Dear Parents and Carers,
This week has been busy with NAPLAN for students in year 3 and 5. Remember that this is a one off test and may not represent your child’s overall achievement as it is a snap shot in time. So far the students have completed the tests in an awesome manner. I feel the use of iPads this year has helped the students completing tests online. Students have appeared to be more relaxed and focussed when doing the tests. It will be interesting to see how they go. You will receive your child’s results in due course.
Thank you to those parents who have slowed down in the carpark when collecting and dropping off your children. It is so important to follow the speed limit signs in the school as you would not want your child to be hit by a car.
I have seen several students without their seatbelt on before parents drive off after school as well as more than one child in the front seat, which is illegal and children under 10 sitting in the front, which too is illegal. Your child’s safety is all our concern and you need to ensure you are doing the right thing. Please take care when driving with your children in the car.
This term and next, will see many year 11, 12 and pre-service teachers in our school. I am constantly receiving requests from universities and secondary schools to place their students here as our reputation is outstanding, due to the wonderful staff, students and parents we have in our Rawlinson Family. Please say hello to them and make them feel welcome. It is great for these students to be mentored by staff with excellent teaching skills.
