A warm welcome to students, parents/carers, teachers and our wider school community to the 2021 school year. A very special welcome to our new families who have joined our school this year. This newsletter has a lot of information and we understand that it is "information overload"!!! BUT...we hope it is very helpful for you for the start of the year. A reminder that this enewsletter can be translated to many different languages (scroll to the bottom and select your preferred language).
This year is also a very special year as Clapham Primary turns 60! For six decades, our school has been serving the local community. This year we are celebrating our 60th anniversary. We will be endeavouring to celebrate the 60 years where possible, and in particular we are planning to host our Quiz Night with a sixties theme. More info to come...
Do you have photos, memorabilia or stories from your time at Clapham? We would love to feature them in the newsletter throughout the year; please email firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s an exciting time at Clapham as we celebrate the school’s history while looking forward to the future. The school was officially opened in 1961 by the Minister of Education, Sir Baden Pattinson. Did you know the school was originally built to be a high school, however in 1961 Clapham Primary began.
We have had a fantastic start to the term and look forward to a busy and exciting term. It is lovely to see the bright, happy and eager faces each day and hear about their many adventures during the school holidays. Students have enjoyed connecting with friends, meeting their new teacher and developing school routines and agreements to set up a successful year of learning. Please see newsletter article re Staff Update for further information about classroom teachers and support workers.
