As we begin December staff are working hard planning for the celebrations that normally take place at this time of the year. In 2020 these will look different to any other year. Unfortunately we will not be able to have large numbers of community present at these events. We will hold or annual Presentation Day, Kindergarten Graduation and Year 6 Farewell and try our best to provide a window into these events for those who can't attend. We want to acknowledge the wonderful community support and understanding of the challenges school staff have encountered this year. It would be much simpler to run things as normal.
Our last P&C meeting is tonight and we can hold it at school with a maximum of 20 people. I would like to acknowledge the hard working P&C Executive who have navigated the changing landscape of running a P&C effectively over Zoom. While at times I have forgotten to select the right settings (meaning no one could connect) a quick phone call resolved these issues and they have managed to keep things going. There have been few opportunities for fundraising but somehow they have found a way and they have been well supported by community.
Parent Teacher Interviews were held over Zoom successfully and we had the majority of parents connected with their child's teacher. Semester 2 Reports are well underway and will be available on the Sentral Parent Portal on Wednesday and sent home with students on Friday. This semester we will print reports, however from next year we are hoping to publish reports though the Portal unless you advise us you want a printed report.
If you have not yet connected with the Parent Portal please contact the school for further information.
