Week 3 – Term 1

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


Public Holiday


Please note that Friday Week 4, the 24th February is a gazetted public holiday – National Remembrance Day of late Sir Michael Somare.


Screen Time / Social Media


It has come to the school’s attention that some students are members of various social media groups. While recognising the positive influence such groups can have, parents and carers are reminded to monitor closely children’s use of social media. Reports of inappropriate posts and language in such groups can reflect negatively on the individuals involved.


Parents and Wantoks


The Parents and Wantoks first meeting for the election of the new executive will be on Tuesday the 21st February at 6pm. The Parents and Wantoks Committee add a great deal of value to our school and this is a fantastic opportunity for families to become involved in contributing to school events throughout the year.


Nominations are now being received for positions of President, Vice-president, Secretary, Treasurer, Canteen coordinator, Book Club coordinator and Fundraising coordinator. Please complete nominations at the office.


All parents, community members and others who are interested to join the P&W are encouraged to attend.


Parent / Carer Contacts


We would like all parents to ensure that they have current and up to date contact details for the school. Please see Lorna in the office if you need to update your details – especially email addresses. If parents hear of other parents not receiving school communication, please direct them to contact the principal.


School Council


The annual General Meeting of the School Council will be held on Thursday, the 2nd of March 2023. At this meeting, voting for 1 vacant position for a Parent Representative will occur, in the Yr 9/10 room from 6.00pm– 6.20pm. Nomination forms are available from the school office and must be returned to the school office by Thursday the 24th February 2023. If you would like to know more about the functions of the School Council, please make an appointment to see the principal.
