Welcome to the final term of 2021, with now only seven weeks to go until the end of the academic year, this term will definitely fly by especially with all the activities, excursions and special events that are being organised by staff.
We recognise that for 75 of our learners this is their final term at Dernancourt School, which for many is a time of mixed emotions. The excitement of what is next with the blend of sadness as friends move into different locations. We hope that you and your families continue to make lots of positive memories in your last few weeks with us.
These Year 6 and Year 7 groups are currently working with their teachers and leadership on how to have a COVID safe graduation ceremony. Our Year 6s are particularly excited as they are the very first group of this year level to graduate and as such can create “new” traditions, ways of thinking and celebrating. We are all looking forward to sharing details about the events as they get closer.
If your child is in R-5 and leaving we ask that you please notify us via our eForm on the Skoolbag app. As this is the list we then use to create our farewell PowerPoint that is shared at our final 2021 assembly, please ensure that even if you have called the office or communicated your intention via a classroom communication that you also submit this form.
