‘Never miss a moment to celebrate one another’
  • Robin Sharma
Education Week 2020 Today marks the first day of Education Week 2020. What a year it has been. There is little I need to say to elaborate on this because 2020 has had marked impacts on the life of every person in our community, young and old. Education Week typically is a time where we can bring our whole community together to celebrate all that is Public Education. Bringing a community together is challenging at present for obvious reasons. That doesn’t mean we haven’t been united. 2020 has seen innovation on a scale rarely experienced by humanity. This has extended to education, and through uniting as a community we have seen continuity of learning for our children. This year for Education Week we celebrate virtually. Today all students met for a brief assembling outdoors to celebrate the week and acknowledge some award recipients. Following this, students enjoyed a mini film festival in their rooms celebrating this year’s theme ‘Learning Together’. Each of our classes has created a short video montage for Education Week to involve our community in celebrating and still open the doors to all the learning that has occurred in our classrooms and school this year. Each day this week we will be sharing a new class’s video on our public facing school Facebook account at https://www.facebook.com/lakeheightsps/  I encourage you to get online and celebrate with us each day this week. We open our week long film festival today with our youngest learners, Kindergarten, and we will fittingly finish the week with our oldest; Year 5 and 6. Tomorrow our school is welcoming a special guest, our area’s Executive Director Glenn Patterson, as part of Education Week celebrations. I am looking forward to sharing the pride we all have in our school headed up by our school leaders, donned in blazers and leading with a smile. I must take this opportunity to deeply thank both our staff and our community for your work in educating our children this year; it has been nothing short of remarkable. Speaking of bringing our staff and community together in education, we will be having our first Post-COVID PandC Meeting on Monday evening next week, Monday August 10 at 5pm via Zoom. You can join the meeting at Meeting ID 489 780 7076, and you will need the password 137141. Please see our friendly administration staff if you need any assistance, or make contact with Chrissie Talevska, our PandC President. We were holding off in hope of an opportunity to meet in person, but current guidelines still prevent this. I look forward to catching up after a long break, providing an update on school operations, answering any questions and discussing future plans together. Happy Education Week 2020. Kind regards, Kieren Corbyn (Principal)
