After another busy term I would like to wish all our families a safe and restful Semester one holiday. I know that most of our parents and caregivers appreciate the change of pace during holidays as there is a break from the flurry of making lunches, checking homework and all the day to day aspects of getting children ready for school each morning.
However, if you could still find time on occasions to read with your children and encourage them to read age appropriate books, it would benefit them greatly.
Reports will be posted out and emailed to parents and caregivers early next week.
Please discuss the report with your child and encourage them for progress. There may also be other areas where they need to improve – particularly in the comments or effort rating. Strong partnerships between home and school are so important in a student’s educational journey. If you have anything you need to discuss about your child’s report, please make an appointment with his/her class teacher so we can strengthen this partnership.
I am sure that all those who attended the Parent Pipeline sessions have been empowered to help their children in reading and spelling. As a school we are making opportunities to meet your needs in terms of areas you are keen to know more about. Please support these sessions in Term 3.
Finally, we had another wonderful Grandparents’ Day this week. This event is such a beautiful time when children can honour their grandparents and build that sense of “family” and “community” which is so important in their young lives. Grandparents’ Day will be the feature article in the first newsletter of Term 3.
Have a wonderful holiday and drive safely, particularly if you are travelling during the break.
