I hope you have all managed to clean up after the recent storm and your properties have not sustained too much damage. We had a few trees down and our boundary fence on the northern side of the school blew down. Most of this has been made safe or is booked in to be fixed in the coming weeks.
Our teachers are putting the final touches on the Semester One reports this week, and they will be distributed next Thursday, the 24th of June.
The report format has changed slightly this semester. Where in the past your child’s report would contain a lengthy written comment, we are representing this same information with several statements that break down the skills taught in English and Mathematics. Your child’s proficiency in these skills will be indicated with a five-point scale checkbox as well as an overall mark which is represented by the dots most parents will know from previous reports. Teachers have continued to include a written comment on your child personal and social development.
We have planned our parent teacher meetings for next term in the week beginning 9th to the 13th of August. This will be another opportunity to discuss your child’s progress at school. If you require additional time to meet your child’s teacher please reach out to them in person or via email, the staff email addresses can be found here. Details about the parent teacher meetings will be provided in term three.
We have decided to postpone the winter solstice event scheduled for this Friday night until Friday the 23rd of July. The uncertainty of the COVID restrictions have made it difficult to plan and as it currently stands, we are not able to run the event due to the restrictions.
We have set up a QR code for the school. If you are coming into the school building to sign your children in late or out early, or to meet with teachers, we ask you to use this QR code. If you are visiting the school for an extended time, for example to help at Middle Gully or in the classrooms, we ask you to sign in using the visitors book.
