Parent/Teacher Interviews Wednesday 21 & Thursday 22 March 2018

A key aspect of the reporting programme is through personalised interviews. This will provide an excellent opportunity for parents and carers to discuss their child’s progress with their child’s teacher.

A booking sheet has been sent home with your child.

Please take the time to book a time to meet with your child’s classroom teacher to discuss their progress.

Survey – School Improvement March 2018

Parents: Help us Make a Difference at our School!

As part of our school improvement journey we would love to hear your opinions and feedback on a range of topics including

  • communication between school staff and parents,
  • homework
  • how well you feel we support your child’s learning and behaviour
  • bullying

Your feedback helps to inform decisions in a variety of areas, including continuing school improvement planning, communication practices with families, school safety and student/family engagement.  Through tools such as this TTFM survey we are able to involve families as partners for learning at our school. This is very important to us. Student and school success relies heavily on family support. The results from this survey will help us in our daily programming and long term planning.

Your opinions and responses are important to us and will be used to make our school an even better place!

The survey is open now and will remain open until the 23rd March 2018. 

If you need any help or would prefer a paper copy please ask at the Office.

All responses are anonymous and overall results will be made available.

Simply click on the Parent Survey link which will take you to our very own school survey.

 

 

 

 

School Chaplain

2016 Chaplaincy updateA reminder that the School Chaplaincy service continues to be available at the school.  Our Chaplain Mr Bill Rankin is at the school on Monday and Thursday. Mr Rankin can be contacted through the school office.

The purpose of the Chaplaincy service is to;

*   provide pastoral care and support for staff, students and families,

*   facilitate pastoral support programmes and resources such as;

  • the RAINBOWS  small group 12 week program dealing with ‘grief and loss’ issues.  RAINBOWS provides children with an opportunity to express their feelings in a safe and confidential setting.  Grief is a normal human reaction to a significant loss.  Frequently children do not express their grief verbally, so it often surfaces in their behaviours, schoolwork, as a physical ailment or it affects their emotional development.
  • the BUZ (Build Up Zone) Together, is an 8 week – in class resilience, feelings and bully proofing program specifically designed for Year 4 students.  The purpose of the program is to engage the children in collective learning, focusing on the benefits of social skills training and integrating those skills as part of their everyday life.

*   Linking schools with the local community, support agencies and organisations.

*   to conduct One on One formal and informal conversations with staff, students and parents or other support people where an opportunity is provided to talk about the issues that matter to you.

Parking Reminder

Parents are reminded that the staff car park is not to be used for picking up and dropping off students as it is a relatively confined area and the movement of vehicles presents a major risk in the busy times before and after school.
