Junior School Awards
Students have been receiving the Junior School Awards, which are based around the High Fives. As your child receives an award, remember to place them in the folder with the aim of collecting a full set of 5 awards. Please advise your child’s teacher when the full set is achieved. The Gold Award is then awarded for this consistent effort across all areas.

Please, Write it Down
Students are reminded regularly to report any issues that occur on the playground. The students are encouraged to ask the duty teacher, “Please can you write it down”. This is a simple referral slip that is sent to the child’s classroom teacher who is able to follow up for them, and may become aware of any ongoing patterns that need to be addressed.

Parent Teacher Interviews
This following link provides a good article with 20 suggested questions to ask at Parent Teacher Interviews - click here
The teachers are preparing already and I encourage parents also to come prepared with some questions that are relevant to you. Please be aware that interviews are only for 15 minutes. This time goes quickly and if interviews get behind in time, the impact is then felt by others who have tight schedules to follow. If the teacher seems to be rushing you out the door after 15 minutes, it is to ensure we keep everyone to their time slots.
