A MESSAGE FROM OUR ACTING  PRINCIPAL
MRS GINAYA YARNOLD
Dear Parents,
As we move further into Term Two, teachers are busy preparing information for the student reporting period. A reminder that the online booking system is currently open and parents will need to book a timeslot with their child’s teacher. Kindergarten 2016 applications will close shortly, so don’t forget to hand your application in and remind other local families of the closing date.
P&F MEETING - PRINCIPAL CONSULTATION: A big thank you to all of the parents that attended the P&F meeting on Monday night to participate in the parent consultation process for the new Principal appointment. This forum provided an opportunity for parents to outline areas of importance for the St Agnes’ community. The meeting was very well attended and we would like to thank John McQueen (Chief Executive Officer - Parish Education - St Agnes’ Parish) for leading the discussion.
ROBOCUP ENRICHMENT EXPERIENCE: Last Friday, we had students represent St Agnes’ at the local Robocup enrichment experience. Other local schools visited St Agnes’ for the day. It was an amazing day for the children and the buzz around the school afterwards has been lovely to hear. Thank you to Kara De Maria and her team for coordinating the day.
CAMP FEES: As camp draws closer, a reminder to all families in Years 5 and 6 that an advance weekly payment can be set up to help reduce the financial stress. These payments can be any combination of $5, $10 or $25 per week/fortnight. Please see Kirrily in the Office if you would like to organise this.
WINTER UNIFORM: The changeover to Winter Uniform will happen on Wednesday, 10 June. Below we have included winter uniform information as listed in the school handbook. It may be a good time to go through the wardrobe and check that uniforms still fit and ties are easily located. Don’t forget the second hand uniform shop has some stock. If required, call into the school office to enquire about second hand uniforms.
