Staff Memo Exeter Primary School

Tuesday 16 May

Term 2

Hello everyone,

NAPLAN is done for another year! Thank you to Amy for all her organisation and support with NAPLAN it has certainly ensured everything has run smoothly. Thank you to classroom teachers for your attention to detail and thorough preparation of students in the lead up to NAPLAN. Results will be out in August so we are hoping to see some school improvement then.

This week SWSP begins so the next 2 weeks are going to be quite disrupted for Grades 3, 4 & 5. Many thanks to Helen for working with the timetable in an effort to accommodate everyone's needs - this is a very difficult task and not always easy to accomplish.

Staff Fund Accounts

Still a few outstanding funds to be paid. Please do so ASAP.

Staff Car Park

The staff car park is becoming a real safety risk to children as an increasing number of parents are using this area for school pick ups. We will be closing the entrance each afternoon about 2.30 which will cause problems for those staff member who are leaving straight after school. If you are one of those people who will be affected can you please discuss with Alison or Sheryl.

SWSP - Swimming and Water Safety Program

Please check the altered specialist Timetable and Duty roster on the whiteboard in the staffroom as there have been some changes for the next 2 weeks.

Swimming Caps

In Grade 3, 4 and 5 teachers’ pigeon holes are swimming caps in readiness for the Swimming and Water Safety Programme, there is a list with them with the houses that the students are in, can you distribute the correct colour to relevant child, that way they can be used for our swimming carnival later on in the year.

These need to be named with a permanent pen.

Morning Duty

Please remind students the climbing equipment is out of bounds before school for safety reasons, as we do not have staff who are able to stay and ensure their safety. If children are playing on equipment please sit them on the seats until the bell rings.
