The Year 7s have been working on some specific activities around SERVICE as they begin their roles as Senior Leaders in our school.

The past two weeks we have been taking on some tasks around the school where we can serve the school in small but important ways. For example; sorting sporting equipment for each class and SPLOSHC, scrubbing toys in the ELC, re-shelving library books, organising the maths cupboards, helping Pastor Ben get ready for Sunday, counting and accounting for chapel offering money to name a few of our tasks. After completing the tasks students reflected on the activity to consider what service was done, who was served and how it helped our school community.

It was interesting to hear how tasks of helping others can be quite mundane, even boring, yet when it helps others the task itself is almost forgotten when we learn and know that others are benefitted through our actions.

Many students reflected that when given a task they felt annoyed or a bit 'whingy' but once they were in the task and when it was done, they felt satisfaction and knew it was worthwhile and others were appreciative.

I thought the whole class took on every task very graciously and did their best to complete the task to the best of their ability. I am grateful to each one of them for their acts of service today! : )

Last night at our Parent Evening we handed our some new SPLS car stickers for you to place on the back window of your car/s. Today we told the students about about that.

They will come home tonight and possibly ask for you to take a photo of them in front of the newly stuck sticker on your car. They might also ask you to put that photo on this post (you can do that via 'comment' ).

Join Mr B and Mrs Bird and Mr Rathjen who have already got their stickers on.

If you didn't get one last night or would like another for your second car, please come to the front office to collect (we won't be handing them out to students at this stage).

It would be awesome to see how many cars are driving around out there with our school logo on their car. Thanks in anticipation for joining in the fun and doing a little advertising for our school.

How many you can spot when you are out and about?

Thank you to all SPLS parents for turning up in such big numbers tonight for our O evening. And to teachers for sharing their plans for a successful year ahead.
A terrific way to start our year to ensure great learning opportunities for our students.

And nice to see George drop in.
