From the Team Leader

Dear Families,

We have had a wonderful start to the year and the 3/4 classes are ready to jump in to all of the exciting experiences on offer this term!

Term 2 brings with it our year 3/4 camp to Birrigai and the chance to strengthen relationships. Our time away at camp is a great opportunity to practise our learning asset focus of self-management that we explored in term 1. This term, all 3/4 classes are introducing and developing the learning assets of communication and collaboration. Effective communicators are confident, responsive and respectful and collaborators are empathic, compassionate and reliable. These skills are transferrable across all areas of learning and into our own lives. The 3/4 teachers have worked with the experienced teaching staff at Birrigai and have developed a program full of fun and exciting learning experiences to support growth in these areas.

As you will be aware, this year we will be having our third Artists’ and Writers’ Festival. This is a special time at Turner where students, staff and families immerse themselves in the creative world of writing and creating art. At Turner, we greatly value creativity and foster children to explore and develop their creative thinking. Creativity is not something you are born with; creativity is a skill that can be developed in anyone. Our festival provides a wonderful platform to build this in everyone! More details will be available throughout the term, including information about how you can volunteer your time or expertise to support our festival!

There are 8 classes in the 3/4 team. They are:

  • Kristina Charman - 3/4 Magic Carpets
  • Leonie Straiton - 3/4 Jumbucks
  • Eddie Jenkins - 4 Gizmos
  • Alex Lilly - 3/4 Our Place
  • Iesha Siotis - Unstoppable Pelicans
  • Hana Kramer (M-TH) and Roger Rosser (F) - Moon Bears
  • Michael McDougall, Jess Engele and Erika Parkinson – Jazz Musicians
    (the Jazz Musicians are our co-located small class and are supported by our learning support assistants Jayne McDonald, Helen Misa and Rachel Price)

Thank you for all you do to support us and your child at our school! If you have any questions about our programs or would like to chat, please don’t hesitate to contact the school on 6205 6622.

Warmest regards,

Iesha Siotis
3/4 Team leader (Acting)
