Banksmeadow PS Staff Bulletin

Term 1 Week 2 1st-5th February 2016


I hope everyone has settled back in to school and is ready for their first full week.

I would like to say a very big thank you to Roxanne, Annie, Brendan, Liz and Carol, who stayed at school til very late on Friday afternoon/evening to complete the timetable and playground duty roster. Timetabling is an enormous job and takes careful consideration and lots of attempts to make it workable for everyone.

A couple of reminders:

- if you haven't yet sent me through your milestones for the School Plan, can you please do so by this Tuesday afternoon. I will need to put these together and will look at the schedules for each to eliminate any clashes. Can you also please begin to think about the types of evidence that we may be able to collect so as to show how we are going to document our progress and achievements. You don't need to worry too much about the evidence at this stage but if you have a bit of an idea of what we could collect that would be great.

- parent newsletters will be sent out each Friday afternoon, so if you have something to include could you please send it to me by the Thursday afternoon.

- meetings will begin this week, although we will not have a TPL meeting on Tuesday afternoon due to the Swimming Carnival
