Boneo Buzz: 7th August
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We continue to do all we can to ensure the health and safety of our school community and thank you all for your understanding and patience in supporting your child/ren from home. Increased restrictions have had us all reorganising and restructuring our lives and I appreciate the challenges that Stage 4 restrictions may have brought to your family. We are here to support you and the children over the coming six weeks. It is imperative that we must all stay at home, if we can stay at home as this is a public health crisis.
I encourage you to remain inspired, stay connected and foster good mental health habits. All families are asked to download the Smiling Minds App, a unique tool developed by psychologists and educators to help bring balance to your life. We suggest 10 minutes a day.
Take a photograph or video of any activity that you connect with and send it to us. We would love to promote this within our community.
What are you waiting for, connect today: https://www.smilingmind.com.au/
I would like to provide opportunities for parents to connect online next week to chat, ask questions or just to hangout together.
Prep to Year 2 – Monday 7pm
Year 3 and 4 – Wednesday 7pm

We are excited to announce the introduction of timely feedback to parents following your child’s reading assessment. Each term, parents can expect a Compass notification to invite you to access your child’s reading feedback.
Feedback will outline the following:
- Observation comments with the text title included
- Goals and strategies discussed with the children
We are providing prompts and questions to support you in working towards your child’s reading goals. This guide works alongside the feedback you will receive throughout the term on your child’s reading progress. They are the same prompts used during lessons, small group instruction and one-to-one reading sessions, which means a consistent approach and language for the students. With your continued support, we can ensure students are reaching their full potential in Reading.
Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions regarding this assessment. Teachers will be uploading the Parent Reading Prompts and a guide to access the assessment.
Thank you for Brightening our Day
We wish to thank the Boneo community for acknowledging our wonderful staff.
This is a very challenging situation for our school community and we are so incredibly grateful for the support and cooperation we receive from our families ♥
‘Can I start by saying you ladies and gentlemen at Boneo PS are doing an amazing job to work with families in these trying times.
We as a family are feeling so supported with weekly packs to keep our little people moving forward with their learning program.
Teachers are projecting positivity and encouragement over Zoom meetings and children are feeling inclusive and engaged.
So Thank You!’
‘Thank you for all of your work with our families & community over the past year, the consistency & comfort have been a blessing for my children’.
