Viva La France


This term to highlight the coming Paris Olympics, Blackwell is looking at our French Connections.

We will be exploring France, the culture, the cuisine, the tourist attractions and a little of their rich history.

With my maiden name 'le Clercq" I can identify with some of the countries higlights. I have loved travelling a few times around France but my favourite city remains Paris.

Our Peer Support program to be introduced this term has a French flavour with games, art and some basic language activities.

Julie, in the canteen, is also offering a special French menu each Friday.

We hope all our student will enjoy these experiences.

Term 2 and we welcome Mr Steve Trist as our local Aboriginal consultant. Steve will be here each Thursday working to bring Darug culture to our students. Warami Steve!

Our term calendar also appears quite full with excursions, sport, dance and enviromental events all taking place.

Please follow us on Facebook each week where we update weekly happenings for the school and our closed Stage pages.

Our staff will also by busy writing student reports ready for the end of the Semester. Our reports have been updated to reflect the new Literacy and Numeracy Curriculum introduced across all stages in 2024.

Stage supervisors will add some additional comments to their Facebook pages to highlight some of the focus content being undertaken in classrooms.

Parent interview at the end of term will provide an opportunity for all to come together and discuss academic and social achievements.

Once again I invite all parents to join our monthly P&C meetings held each first Monday from 7-8pm in the staffroom. The P&C is a great opportunity to meet other community members and share in the educational journey at Blackwell.

Merci beaucoup!


Kind Regards
