🙂 Celebrations @ Naranga 🙂

A great start to the day @ Naranga 🙂

Dear Students and Families,

It has been a wonderful week full of celebrations at Naranga.

We have had the great excitement of being nominated and short-listed for TWO Sustainability Awards as a ResourceSmart School. This is the direct result of the hard work of many of our teachers, lead by Miss Athiniotis, to develop programs across the school that focus on recycling, gardening and waste management. The categories for which we have been nominated are “Student-led Action Team of the Year” whichacknowledges the fine work of our students in leading their own learning and practices in sustainability. We are also on the short-list for “Waste School of the Year”, in recognition of the recycling and reduced waste practices that have been embedded across the school community.

We are also celebrating the achievements of our staff – our Wellbeing Team (Mr Peter Scott, Jenny Camm, Michelle Spence, Kyria Morgan and Megan Clark-Ash) have been short-listed to the PASS Outstanding Team Award. And Miss Kate Crerar, our Phys Ed/ Dance teacher, has been short-listed for the PASS Outstanding Specialist Teacher Award. We are very excited to be heading off to Etihad Stadium next month for the ceremony which will be opened by the Hon Paul Merlino, Minister for Education.

Last Thursday night Mr Fisher (VCAL Coordinator) and I attended the Frankston Mornington Peninsula VCAL Awards night and were very proud to see two of our students acknowledged. Congratulations to Jesslyn P for winning a Student Excellence Award and to Scot L for his Student Encouragement Award. It was great night for Jesslyn and Scot and their families, as well as for our school.

Paul Edbrooke, State Member for Frankston, who came to our assembly last week put a beautiful picture on his Facebook page stating “Love my job, and sometimes it’s the little things like presenting a book prize that made little Oleira’s day and mine too”.
