Dear Parents and Carers

Term Three has been a very busy and enjoyable one with our Faction and Interschool Athletics Carnivals, the Interschool Cross Country Carnival, the RSPCA Cup Cake Day, Book Fair, One Big Voice Massed Choir, Spelling Competition, the Year 6 camp to Woodman Point and an extensive range of motivating and challenging learning experiences that have our students engaged in their learning.  All of these great activities don’t just happen and I would like to thank all the staff, teaching and non-teaching, for the dedicated, enthusiastic and professional manner in which they have worked as a team to make each event so successful.

Last Wednesday’s Learning Journey was exceptionally well attended by families in all classrooms. As I moved from room to room throughout the evening it was very evident that all students were very proud of the work that they had been doing throughout the term and had the confidence to lead their parents through the different aspects of their classes’ learning journey.

I wish all staff, students, parents and families a safe and happy holidays.

Dear Parents and Carers

Due to concerns over the comparability of the results between those students who completed this year’s NAPLAN online and those that completed the pencil and paper assessments the release of this year’s results have been delayed. The school has been informed that individual student reports will be delivered to schools from September 10, 2018 and after checks on the accuracy of each student’s personal and participation information have been made individual student reports will be sent home to parents and caregivers by the end of the Term Three, 2018. We have yet to be advised when the school will be able to access its data so staff can begin the process of analysis to inform future teaching programs.

I would like to congratulate all the members of our Interschool Cross Country Team on another excellent effort last Thursday, in which Poseidon finished third overall.

This result reflects the time and effort the students and staff have put into training for this event as part of the school’s daily fitness program which commenced at the beginning of Term Two.  Read on for more detailed results and pictures.

Dear Parents and Carers

It’s hard to believe that it is already Week Four of this busy and exciting term.  After a smooth start to the term, where in class the students quickly engaged with their learning, during daily fitness and physical education they began preparing for the planned athletic events.  Interschool Cross Country is scheduled for Week Five.   The Senior Choir will be taking part in the One Big Voice event in Week Five.  The school’s annual Spelling Competition is scheduled to be held in Week 8 which is in between the school’s Faction Athletics Carnival and the Interschool Athletics Carnival.

Our traditional fundraiser of the RSPCA Cupcake Day will be held on Tuesday August 14.  Families are asked to bring their donations to the undercover area in the morning.  Please contact Mrs Mugg if you can help sell the cupcakes from 9:30am.

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back to Term Three and what is shaping up to being another busy and exciting term for the students and staff of our great school. Some of the events that have been scheduled for this term include: the Poseidon Spelling Competition, Book Week, RSPCA Cup Cake Day, Interschool Cross Country, Faction and Interschool Athletics carnivals and the School Photograph Day.

I would like to formally acknowledge the leadership and work of Michael Wright as Acting Principal, as well as both Michelle Porro and Margaret Willett as Acting Associate Prinicipals and Debbie Linehan our Manager Corporate Services whilst I was on extend leave. In particular, for the very effective and sensitive way they worked together to support the school community through the emotional time of Mrs Jo-Ann Why’s sudden passing.

Ms Melissa Boyle will be taking over as the school’s Visual Arts Specialist teacher whilst Mrs Loretta Clark is on leave until the end of this term.  Mrs Wakeb has accepted the responsibility for teaching Drama on Tuesdays for the remainder of the year as Mrs Aarons has decided to reduce her teaching time back to two days per week

Poseidon Primary’s Business Plan for 2018-2020 has now been finalised and is available to view on the Poseidon Primary Website.  Printed copies are also available from the Front Office.
