Dear Parents & Community Members,
The School Board met on Monday evening for what proved to be a highly productive meeting. Once again, I am extremely grateful for the commitment this group of people provide to our school; not just during meetings but prior to and following each gathering.
Items discussed included:
- A revised / reviewed Attendance Policy
- Information re. the proposed 1-to-1 Technology program
- School Development Day dates for 2022
As mentioned, there was discussion in relation to the proposed implementation of a 1-to-1 Technology program. Following consultation with local schools, including the Duncraig Senior High School, we have come to the realisation that our students are significantly disadvantaged when entering secondary education as compared to other primary schools that use a similar program. Despite significant resourcing directed to IT from the school’s budget, we are not able to meet the capabilities required of a Year 7 student and the current proposal alludes to Year 4 students requiring more regular access to technology. Further information will be provided within the Newsletter and subsequently via the school’s webpage and I sincerely suggest families avail themselves of this information. I thank the 1-to-1 Steering Committee for all efforts to date.
