    If you are interested in trialing Smore as your online newsletter for parents let Jason or Erica know. Molly has used it this week with her class and it looked fantastic. If 2 or 3 people are interested I will arrange a site license for staff at the school for the year. Free accounts are limited to 5 flyers.

    Long Service Leave Plans for 2016

    If you are taking LSL during 2016 please make a time to see Jason so it can go onto the planner and relief can be organized.
    A reminder that teaching staff have to use leave accrued prior to 2015 by the end of 2016. Leave accrued from 2015 onward needs to be completed within 2 years of the accrual date. If you have leave owing see Jason in teh first couple of weeks to make a plan.

    Information on reducing leave liability can be found on the link below.
