coolbinia Primary School are beginning to wrap up, but we still have an action packed three weeks to go! Here's a brief snapshot of what we currently have on the go at the moment;
We had another successful Fume Free Friday event today! Developing a close working relationship with the staff member who writes and releases our school bulletin ensures that we have our fortnightly community updates. As it was our second last Fume Free Friday for the year, the Term 4 Your Move students wrote a brief piece that introduced themselves and advertised the event. Numbers were high due to the fantastic weather and a number of our classes are currently participating in Bike Education workshops during their PE classes. It was great to see the school bike racks to full.
The Year 5 teachers who run our Your Move program reflected on what we were able to achieve this year and set up what we are aiming for in 2020. It was great to be able to link the Your Move program into our PBS token system to increase the visibility of Your Move. We are looking to PBS into our Waste Wise program next year also. We are currently finalising which teacher(s) will be undertaking the Your Move program next year and making sure that we have one regular planning day set aside each term next year to maintain our achievements and ideas from 2019. The Term 4 Your Move students will soon be cashing in our points for some exciting new prizes for our 2020 events as they will expire by the end of this year. Having the students select the prizes makes the process all the more enjoyable and we can select prizes based off student interest and demand :)
Last week we had our Kindy Talk for our new parents. It's great to get positive feedback regarding the array of sustainability programs being run at Coolbinia. After the Kindy Talk, our student leaders conducted school tours to show parents the school facilities and some of the classrooms.
