I trust this finds you all well and settled into the term.

As a school we are on a journey and deepening our awareness of Noongar culture and understanding of their strong connection to boodja (land) and the environment. As we tip over into May the change in weather during Djeran is clear. Cooler nights, the start of the rain and the wonderful flora that is putting on the last show of colourful flowers and seeds to nourish the birds before Makuru arrives in June.

The School Development Day this term was filled with high quality professional learning opportunities for our staff – all linked to our new Strategic Plan. Engaging ways to challenge our highly capable students, rejuvenation in early childhood and Instructional coaching occupied the morning, and during the afternoon we participated in a traditional basket weaving project with a local Aboriginal organisation, FISH. It was a fantastic way to keep the hands busy and minds open while we learnt about some traditional mindfulness practices of our First Nations people. Our brilliant Education Assistant, Mya Chiang was the star of the day with her beautiful creation. We even have the beginnings of a basket travelling around the staffroom being collaboratively made by staff during break times. It was lovely to have our P&C president Jem Plaisted join us for this activity.
