Dear Parents and Carers,
I couldn’t be happier with the restart of the Foundation to Year Two students yesterday. The outdoor drop off points seemed to work well and once the 9:00am bell rang all students were inside and settled beautifully. Well done everyone! We will continue to review our processes over the next week and this will support us to welcome our year three to six students on 9 June.
Outside School Hours Care
With the start of face to face teaching I am happy to report that our before and after school care service is open. Please confirm your booking with Vicki prior to sending your child by emailing Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important that we know who is attending to maintain the correct child to educator ratios.
2021 Enrolment teleconference tours
In these strange times we’re having to adapt a lot of processes and our 2021 enrolment tours are no exception. I will be running school tours via teleconferencing as of next week until the end of term two. If you are aware of prospective parents in the local area, please let them know about this opportunity. The tours are a chance to chat privately with me and ask any questions. I will share a presentation highlighting the key features of our education program, the facilities and our beautiful grounds. Tours can be booked in by calling the front office on 03 5426 1518 or emailing email@example.com.
Year Six – Year Seven Transition Forms
Year six parents should have received their year six to seven transition form in the mail recently. Can all parents of a year six student please ensure they return these forms to the front office by Friday 29 May. It is important that we receive these forms for all students, regardless of whether the secondary school they are attending is government or non-government.
It’s with sadness that I report that we have had a higher than usual amount of damage to the school on the weekends recently. Unfortunately we have had a streak of these nuisance events over the last four weekends. Our neighbours have reported young people, possibly teenagers, running on the roof at all hours of the day and in the middle of the night. There was also a report of someone on the roof with a bike. We have had damage such as two broken security lights, broken picnic benches, damaged sky lights, damage to the maze in Middle Gully and smashed bottles and litter left scattered around the basketball court. We have reported the higher levels of activity to the Department of Education and the police. We’re seeking your support in keeping our school safe. If you see or hear anything please report it to the police and the school by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
