Day for Daniel - Thank you
Thank you for supporting 'Day for Daniel' by wearing red and bringing gold coin donations. As a school we raised $267.80 which will go towards the 'Day for Daniel' fund so we can continue to support them with providing schools with valuable resources in educating students on keeping safe.
Casual Clothes Day - Thank you for supporting Bush Fire Appeals
We also want to thank you again for the gold coin donations on casual clothes day which will be going towards the NSW and QLD bush fire appeals. We raised an amazing $422.
Pupil Free Day (Friday the 29th November)
Whilst pupil free days provide some down time (or family fun time) for students, the same can’t be said for teachers. On Friday the 29th of November we will be having our Annual School Improvement Process day. On this day, we will review what has happened this year in terms of student achievement and well-being to plan for 2020. It is the final part to a process that takes place throughout term 4. As a school we pride ourselves on continuous improvement and dedicating a day to improving what we do, I believe it has been crucial for our improvement in academic results.
OSHC is available for families who need it. Please ensure you have made a booking so OSHC can organise correct staff to student ratios.
Reports/ Class Placement/ Teacher Notification/s 2020
Reports will come home on Thursday, Week 9. Accompanying the report will be notification of your child’s class in 2020. In our final newsletter in week 9 we will officially introduce new, welcome back, thank and farewell existing staff.
Assembly (this week)
At this week's assembly WALKATHON prizes will be drawn (JP and M/UP most raised and Rebel Sport Voucher winners). We also have more times table award winners and representatives from Woolworths visiting to present our 'Earn and Learn' goodies. It would be great to see as many families as possible there.
In our last school assembly for the year in Week 9 we will farewell our Year 6 students moving to middle schooling and our graduating Year 7's.
We have been looking at student numbers and class structures for 2020. As we are zoned and have a significant increase in parents wishing to enrol their children here, it would help our planning if you could notify the school or front office of any changes for next year (if you are moving etc.).
From 2022, all Year 7 students will be attending high school. We will continue to have Year 7's up until this time and are confident in the quality of program we offer. We are aware that some secondary schools are offering Year 7 placements now and understand that if as a family your high school of choice is offering a placement you may want to transition your child. If this is the case, can you please let us know as it also supports us with planning.
Also, if you know of any families considering enrolling at Virginia for next year, could you please let them know to contact us as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help.
