From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to Term 3. We are hoping for a boring term with no major events!

Camp

Unfortunately, with the extension of Phase 4 Covid roadmap, we have had to make a difficult decision regarding camp. We are going to cancel camp for this year. We cannot place students in dormitories and use shared toilet facilities under Phase 4. The possible date for Phase 5 has now been pushed back again, with the likely hood of further extensions. The plan is to hold camp next year when things are hopefully back to normal. We will offer camp for both the yr 5’s and 6’s next year so that no one misses out. I am sorry to have to make this decision but we must make some changes in this unusual year that we are having.

Parents who have already started paying can get a refund or have the funds allocated on their account for future events eg: swimming.  Could you please email the office  to advise if you would like a refund or credit applied to your account.  

New Playground Equipment

With significant funding from the P&C, we have upgraded the playground equipment at the front of the school. This complicated process was managed by Mrs Kidd and it is exceeding expectations. A big thank you to everyone for supporting the school through fundraising events. The money is always well used and appreciated, but sometimes it’s great to be able to see the outcome. We are looking at having an official opening this term.

Parent Funded BYOD Program 2021

Next year the school will be changing from a parent funded laptop macbook device, to a parent funded IPad. This change will be rolled out to the new yr 4’s and will not impact upon this year’s 4, 5 and 6 students. This change has been heavily considered and is now possible due to the ipads new operating system.

All the information that parents will require will be sent to parents of this year’s year 3 students via Connect – please keep an eye out.  Information is also available by clicking here.

Staff changes

This term we welcome Mrs Jacqui Needham who is working with Ms Thomas in Room 11/12 and Mr Miraz Islam who is working on Tuesdays as the ICT Coordinator.

2021 numbers

We are already starting to look at some class structures for 2021. It would be much appreciated if any families that know that they will definitely be leaving us for any reason, please @ so we can better plan for 2021 and beyond.

Thanking You

Clive Emby
