Thank you to the families who have informed us via our Skoolbag app that their child is not continuing their learning at Dernancourt in 2022. This information plays an important part in our class construction and placement processes. We use the names provided via our Skoolbag app to construct our "leaving students" power-point shown at our final assembly. We ask that you please ensure that this method of communication has been used.
Based on the information we have, we anticipate that we will have 315 learners with us in 2022. This will be 12 mainstream classes. Staff have invested a great deal of time, thought and consideration into class placements, with parent communication and feedback closing in week 1 of Term 4, changes and adjustments are unable to be accommodated.
In 2022 we will have four R/1 classes, a Year 2 class, two 2/3 classes a Year 3, two 4/5 classes and two 5/6 classes. We will also continue to have two Special Classes R-2 and 3-6.
We are currently working with the Department for Education HR to ensure that we have the correct student to teacher ratios and continue to provide high quality teaching and learning programs. Not all of our contract positions have been announced yet, so End of Year Reports will state your child's 2022 Year level and class number only. We hope that we can share teacher names soon.
