To mark the end of the mourning period for the late Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare, the school watched a short reflection at today’s assembly, prepared by the year 9/10 class. Students also had the opportunity to mark their respects by placing a flower at a memorial to the Grand Chief, prepared by Mrs Moning and Mrs Tukata. As there is a public holiday to mark the end on the nationwide period of mourning, there will be no school tomorrow, Friday the 12th March.
On the 22nd and 23rd of April, officers from the QLD Department of Education, Education Improvement Branch (EIB) will conduct a virtual review of LIS. This process involves interviews with teachers, parents, students and community members. Myself, Ms Langusch and Mr. Collins will also present to the reviewers our pedagogical framework and other curriculum documents. A variety of parents, teachers and students will also be asked to complete and online survey in preparation for the review. If any parent / carer is interested in participating in the survey, please contact me.
