Dear Parents & Community Members,
As we continue to manage our school in the current COVID climate, I thought it timely to extend my thanks and appreciation to the school community for your understanding during this period of changing restrictions since the start of term. I will continue to endeavour to provide our community with the latest guidelines as these are communicated. The Glengarry Primary School community have been outstanding in respecting these decisions, which in turn has made our collective roles far more manageable. Your continued support is appreciated.
We conclude the current NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) regime today with a number of “catch-up” assessment for children who missed on the scheduled day. My thanks to Miss Cole for her coordination and all other staff for assisting with the process. As mentioned, one of the stated advantages of online assessment is the ability to receive results in a timelier manner than before. Schools should start to see generic outcomes by the end of term, with specific reports for students distributed towards the end of next term.
Finally, thanks to all coaches and supporting community members for assisting with our interschool sports teams. I am immensely proud of our teams – the effort, attitude and teamwork has been a pleasure hear or witness. While the positive results are important, it’s the E.A.T. that matters.
