Term 1 Week 2 - Thursday 9 February 2023
Parent Information Evening
There was a great turn out at the Parent Information Sessions last night and it was also great to see a huge crowd at the Reporting & Numeracy Session run by CEWA. It is very important that parents have a clear understanding of the reporting process and opportunities given to students to demonstrate their understanding.
I would like to thank our classroom teachers for putting the parent presentations together to ensure we are all on the same page. The parent/ teacher relationship is extremely important in ensuring that positive outcomes for our students are maintained.
The Welcome Back to School P&F Sundowner for all families will be on Friday February 17. The P&F Sundowner is on the new grassed area beginning at 5.30pm. It promises to be a great way for our families to get together and start the new school year. So get your picnic rugs ready for what will be a great evening.

To ensure your child’s well-being, the school requires that parents provide up-to-date medical information in regard to any allergies or medical conditions.
If your child is allergic to bee stings, nuts, shellfish, eggs etc and may suffer an allergic reaction, it is paramount that the school is informed. Your doctor will need to provide an anaphylaxis plan with instructions that the school will follow.
If your child suffers from asthma, a plan is also required for staff to follow in the event of an asthma attack. Anaphylaxis plans and asthma plans are to be presented to the office with medication to ensure that in an event of a medical incident, your child can be treated effectively.
Any other medical information that may be relevant must also be presented in written form to the office. This information will remain confidential within the staff-teaching environment.
