Update from the Principal
Last weekend we celebrated our first Nadeen School Fun Run! – a great occasion to raise awareness for healthy living, an active lifestyle and, bring the community together in a fun way with everyone invited. It was great to see so many people attend and we are very grateful for your support. Thank you to Mr Kyle, Mr Gerry and Ms Sarah for organising the event and all of the parents, students and teachers involved. The students started and finished the run with a smile on their faces and some amazing green costumes. It certainly is an event we will arrange again in the future!
This week has been House Sports events and an opportunity for all students to be involved in competing with each other and working together as teams!
Thank you to all the teachers for their amazing support during the IPC exit points. This week we’ve seen wonderful work produced by our students, sharing their learning and excitement over a range of topics to parents coming into the school.
This week our girls played at BSB in the Primary Sports League for Netball and narrowly missed out on third place. However, one of our students claimed the player of the tournament award and we are thrilled. Congratulations to Carlotta for this wonderful achievement!
We have also opened up the school this week for Open Day and it was a real privilege and pleasure to welcome our current and new parents into the building. Our secondary school students showed groups of parents around the building to share the facilities we have, the lessons and learning we enjoy. They did a great job!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Early Years Storytime, another great event by our EY team to invite parents into our library.

At Nadeen School, having 63 nationalities enriches us as a community and we look forward to a great week ahead! A special thank you to our Nadeen Community Association for their hard work and support with the events, food, and help. It is very much appreciated!
Join us for the Family Picnic in the Park on Saturday, February 10th, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the school.

Last year it was announced that it is no longer mandatory for schools to provide Virtual Learning for students, shared by the Ministry of Education in August 2022.
The Ministry of Education has announced that the syllabus system for the coming academic year 2022/23 in all kindergartens, schools, universities, government and private educational institutions at all stages will be mandatory attendance for all students. The ministry clarified that there would be no choice for parents to attend their children to receive in-person or remotely learning, assuring its keenness to provide for all the requirements for a successful back to school.
At Nadeen School, following the announcement from the Ministry above, our provision for learning will be on site.
