Letter from the Principal

Tuesday June 16th 2020

Dear Families

St John the Baptist Staff wish to say a very big thankyou to all the families in our community who so generously presented each of us with a peace lily and thankyou video. We do what we do because we love what we do. Teaching and growing the hearts and minds of young people is one of the best jobs in the world. Your gratitude is humbling for us all and so greatly appreciated. Thanks for caring for our staff. 

Parent/Teacher Interviews

Thanks to all the families who have booked a Parent/Teacher Interview via SOBS, our online booking system, using the following URL.
We would appreciate all families booking an interview time. It is vital for positive learning outcomes for your child that we have strong communication between home and school regarding their achievement as learners. It will be a great conversation this year with parents having great insight into their children as learners given the remote learning that has taken place. Reports will come home to families on Friday 19th June. Our mid year reports will be modified this year due to remote learning. A letter explaining the changes will be included with your child’s school report. The end of year report (December) will provide a more comprehensive view of the year’s learning across all usual curriculum areas.

If you are having difficulties booking an interview via the above link, please click below for instructions. 

Unwell Staff or Students

Our staff are aware that if they are unwell they need to remain at home. We also ask that families keep any children who are feeling unwell or presenting with cold or flu like symptoms at home. Please seek medical advice to get clearance for your child to return to school. 

End of Term 2

Term 2 concludes on Friday 26th June at 2.30pm.  School will resume for Term 3 on Monday 13th July at 8.50am.
