Welcome back to Term 4. Buckle up as it's going to be a busy one.
100 Year Celebration
We are moving very quickly towards our 100th year celebration on Saturday 30th of October. This is a significant milestone in the school's history and we look forward to sharing the day with our wonderful community, old scholars and staff.
We have an absolutely amazing organising committee who have done an unbelievable amount of work behind the scenes to make this event happen. We welcome any support you can offer.
This coming Sunday we have a working bee commencing at 9:00am. We are aiming to spruce up the school in preparation for the big day. We would love to see as many people there as possible.
Parent Perspective Survey
Thank you to our school community for taking part in our parent perspective survey, organised and distributed by the Department for Education.
Most of the feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, however we had a couple of themes emerge which we shall work on during 2022.
The first is reducing the number of communication channels we currently use. We will be working with our parent community and staff on this matter over the upcoming term to streamline our processes.
The second theme was about feedback on learning for your children. Whilst we acknowledge that COVID has had an impact on parents coming on to school grounds and meeting with teachers to discuss learning, it is an area that we will strive to improve moving forward.
Again, thank you for your participation and we look forward to continue working with our community.
We are about to commence the class placement process for 2022. To help us with this, if you have any placement considerations, which does not include asking for specific teachers, please email Mel Worden Melanie.Worden673@schools.sa.edu.au with class placement in the subject box.
I would also like to announce that Corey Mudie from Glenelg Primary School has accepted the Position of Assistant Principal for 2022-2025. Corey will work with our Junior Primary Team with a focus on whole school literacy development. Corey comes to us with a wealth of experience in previous positions and will be a valuable fit for our school.
Have a wonderful Term 4 and we look forward to celebrating a terrific end to the year.
