Things look a little different at Erina Heights Public School.
Over the past few months, the school has welcomed a series of upgrade works, but with the wider school community unable to see the results due to Covid restrictions, Principal, Natalie MacDonald, has given some insight into what work has been done.
“Due to ongoing restrictions and not being able to welcome parents into our school like we usually would, I thought it would be nice to showcase some of our classroom upgrades,” MacDonald said.
“They include: new painting, wall carpet for displaying student work, new flexible furniture, new vinyl, new sinks and splashback, updated technology including smartboards and laptops in classrooms and new air conditioning units.
“In addition to these upgrades, there has also been a significant investment in purchasing classroom resources to support teaching and learning across K-6.
“Maths resources have been purchased for every classroom, PM readers to support all classes K-2 and sets of quality texts to ensure the teaching of English is highly engaging.
“These new resources have already had a significant impact on teaching and learning across the school,” MacDonald said.
Other improvement works actioned this year include the installation of new stage curtains for the school hall and landscaping of the school’s back field.
And there’s more changes to come with MacDonald confirming the school has settled on a new logo design with new uniform designs soon to follow.
The new logo was finalised after a series of community surveys and will be formally launched along with the new upgraded uniform later this year.
“The designs for our new uniform upgrade are well underway and these will be shared with the community next week to seek input into the final design of our new uniform,” MacDonald said.
The uniform upgrade is also being informed through a series of community surveys, with feedback to be conveyed to the school’s uniform supplier.
