I am excited to announce that our Grade Six Leaders have designed a brand new assembly that will be launched next Wednesday 22 July at 2:40pm.
Our leaders expressed to me early in Term 2 that they would like to revamp our assembly and provide a host of awards that celebrate our students' fantastic achievements. To say I was in support of this was a huge understatement. I enthusiastically agreed to their initiative and asked them to have a new assembly designed by the commencement of Term 3. Our leaders met many times to design the new assembly and to decide on the achievements that we wished to celebrate. When they presented their ideas to me late in Term 2, I was blown away by their creative and thoughtful ideas.
One of the most exciting aspects of this process was the creation of our very own Templestowe Park Primary School oath. Mrs Twyford was recruited to write the oath, as she is quite the poet. Our school oath outlines how we want to act at Templestowe Park and it contains references to all of our RRIPO values.
Templestowe Park School Oath
Templestowe Park is a great place to be
In pride and respect is what we believe.
Optimism means we’ll have a good day
If we work together in a positive way.
We will act with integrity
Being honest and fair in our community.
We all have a responsibility
To be THE BEST THAT WE CAN BE!

A huge thank you to Mrs Twyford for writing such an amazing school oath!
To celebrate the fantastic achievements of our students the following awards will be presented at each assembly.
RRIPO Role Model Award: Classroom and specialist teachers will select one of their students for this award. The student will be selected for exhibiting one of the RRIPO values. They will be called on stage at assembly and presented with a special RRIPO Role Model ribbon. This award will be published on the school website on the Friday proceeding assembly so family and friends can be present to see them receive the award.

Principals’ Award: Mr Roberts and Mr Cleary will select a student who has provided their best effort in any aspect of school life. We encourage all of our students to be the best that they can be and this award symbolises the focus of always striving to achieve.
House Points: A long-standing tradition at Templestowe Park. The students accumulate house points each week and the team with the most points are awarded the house points cup.
School Pride Award: Our school captains, Blake and Britt, are the judges of this award. They will observe all year levels over a two-week period and identify who is best exhibiting our school value of Pride. This includes the pride they take in their learning, school uniform, classroom appearance and the wider school in general.
Golden Rubbish Bin Award: Our playground has been split into four different sections and each house has been assigned an area. It is the responsibility of students in each house to keep their section nice and clean. The teachers will judge this award and the winning house will receive the prestigious Golden Rubbish Bin trophy. At the end of the school year the results will be calculated and a special prize will go to the winning house.
As you can see our assembly will be a wonderful celebration of everything our students achieve at Tempy Park. I invite you all to attend assembly next Wednesday and to book a permanent space in your calendar so you can be a part of our celebration.
