Term 3 has certainly flown by. It is wonderful to see the warmer weather just in time for the school holidays.
Three new students have recently joined our St Leonards community and we wish them well on their learning journey with us. Welcome to William, Charlie and Riley. From next week we also welcome Eliza, Will and James.
We regretfully have had to cancel some events and/or family participation due to the ongoing COVID restrictions. Please refer to the letters that were emailed and put on Skoolbag earlier in the week regarding this for more information. We will continue to keep families updated as new information becomes available to us. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Year 7 to High School
The following information has been provided by the Department for education regarding the Yr 7 to High School in 2022:
- The move to having Year 7 students at high school has been under development for the last three years to make sure that the transition is a smooth as possible for both primary and high schools.
- Infrastructure and staffing has been considered to cope with the enrolment demand on high schools.
- Moving Year 7 into high school brings South Australia in line with the rest of country. The Year 7 curriculum (ACARA) was designed to be taught in a high school setting.
- Public school enrolment has been steadily increasing in all primary schools and with Year 7 students moving into high school, spaces become available for other year levels.
School finishes at 2:05pm on Friday 24 September. We will see you all on Tuesday 12 October when school resumes as Monday 11 October is a Pupil Free Day (OSHC is available - please book early).
Please note that whilst sports day t-shirts/plain t-shirts were able to be worn in Term 3 in the lead up to Sports Day, regular uniform is required to be worn in Term 4. A reminder that hats must be worn in Term 4. No hat - shade play only.
We hope you enjoy a well earned school holiday break.
