The year 8 and 10 National examinations are rapidly approaching. The school has been working hard to ensure that all students are well prepared. We ask that parents and carers partner with the school in encouraging all students to stay focused. Screen time and use of mobile phones is one distraction in the leadup to the National Exams. I challenge all parents to severely limit or remove use of screen time and mobiles during the weeks leading up to the exams.
Attendance at school is very important. Children need to be at school on time every day to succeed in their learning. We have seen some unnecessary absenteeism and lateness, particularly in the high school. If a child is absent, parents / carers need to email the class teacher or send a note on return to the school.
Saturday the 26th August is gazetted as a public holiday. We will confirm if there is to be a holiday on the Friday or Monday in lieu of this.
This year the school will celebrate Independence Day on the last day of school for term 3 – September 14. There will be some special activities to celebrate the day. Please see the program below.
This term’s School Council meeting will be on Thursday, the 17th August.
