From the Principal

Dear Families,


Welcome back everyone to term 3. This term will again be a busy one so please:

* Keep an eye on the newsletter for information / dates etc.

* Try to keep to dates. This helps you and your child, but also others.

* Keep us informed of any changes in contact details.

* Get ready for our Trivia night and School Concert. Rehearsals for the 2019 concert begin this week. The excitement level is at a high level now!! Kai will once again guide us through the items and assist us. Welcome back to Kai.

 Continue to communicate with the school and your child’s classroom teacher.

We also welcome a number of staff to our school. Abbey Loney and

Virginnia Gilham will be taking the reins of 3PD while Peter enjoys Long Service Leave. I am sure that families will make both teachers welcome to our school. Both have worked as Relief teachers and coach in our school so the transition will be smooth. If you see the 2 new faces please say hello and welcome them to the school and the grade.

Congratulations: We were informed late in the holiday period that our Scott McCumber had been appointed to act as the Principal at Ocean Grove Primary School. This is a great opportunity for Scott so we wish him well and we are sure that he will enjoy the new challenges presented.

SENTRAL: Reminder that parent access to reports and viewing of the ‘I-can state-ments’ closes this Friday. If you have not visited the site please do so before the end of the week.

Interviews: Review of the interviews and the log on process has highlighted the need for families to notify us whenever changes are made to email details. This pre-vented access to the SENTRAL platform in the majority of incidents where families needed assistance.

Building: With the windows out the design and progress is there for viewing. The plasterers are currently hard at it placing the walls and infrastructure in place. The new windows are obviously the next piece in the puzzle, followed by painting. The current plan is to have the 4 classrooms (Stage 1) completed by August 13. This will signal another movement of classes, some into the new rooms and the relocation of the remainder of the classes to allow Stage 2 to commence.

Trivia Night: The night is fast approaching and the tables are going fast. Get your group together and get ready for a night of fun and maybe a little challenge to our memory! We have also been very fortunate to have the support of so many individu-als and businesses in order to put together a terrific range of items for the auctions which will occur on the night. Don’t be slow and miss out!!!

Details on the night appear in today’s newsletter. Many thanks to the planning team.

Planning Days: Each term staff are meeting in teams to plan the curriculum delivery for the term. This allows staff to share expertise and better plan for the year level and their particular grade. This usually occurs at the start of each term.

We are fortunate to have a group of emergency teachers who are able to step in and seamlessly continue the program for the children. These teachers have all worked many times in our school, know the routine and the children are very familiar with them.

Lost Property: A reminder that lost property is situated in the corridor through the middle door of the South Wing of our school. We try to return any item that is named to the owner but on occasions the name has been erased through washing. Please check the name is legible from time to time. Our students, like all children, discard jumpers etc when outside playing and forget to pick them up when the bell goes. We are now more conscience of not over packaging lunches and using reusa-ble containers. These are a great solution however like clothing we need these to be labelled so that the ones left outside or misplaced may be returned
