Dernancourt School R-7 Newsletter

30th January 2020


Welcome to 2020

Welcome to the 2020 school year at Dernancourt School R-7.

We extend a warm welcome to the new families joining us, and are excited to be continuing our learning journey with our returning families.

After having the time to ‘recharge’ staff returned to work last week and started planning  a range of engaging learning experiences. Some of the things we have to look forward to this term include R-5 Swimming,  6/7 Student Leaders Day and Sports Day. It’s no wonder our students have settled into the year so smoothly and are  keen to continue their learning journey in their new classes. We invite you to like and follow the Dernancourt School R-7 Facebook Page and download our Dernancourt School Skoolbag app to ensure that you don't miss any information and are able to join us where possible.

It was great to see so many families at our welcome back assembly then  meet some  parents at the morning tea on Tuesday morning, we hope to meet  more of our families at our Acquaintance Evening on Tuesday, February 11th. Details of this are below. For catering purposes please reply via our Skoolbag app how many sausages or veggie burgers your family needs  by Thursday, February 6th.
