A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
MRS GINAYA YARNOLD
Dear Parents and Carers
I look forward to a great Golf Day on Sunday. A huge thank you to the P&F Golf Committee for all of their hard work in preparation for the day. Over the past two days, I have had the opportunity to have many diocesan discussions around school improvement and managing wellbeing. These professional learning experiences allow for great networking conversations and a chance to hear about some of the exciting things happening in our diocesan schools, along with sharing some of our great achievements.
LOCKDOWN DISCUSSION: Once again, I would like to acknowledge and congratulate all staff for the calm and professional manner in which they conducted themselves during the lockdown. During this week, I have had an opportunity to complete debriefing discussions with the children regarding the events of Thursday last week. This was a great chance to clarify many of the children's misunderstandings about what was happening. The children had some great questions and I was able to answer them to help them further understand the situation. As outlined in the app alert and letter sent via email, there will be an opportunity for parents to provide feedback to the school regarding this policy and procedure. This will take place at the end of the next P&F Meeting scheduled for 20 June. Like all school policies, this policy is available on our school Moodle page. We welcome all parents to this meeting to assist with your understanding of school processes.
NATIONAL SORRY DAY: This day was celebrated as a nation on Thursday 26 May. This day is a very significant day for Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and particularly for Stolen Generation survivors. We ask that our families reflect and discuss this day with their children.
SACRAMENT REGISTRATION NIGHT: Thank you to the staff and families that attended the Sacrament Registration Evening on Wednesday night. I would also like to thank Mr Tony Watts, Principal at St Peter's Primary, who was representing the three primary leaders as we travelled to Yamba for the Principals Conference.
SEMESTER ONE INTERVIEWS: A reminder that the online booking system is currently open and parents will need to book a time slot with their child's teacher. If you don't have access to the Internet, please phone the school office on 6583 7433 and we will help you make an interview time. Thank you to those parents who have already booked appointments. Please note that the online booking system will close on 17 June 2016. To book an interview please visit: https://www.schoolinterviews.com.au/ and use code muc6y for all grades excluding Year 6. The Year 6 code is 29x78.
WINTER UNIFORM: The changeover to Winter Uniform will happen on Tuesday, 14 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.
