Welcome to term 4; we hope you have all had a wonderful break and are feeling refreshed and raring to go this term. We would like to formally welcome Richard Kemp, our new Senior Leader, who has settled in very quickly to Reynella PS, making strong connections with children and families. Mr Paul Smith has also returned to us, working Mondays and Tuesdays in D6 and taking PE on Fridays. Ms Georgia Frangoulis will be working Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in A1 with Mrs Patterson.
Despite being the busiest term, term 4 always seems to go the fastest. Our priority is to maintain our focus on learning and we know that teachers and staff are planning many exciting opportunities that our children are able to participate in this term. End of year activities celebrating the year of learning, graduation and our End of Year concert to name a few. However, involvement in these activities is not an entitlement but a privilege and we look forward to everyone participating as they continue to follow our school agreements and make positive choices both in the classroom and the yard. All planned activities will be subject to COVID restrictions and please be aware that conditions may change at any moment. We will continue to be guided by SA Health and the Department for Education.
We have begun the very long and arduous process of class placement. Thank you to those parents who have sent in parent requests; it is important to remember that we are not considering friendship requests or requests for particular teachers. Although we will rely predominantly on teacher judgement when placing students, other information that might guide our decision is welcome.
