To The School Community,
In my first Blog Post I would like to extend a warm welcome to the 2019 school year.
The staff were excited to see the students return after a great deal of preparation in the lead up to the first day. It is no surprise but always impresses that the students here are so responsive. Walking through the school this morning I could see reading and writing routines being developed, daily routines being set and class expectations collaboratively created with the students.
I would like to thank the students for their contribution to a wonderful first day but also to the staff for their work. Below is a reminder of the structure and teaching teams for 2019.

Attendance and Punctuality
An important focus for this year will be to improve student punctuality and attendance. we encourage students to be at school everyday unless the circumstances are unavoidable or the students are too ill. Although we accept the reality of family holidays we ask that family holidays are booked during the school holiday period where possible.
Parent/Teacher Meet and Greet
You will soon receive notification about booking a meet and greet session with your child’s teacher. The sessions will run from Wednesday 6th through to Friday 22nd of Feb. You will be able to book times via Compass. Look out for this next week.
Parent Partners are an important part of the team at our school. We are hoping to finalise who is on board by the end of next week so they can be introduced at the Family Picnic on Feb 13th.
