Welcome to 2019!
It is wonderful to welcome back our returning students and see everyone so refreshed after the summer break.I would like to extend an extra special welcome to our new Kinder and OC parents and our families that have transitioned from other schools this year.2019 promises to be a very full and exciting year with plenty of academic and sporting opportunities and challenges for our students.it is a time to look ahead to the new year and discover what it is we expect from ourselves and our students and in collaboration with our parents, forge a meaningful relationship which encourages our children to try hard and do their best. In the coming days, a School Community Charter will be forwarded to all families via CareMonkey. This charter outlines the responsibilities of parents, carers, educators and school staff in NSW public schools to ensure our learning environments are collaborative, supportive and cohesive.
For our new families, CareMonkey is our online platform for many forms of communication including excursion permission notes, sporting activities and other information that families will need throughout the year. Once our new enrolments are finalised, you will receive an email inviting you to register your child on the CareMonkey site. I encourage you to do this in a timely manner to ensure you do not miss out on any school information.
Our students in Years 1 to 6 have been assigned to their classrooms for the year. Walking around today, it has been wonderful to see the children attentive and engaged in the classrooms. Our new Kindergarten children will undergo their Best Start assessments in the coming weeks and will then be assigned to their classes. What a wonderful group of Kinders we have this year. It’s great to see them happy in their classrooms and playing with their new friends and buddies at break times.
