Week 5

Dear Year 4/5

My sincere apologies for not posting last week.
Previously I said that I would report back to you about our visit to Brisneyland.  Ms Brook, Ms Johnstone, Mrs Mead and I met with teachers from other QLD schools of Distance Education.  Mrs Wynberg was also in Brisvegas representing our P&C with the Schools of Distance Education Alliance (SODEA) to advocate for you. 
Terrific discussions were held with people in change of ICT and the new senior schooling curriculum.  All of us gained an insight into the new process for senior secondary education.  We also put forward some key points regarding access to our ICT systems.  Clarification has also been sought for the Skymaster satellite broadband program and the services it may offer you.
The only unfortunate event involved one of our Heads of Department getting hung up at the petrol bowser.  I would like to hose down speculation by saying that these new fan-dangled contraptions are something that Ms Brook needs to get a handle on!
On the weekend just passed I back was back in Bristopia for the Global school Conference.  More on that next week.
I look forward to seeing those of you who can make it to our Annual Camp week.
My best regards are extended to Year 3, 5 and year 7, 9 students completing NAPLAN .
