Primary Update

Welcome to a new school year

Welcome back

I hope everyone is enjoying the last week of the holiday break. A special welcome to the new staff who have joined us. We look forward to introducing everyone on the first day of school.

The Upper Primary Area is now complete and the wall between Kevin and Terry's room has also been removed. It will be exciting to see how the creation of some new spaces and new flexible furniture will support the learning programme. This is the beginning phase of piloting some new practices and thinking about personalising learning for students. Watch this space!

8.30am start on Monday in the Theatre for all teaching staff and EAs.
You will receive an agenda of the two days via email shortly.

Sad News

Many staff will know John Ten Berge who was in Martin's class last year. Over the holidays Johnny's mother passed away. Caroline had been ill for some time and sadly passed way on 5 July. Both Martin and Matt have been very supportive of the family ....Jonny (joining 4DMI), Jozef (Dad) and Danni (who will join 1NON this year). Sad times for the family. Please keep them in your thoughts.


Congratulations to Matt who completed his Masters in Educational Leadership and Change over the holidays. A great achievement Matt.

Staffing changes

Unfortunately Sarah McGill who was going to join 3CTA as an EA will not be joining us as her husband was required to relocate for work over the summer break. Troy Clement will be in 3CTA for the first few weeks while we find a replacement.

Enjoy the week back. It will be great to see everyone.
