The Sir Henry Parkes Memorial PS Weekly Staff Memo

Term 1 Week 5

Thank you to all teachers for last week's Meet the Teacher afternoon and PLP meetings. I managed to sit in on a few. It was great to see so much organisation and thought going into presentations.

A few niggly reminders for staff..

  • Please remember to sign in and out when you leave school grounds - even if for 10 mins. It is imperative that we know where ALL staff are during the day, in case of emergencies and evacs.
  • The only time teachers should really be sitting at desks is for SENTRAL registering. Teachers/SLSOs/Staff should not be checking or responding to emails during class time - or taking personal calls on mobiles. Class time is for teaching and supporting our kids

I have attached a reading and will continue to do so fortnightly. Please take time to read them - we may use some at staff meetings.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
