Dear Parents and Carers
All parents should have received an envelope this afternoon containing the year group Parent Information Booklet, along with the MAI Parent report (except Kindergarten, who will receive theirs at Tuesday evening’s meeting). This report outlines your child's achievement in the individual Mathematics Interview that was conducted in the first week of term this year. We hope that you find this valuable in understanding activities at home that can further support your child's learning in Mathematics.
HOSTING FAMILY MASS - 26 FEBRUARY: Our school will once again be hosting the Music Ministry at the 5:00pm Parish Mass on Sunday night. Thank you to the children that have returned notes to help out. All families are welcome to join us in supporting the Youth and Family mass.
ASH WEDNESDAY: As a school, we will celebrate this special beginning of Lent next week. Fr Peter Wood will be leading us in our liturgy. We invite all parents, carers and visitors to join with us on Wednesday 1 March from 10:30am in the School Hall.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK: We look forward to celebrating Catholic Schools Week during Week 7 this term from Monday 6 March - Friday 10 March. We are planning a range of activities and look forward to sharing the timetable with you in the newsletter next week.
YEAR 4 BYOD WORKSHOP: Our Year 4 Teachers are offering an informal workshop opportunity for parents and children in Year 4 to show how Bring Your Own Device(BYOD) can benefit children's learning. Some of the aspects that will be covered in the workshop include:
- Working with Google Classroom and the Google Suite
- Using devices to extend learning
- Ensuring settings are appropriate for school
- Appropriate use of devices in a school setting
- Answering questions.
The workshop will be held on Monday 27 February at 3:40pm in the Year 4 classrooms. Please bring your child’s device to the workshop. Whilst this workshop is aimed towards students who are BYOD, this workshop will benefit all children and parents in Year 4.
KINDERGARTEN PARENT INFORMATION NIGHT: We would like to invite all parents of children in Kindergarten to attend the Parent Information Night, being held on Tuesday 28 February at 5:30pm - 6:15pm in the Kindergarten Classrooms. This is a great opportunity to hear all about what is happening in your child's grade and to meet some fellow parents from your child's class. This night will also include information on:
- Positive Behaviour Support
- Helping your child adjust to school
- Home reading program
- Learning Sight words
- Opportunities for volunteering at school and in class
P&F MEETING: The P&F meeting held on Monday night was such a great way to start the year for our parent/school partnership. The meeting was well attended and we all enjoyed a very casual and relaxed meeting, talking about some proposals for the use of 2017 funds. It was great to see so many parents attend and we especially welcomed our new families that were able to join us. Our next meeting in March will be the AGM and we hope that this meeting is as well attended, if not bigger, than the first meeting of the year. If anyone has ideas to enhance the parent/school partnership, please don't hesitate to contact us at school.
PBS WINNERS: Congratulations to our PBS winners for this week: Cooper Eastham (3B), Lily Lazzaro (3OK), Ava Glassie (5B) and Nixon McGoldrick (5M)
CONDOLENCES: Our thoughts and prayers are with the Judd family, on the recent passing of Susan’s father. “Doppy” will be greatly missed by Cailtin (6J) and Riley (4B).
