Primary Update

7th September

Staff BBQ

I would like to acknowledge everyone who helped organise the Staff BBQ on Friday evening. Thank you for a great night.

It was lovely to see so many primary staff and their families attend. I certainly hope everyone who came had a wonderful time enjoying the delicious food, cold drinks, great company and beautiful beach.

Stay tuned for more photos of the evening in next weeks SMORE.

What makes a good reader and writer?

Over the next couple of weeks I'll be trying to gather recorded samples from across the school of students talking about what they think makes a great reader and writer. This will include recording some of the Burke’s Reading and Writing interviews featured in the SMORE a couple of weeks ago.

If you are happy for one of two of your students to spend 10-15 minutes doing the interviews then please send me an email with the child's name.



Parent / Teacher Interviews

September 23rd and 24th

This week the Parent / Teacher bookings will go live to parents on Gateway. An email will be sent to parents early in the week to inform them on how to book.

If you have any queries, please contact Tom in the primary office.

I will send information to teachers, regarding the organisation for the evening, on Monday or Tuesday this week. Everyone has had the 5:00pm to 5:30pm time slot blocked out on the Wednesday evening to allow for dinner, which will be provided.
