HALLETT COVE SOUTH PRIMARY SCHOOL

The Hallett Cove South Primary School Community collaboratively strives to provide a relevant, challenging, excellent education for all students in its care – working together preparing for the future.

Principal’s Welcome

A school that values and recognizes the whole school community and the diversity of our students and each of their individual needs.

We strive to enable each student to achieve their personal best and to ensure that they are challenged and engaged in all parts of the learning process.

Our educational program at Hallett Cove South PS aims to challenge and excite students with an emphasis on individual skill development and to encourage life-long learning.

I look forward to the opportunity of speaking with you about this great community of learning. Please make a time to come in and meet with us, have a tour of the school, and to investigate an enriching environment for your child’s preschool to Year 6 schooling.

Introduction to Fidget Tools:

Thank you to Emilia Zygocki from the Self Regulation Unit in Department for Education, South Australia for collaborating with our school. Emilia delivered professional development for Hallett Cove South Primary School staff and explained the benefits 'Fidget tools' can have on student learning outcomes when used correctly.

We were successful with our grant application and have been fortunate to be able to supply every student in our school with a 'Fidget Tool Box' linking with The Zones of Regulation, Inc. Curriculum. We look forward to delivering explicit lessons on how to use this resource to enhance student learning and awareness around the different strategies available to assist our learners with maintaining concentration.

Shout out to local business 'That's Cute Sensory Toys' at Christies Beach, ask for Lynn or Nikki and they will be able to create these tool boxes for you.

⚽️COVE CUP WINNERS🏆

Dear Hallett Cove South Primary School Community,

It is with much delight and admiration that we announce our year 5/6 girls have been victorious yesterday in the 'Inaugural Cove Cup Soccer Challenge'.

Not only did the girls win the trophy but they did this by displaying outstanding sportsmanship and going through undefeated. This is an amazing achievement for this very enthusiastic and skilful group of girls and we hope you can join us in celebrating this achievement.

The girls will now use their increased ‘growth mindset’ and confidence taken from their win to prove collaboration can happen in learning also where they aim to kick goals back in the classroom with their classmates sharing their successful strategies and encouragement from the soccer pitch to their learning tasks!

Well done girls!

5/6 Marble Run Beach fun: 🌊

Leanrning outside the classroom is always fun, thank you to teachers Clare Ashley and Jenni Neiderer for bringing this to life yesterday with the 5/6 cohort.

Students engaged in a fun STEM challenge where they were asked to create a ‘Marble Run’ track out of natural resources they could find at the beach. The success criteria for this task highlited effective communication skills, collaboration and strategic/critical thinking.

Congratulations to Troy and Tanisha, they created the winning track which measured a successful run of 1.5 m. Even Charlie got into the action on this glorious day down at the beach!

I wonder where their learning journey will take them next?

Mentoring Partnership: 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

We are grateful to team up with Bunnings Reynella this term with our school veggie patch project running outside the blue unit. Our 3/4 and 5/6 boys had a blast yesterday planing native plants and some bush tucker which they will be committing to grow and nurture over the term.

It’s fantastic to be involved with the community growing our school name and collaborating with local businesses who support wonderful initiatives for our students to thrive outside the classroom!

Big thank you to Rob Welch from the team as the boys loved your wisdom and power of responsibility you have left them with.

Our introduction to ‘Learner Agency’

We kick started this thinking last year with our SRC’s seeking out ‘student voice’ from across the school delivering the question ‘how can we make recess and lunch time more exciting for you?’

Through collecting student responses and collating the data together, an astounding response read in favour of ‘’having access to more equipment, so we can play together’’

The SRC brainstormed ideas and ran lunchtime clubs like soccer, drawing and hip hop dancing but something was missing. We were then able to discuss with the school leadership team and come up with the idea of providing each classroom with their very own ‘sports kit’. Ultimately, this would have everyone in the yard collaborating together and utilising our awesome grounds with joy and laughter through the new sports equipment.

To add some responsibility and allow for a deeper dive in Learner Agency (outside the classroom) the SRC developed a ‘Borrowing Roster’ giving students the opportunity to be accountable for borrowing and returning the equipment they use. Each class will elect ‘sports monitors’ to keep on top of this and share this responsibility to look after the new equipment.

Today, the SRC’s were excited to spend the morning labelling and putting together the kits before going around to all of the classrooms and explaining how and why we have the new equipment, how to use it and the importance of the roster being activated at each break time.

They did a fantastic job speaking in-front of their peers displaying great leadership and ‘Learner Agency’ by leading and driving this new initiative at HCSPS.

Our next step is to use this great example inside the classroom to co-create our reading goals with our teachers and peers for Term one!

Thank you to the 2023 SRC group and good luck to everyone applying for this years vacancies. We look forward to sharing our learning journey with you all.
