Looking forward to 2019 – PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING
We love our new way of strengthening our home-school partnership.
We start this off with a “Learning Transition Partnership Day” which will be Friday 1 February
On this day we will be having 15 minute slots with each student and family in their homeroom class:
· This time slot is about informing the 2019 teacher of anything they will need to know about your child, socially, wellbeing, learning difficulties, or special talents and skills they may have
· We will learn about your child’s and family’s strengths and ideas you may have to contribute to learning opportunities at school.
Our teachers will be focussed on each family, listening and planning for a successful 2019.
We encourage all families to attend, even if you or your child knows their 2019 teacher. Our feedback from 2018 has highlighted that this is a fantastic opportunity to have a positive transition into our new school year.. We look forward to seeing you.
