Governing Council have approved the 2022 Materials and Services Charge be set at $370.00 for Reception to Year 6. Invoices will be sent out to families at the beginning of next year.
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend last night’s Christmas Concert. It was great to see so many families at school and enjoying the opportunity to socialise. All classes did a fantastic job of presenting their item. Over several weeks, with the great support of their teachers and under the guidance of our Performing Arts teacher Elena Sourbis, they have worked hard to prepare and it is always terrific to see the enjoyment they get from performing in front of family and friends. Despite our endeavours to provide an inclusive event for the entire community, we acknowledge that there were some difficulties with the booking system for tickets; I would like to thank families for their patience in working through this process. I would also like to acknowledge the efforts of the canteen staff and volunteers for providing catering on the night and our upper primary comperes who helped lead each concert and entertained the audience with some Christmas themed humour.
As this will be our last main newsletter for the term, please be aware of the following information:
2022 Class Arrangements
Next Monday all students will have the opportunity to visit their new class and meet their teacher for next year. On the day students will be provided with a letter to take home which will indicate their placement. As mentioned previously, every effort has been made to ensure each class has a balanced profile (gender, academic achievement, friendships). We acknowledge that children will respond differently to this change and we ask that you support your child through this experience and frame it in a positive way.
End of Year Reports
Your child’s end of year report, which details their achievement against the Australian Curriculum will be made available (online) next Wednesday 8 December. Please contact the school if you have not received the login information to access the online portal. If you have any queries about the information provided in your child’s report, please contact their class teacher.
Next year we will be looking for new members to join the school’s Governing Council. Governing Council have a very important role in representing the parent community to help inform and monitor the directions of the school. The group meets twice every term (after hours, normally from 6.30pm). If you are interested in joining the Governing Council please consider nominating.
End of term assembly and dismissal

A whole school assembly will be held at approximately 1.10pm, please be aware that only parents/carers of children who are being presented with an award will be permitted to attend as an audience member (the school will notify you next week if your child will either be getting an award or be acknowledged for receiving a graduation award).
