Busy Monday

We had a windy morning today and I had to drag some branches off the road before I got to school.

Ultranet skullduggery 
Today we received this email from the Secretary of the Department of Education:

Many of you would have seen today’s report in The Age that the Independent Broad-based

Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) is conducting an investigation into activities by former and current staff in our Department.

 As the investigation is ongoing I cannot provide you with further information at this stage. I can however assure you that the Department is cooperating fully and proactively with IBAC. 

According to the story in The Age ( click on the link to read it in full) some past and present DEECD employees have allegedly received free-travel , some nice little perks and jobs once they'd left DEECD from the company that won the $180 million Ultranet contract.

Mmmmm stay tuned.

The grade 4s have nearly finished their peaches.

The grade 6s completed Y Charts for King Solomon's Mines. Tomorrow we'll complete story maps and then get to work seriously on our adventure journals.
