Junior School - Term 1, Week 1, 2019

The new school year has started well, with the students beginning to settle into their classes. It takes a little while for routines to be developed and the teachers will be working with their classes to establish a positive learning environment. This is a lovely time as the teachers and students get to know one another. If you need to speak to a teacher about any specific information about your child, I would like to encourage this and feel free to act sooner rather than later.

Parent Information Evening – Monday 11 February, 7pm
At this evening there will be two sessions. The first will be held in the Performing Arts Centre, where I will introduce staff and speak about the programs and developments across Junior School for 2019. Following this, parents are invited to visit their child’s classroom and hear from the teacher about class specific information. This is an important evening for parents to learn about the Junior School culture and events.

New Families
We have many new students starting this year. I would like to extend a welcome to all of our new families. A special morning tea for the new students to meet the Junior School teachers will be held on Wednesday 13 February, invitations will be sent out soon.

Building Works
Over the break the passive area was resurfaced, the new Year 4 classrooms fitted out and work was carried out in the Junior School office. This work will continue as some final touches are still needed.

Head of Junior School
