Rosebank Public School: April 2015


Teaching and Learning at Rosebank aligns with three strategic directions, developed through community consultation: Holistic Learning, Inclu- sion, and Connectedness.

As part of our commitment to Inclusion, we are strengthening relationships with our local Indig- enous community. In recent weeks, Rosebank students participated in a very special Welcome to Country led by Robert Corowa. Robert, a local Bundjalung man gifted us with a beautiful smoking ceremony, some didge and some important words to draw us all together. After the ceremony, badges were presented to our new School Captains, Bridie Black and Gabe Halligan, and our Peer Support Leader, Dash Meredith. Year Sixes then proudly shared the sourdough buns they had baked them- selves with the help of Sai’s Dad, Sri.



Rosebank Public School March 2015


What an exciting beginning to the year. Not only have we faced down Cyclone Marcia, staying open to welcome a small band of hardy students, we enjoyed a wonderful Parent Information Evening, complete with Sausage Sizzle, and First North Swimming Carnival.

Classroom news: Years K/1/2 students in our Wadjahbin Class (Dingoes) have especially loved our new Buddy Reading program. Each Friday afternoon, following Assembly, our students are allocated an older reading buddy who reads to and with them. So much fun!



Upper Coopers Creek Public School


We welcome our new Kindergarten students Lily & Malaki and all our existing students and families for another inspiring year at Upper Coopers Creek. We wish our new students a long and happy stay at Upper Coopers Creek School.

As Term one draws to an end our new students have settled in to life at big school and have engaged in fitness activities in the mornings organised by our year 6 students. At lunch time the Year 6 students have also spent their time organising games such as sack races and ball games which all students have enjoyed.
