Following a relaxing and safe summer break, it was lovely to welcome our staff, students and parents back to St Andrews PS last week. We were all so very proud of the way the our students walked confidently into class and engaged in their new classrooms eagerly.
A big thanks to those of you who made our school yard look great for everyone's return as well. Thank you to parents that contributed to the works on our mosaic wall! It's looking great. The gardens look fantastic too. A big thanks to the Men's Shed for revitalising our school sign as well!
We were excited to welcome back our lovely staff last Wednesday, with a lovely, familiar face rejoining the team. Carla is right back in her element, joining the 2/3 class on Mondays and Tuesdays.
In other happy staff news, you may have heard that Nat and her family are excited to announce the safe delivery of Ivy Frances Stock on January 20th. Both Nat and Ivy and doing well and are looking forward to visiting us all soon.
I've attached some dates in the table below for you to pop in your diary for events and activities coming up this term. In additional to these, you will recieve a letter from your child's teacher this week that will outline any dates or days specific to each class as well as more information about Term 1.
In addition to our exciting classroom activities, Carla and I will be commencing a tutoring program over the coming month. With the intention of supporting students who didn't make the expected development last year during remote learning, we will be working with identified students a few times a week to focus on the development of specific learning areas. Parents of these children will be notified shortly.
Today we were excited to welcome a new member of the STAPS team into school. Tracey Jones is our new chaplain and will be at school every second Monday and every Friday. Tracey has 15 years experience in this role and is looking forward to getting to know you all. Parents are welcome to come in and chat with Tracey while she's here. Notices for permission for children to see Tracey will come home tomorrow.
Along with that permission form, tomorrow you will recieve a large envelope of forms for the new school year. Included in here are;
- Student Enrolment Information - This form needs to be checked over, signed, and returned for all students
- Outstanding Fees Notice. If you need to arrange for a payment plan please come in and see Michelle from Monday - Wednesday.
- OSHC Enrolment - Needs to be completed for 2021.
- Photographing, Filming and Recording notice - Please note that elements of this are currently under review and a revised notice will follow later this term.
If you do have any questions about any of the forms, please don't hesitate to call.
