Welcome to the Week 3 wrap up.
This week has seen our Year 3, 5 and 7 students complete their NAPLAN testing for 2021. Our learners completed the testing with great confidence and should be commended for their efforts. For parents and your caregivers, please recognise that this is one test and is a snapshot of their learning on that particular day. As a school we use this data to set our future directions and to validate some of the initiatives we have been working on over the past two years. We look forward to sharing the results with you when the time comes.
High School Transition
Starting high school is a big and exciting step for any student. For our current Year 6s, it will also be historic, as they will be part of the first class to begin Year 7 in South Australia’s public high schools in 2022.
The Department for Education website provides information and advice on the Year 7 to high school move for families, students and school staff. Visit education.sa.gov.au and click on the ‘Year 7 to High School’ icon on the website’s home page, or search education.sa.gov.au/7toHS.
Registrations of interest are open for families to apply for their Year 6 or 7 child to start secondary school in 2022.
Registrations will close Friday 21 May 2021. Families will receive an enrolment offer from their allocated secondary school by Friday 13 August 2021.
National Volunteer Week in Week 4
At Leonards Primary School we have 110 registered volunteers with more going through the process. Our volunteers help out with school sport, classroom programs, governing council, children's university and canteen, just to mention a few.
We would like to invite all registered volunteers to a special assembly Friday afternoon at 2:30pm. Our volunteers should have received an email with the invitation attached. We hope to see you there and we thank you for all you do for us.
