Sun Smart 2020

Hats are back on.

We are proudly Sun Smart at Kamaroi Rudolf Steiner School, which means we encourage our students to wear hats and sun protection through the warmer months.

The UV index is now at 3+ so in line with the Cancer Council's recommendation, all the children should now be wearing hats at morning tea, lunch and for any outdoor activities. Please ensure your child has a hat.

Growing together

Parent Education.
Now online.

We are most pleased to inform you that our scheduled parent education events will now be accessible alternatively online.

Though this is a vast leap from how we are used to connecting, we are very grateful our presenters are willing to be adaptable. We hope this will provide some sustenance to family life and an alternative avenue for sharing our task.

The upshot is, that in this way we are no longer limited by numbers, so we hope more of you can join us! Please also feel free to share with your own communities, family or friends—as we can also resume the program being accessible to the broader public.

Please register with me via email and you will be sent a link.

Thank you for your patience as we all find new ways to be together apart. If you have any suggestions or requests for Parent Ed next term, please email me and I am open to seeing what we can provide and make possible.

Warmest,

Spring Festival

New beginnings &
changing seasons.

Our Spring Festival took place on Tuesday, 22 September and nothing made us more aware of the changes in our school because of Covid-19 than organising this special event.

We endeavoured to create a festival equally special for the children as in other years, while at every moment feeling the gaping hole left by the fact that parents couldn’t be there and that we couldn’t sing together.

It was certainly a test of our creativity, but thanks to the collaborative efforts of everyone involved, the festival was a true celebration!

We pulled together a bush band from among the staff, replaced group singing with a few individuals from each class singing into microphones (spaced appropriate distances apart!), received wonderful contributions from each class and had thoughtful compeering from Class 6 interwoven through the program. There was even a surprise appearance from Lady Spring!

Spring into Books

Donate a Library Book

Every Spring Festival since 1991, Kamaroi families have been donating books to add to our excellent library collection.

Each year we display a wonderful array of new books in the library, which are available for donation. A book-plate with your child's name placed in the front of the book with the year it was donated. Names of many past and present Kamaroi students are found in our library books, thus becoming part of a living history.

Although we can’t celebrate the Spring Festival together as a community this year, we still would love to give your child or family the opportunity to donate a book to the library. So we’ve come up with a different way for it to happen!

The children will have a viewing of the books available in their library sessions next week (week 8). There are always some books that become real favourites so your child may not always get the exact title—but we’ll do our best on a 'first come' basis.

Please let us know your child’s choice via the note sent home in your child’s bag, or via email: angelae@kamaroi.nsw.edu.au

Payment will be accepted by bank transfer (add your name and the word “library” in the description field), or pay in cash in a sealed envelope with your child, at the office, or added to term 4 fees.

P.S. As always your child will be the first to borrow their donated book.

With thanks in advance.

Lisa and Angela (& the Library!)
