Term 3 is over! And we have now kicked off the Spring holidays and our 3 day camp. Our enrolments have been good with two classes in the first week and one in the second week.
Little tradies continued to build on a successful term 2. With 24 enrolments across 5 classes in term 2 we more than doubled this to 52 enrolments across 6 classes; suffice to say we are very pleased to see the belief from 90% of Term 2 enrolments return for Term 3, and the growth of more than 100% in new enrolments – thank you!
Some exciting opportunities have come up through term 3, which is encouraging for the future of Little Tradies.
1/ A big thank you to all of you who voted for Little Tradies in the North Shore Local Business Awards. It’s been a humbling experience to feel the support and positive feedback from parents and children and getting to the finals is a reflection of this. We will continue to make Little Tradies the unique environment we want it to be, so your children are enabled to learn and develop their life skills, self-confidence and friendships. The awards night is on November 6, 2019 and we can only hope that the judges see in Little Tradies what you already have.
2/ We were contacted by Channel 7 to do a story for Sydney Weekender. The good news is that it has been programmed to be televised on 13th October, 2019 at 5:30pm! It was a fun experience for all the kids and Instructor Steve did an awesome job at putting his “Hollywood hat” on and playing to the cameras. I’ll let you know when the airing date is confirmed!
Term 3 has seen the introduction of some electrical concepts. The children were shown the early steps to understanding electricity and how it can be made; potentially some of it was a little beyond their comprehension but as we know children are like sponges, so we expect they will recall some of it as we go further into it.
We also covered off “simple” and “complex” machine – anyone remember what these are? No?! You can find out more in the Term 3 wrap.
That’s it from me, I hope you continue on reading the other sections of the newsletter to learn what else your children have been doing in term 3.
Thank you again for your continued support and feedback!
