Our focus at Glen Huon Primary during the current political climate is ensuring we continue to embody the Department’s core value of respect. Respect for each other and each other’s opinions.
As you may be aware there is ongoing industrial action between the Australian Education Union (AEU) Members and the Government. The recent escalation in the action has resulted in the AEU enacting several work bans.
The bans that effect Glen Huon Primary Primary School are:
the ban on including written comments in end of year reports
and the ban on not submitting attendance data into the DoE attendance system.
We have a solution for the entering of the attendance data into Edupoint ensuring there is no impact on our capacity to maintain duty of care for your children.
In regards to reports, the direct statement is as follows; “The Australian Education Union has directed its members not to include comments on Term 4 student reports. This may result in inconsistency in the way in which reports are provided.”
As a school I need to make it clear that we are only required to include one written comment per year and we have met this requirement with our mid-year reports which contained detailed comments and feedback about your child’s progress in learning. Our Kindergarten students will receive a learning portfolio with a collection of annotated work samples and KDC report but no written report.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for further clarification.
We are continually learning and refining our systems particulalry when a problem comes to light. To help us get it right could you please let the office know when there is a long term change to your child's bus routine. This can be recorded on the check sheets so we are less likely to get it wrong.
A huge thank-you to so many people who helped make the Athletics Carnival a success. The support the community gave the students was wonderful. The efforts of many made it happen and is a wonderful example of the community working together for the benefit of our students. Here are some pictures.
This week in Smarties we're learning all about reptiles! Reptiles include snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises and crocodiles.
On Wednesday (9-11 in Kinder) we will be learning about snakes and lizards - we'll meet some lovely skinks, make paper chain snakes and even get busy in the kitchen making sandwich snakes!
On Thursday (9-11 in the bush) we'll be talking about snake safety, meeting some skinks and building a lovely lizard habitat, as well as digging, climbing, jumping and balancing. Come along and get messy in nature!
On Friday (9-11 in the Hall) we'll be singing and dancing, playing with the bats and balls and learning all about lizards. Mrs Jungmann, our Kinder teacher, will be running this Smarties session as Mrs Black will be away.
Hope to see you there,
Jess Black and Annette Carson
This Thursday Nov 15th we are going on an excursion to the beautiful Northwest Bay River in Sandfly- an easy 15 minute walk through native bushland down to a broad, shallow creek where children can splash, build little dams and bridges, throw pebbles in the water and explore nature with joy!
A bus will be leaving Glen Huon Primary at 9:15 and returning at 1:00 Please let Mrs Black know if you'd like to come along - open to all families with children ages 0-5.
Make sure you pack a hat, sunscreen, gumboots/water shoes, a change of clothes and a towel, as well as water to drink. Bring a snack to share, and we can have a lovely picnic by the water's edge.
Hope you can come!
We can all benefit from opportunities to explore our capacity to think creatively.
The Glen Huon teachers are continuing this exploration, applying similar thinking to build our ‘growth mindset’ and ‘persistence’, so that we can support our students to do the same.
Is it possible to draw 4 continuous straight lines, (that is, without lifting your pen off the paper) that pass through the middle of each dot below?

Our Robotics team should be very proud of themselves! They represented our school with amazing teamwork, great respect and serious determination. We didn't win a trophy this time, but even then our team showed great sportsmanship and we knew we'd done our best and had great fun along the way!
Special thanks go to Jackie and Mark Taylor for their fantastic fundraising efforts, and to the Huon Valley Community Bank Branches - without their sponsorship we couldn't have made it happen! Thanks also to Mrs McKay, who's unwavering enthusiasm and support for our team allowed us to reach for the stars!
