Guest Post by Mrs Morris

Dear 4KJ and 4LB (4KM),

How are you all? I hope you are all enjoying your time with Miss Jordan and Mr Bao.

Your grade four year is quickly coming to an end. I bet you can’t believe you’ll be in grade five in a couple of months time!

I am enjoying my new role as a stay-at-home mum, however, I do miss all the students and teachers at Leopold Primary School.

Novalie was three months old yesterday. She is growing up quickly and changing all the time.

Novalie has learnt many new skills such as:

  • reaching for her toys
  • putting her hands in her mouth
  • rolling from her tummy to her back
  • holding her head and neck up strongly
  • smiling, and making lots of different noises and squeals

She enjoys doing many things such as:

  • going for walks in her pram
  • shaking her rattle
  • attending Rhyme Time at the library
  • kicking her legs in her bouncy chair
  • listening to stories and looking at books

It sounds like you’ve been doing some exciting things at school. You were lucky to have your wonderful student teachers back for a few weeks.

The topics you’ve been learning about in Inquiry, Maths and Literacy sound really interesting. I’d love to hear more about them.

I hope you’ll be able to leave a comment and tell me what I’m missing at school!

Your former teacher,

Mrs Morris

Leave Mrs Morris a comment and tell her what you’ve been learning about and what has been happening at Leopold Primary School.

Congratulations, Mrs Morris!

After teaching at Leopold Primary School for nine and a half years, Mrs Morris began maternity leave a few weeks ago to prepare for the birth of her first child.

We had a farewell party for Mrs Morris at the end of last term. Since then, everyone in 4KJ and 4LB (formerly 4KM) has been waiting eagerly for the baby news.

Mrs Morris and Nate’s baby girl finally arrived during the week! On Wednesday 7th August at 2.10pm they welcomed little


into the world!

Her full name is Novalie Alexandra Morris. When she was born she weighed 4130 grams (9lb 2) and was 53cm long.

Mrs Morris and Nate are delighted with their precious daughter and they are enjoying getting to know their little girl.

Miss Jordan visited Mrs Morris in hospital and loved meeting Novalie for the first time. She is a beautiful baby!
