Term 2 - Welcome Back
After Assembly you will be invited to stay and partner your child in the dance, then we will all come back to the classroom where the students will have a prepared Learning Journey for you. This gives them the opportunity to explain some of their learning to you and you will be able to give your feedback to them. We should be finished around 10am.

Notes from information meeting
Tuesday, 19 February 2019 @9:13PM
It was so nice to see everyone at the meeting this afternoon, thank you for coming.
We started with a welcome and thankyou for assisting the children into their new routines and having their school supplies ready so promptly.
The large pencil case is used as a reading folder and is the main physical contact between home and school, that the children may be responsible for. In here your child’s reading folder, sight word folder and maths problem will be put each week plus any notes to go home. Therefore the children need to bring this folder to and from school each day.
I will keep you up to date with our Talk 4 Writing progress, the current author study and what is happening in the classroom via connect.
Each day has a special activity, Monday is Phys.Ed. with Mr Walsh and the children may wear their house shirts on this day.
Tuesday they go to the computer lab. Wednesday it is technology, Thursday-music with Mrs Starkey and Friday is library day.
General whole school business was discussed including the behaviour policy. House cards are used for positive behaviour in the playground and restorative questioning for helping behaviour back on track.
It is appreciated when families pay their school fees as these are used for numerous sundry items through out the year including the sport ribbons for the carnival.
It was noted the school has a dress code and how smart the children look, especially when attending excursions.
Attention was given to the alternative lunch ideas board that had been in the wet area for the last two weeks. It is now outside the Pre-Primary if you are looking for ideas, though I have seen some beautifully healthy lunches from this class when I have been on duty.
It was stressed how important it is to notify the office if there are any medical or health issues that will affect your child whilst at school. Either long or short term, please see Ms Wyatt or Ms Coen in they will assist you. All medications are administered and recorded through the office and it is important to keep health plans up to date.
- Handouts were given for parent/teacher interviews. Please make an appointment as soon as possible.
- To inform you of the Protective Behaviours program we will be doing
- The computer use contract
- Typing Tournament logons
- Parent code of behaviour
If you have a question at anytime about anything in the classroom please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Thank you for your time today, I look forward to working with each of you towards your child’s education this year.
