SRC Meeting 28/10/15

Chair: Trent Denning
Minutes: Emily Chybinski

Trent started the meeting at 10:12 am by recapping the previous minutes.

First topic: Trinity Gardens Visit
– The reps who visited Trinity Gardens shared their likings and experience at the school. They believe our school should build similar things for our nature play spaces, such as ponds, logs, climbing walls and a cubby house. Photos and more information from the visit can be found here.
– “We could donate branches to the school, if we find any at the park.” – Nicholas

Second topic: Word Teachers’ Day
– Trent and Erza will be going around to get a small phrase from classes about their teacher. This year, photos of every teacher will be uploaded onto the SRC blog (on the World Teachers’ Page found here). There will also be comments on the page appreciating our teachers, which we would like the reps to post.

Trent closed the meeting at 10:45 am.
