What a wonderful start it has been for all students. New friendships have been created with the transition to new grades and classes. Thank you to the parents that have assisted already in events happening around the school. St Agnes' is such a lovely community and we couldn't do everything without you. We look forward to many events together throughout the year.
TEACHER AND PARENT INFORMATION: This year, we have decided to leave the choice of beginning school event to the individual grades. As a result, we have three different ways to gather across the K-6 community. This will include Parent Information Sessions, Social Gathering and Meet and Greets (5 mins).
The Parent Information Nights - These will be held in your child's classroom:
Kindergarten - Monday 5 March 5:30pm - 6:15pm
Year4 - Monday 5 March 4:30 - 5:15pm,
Year 6 - Monday 5 March 5:30pm - 6:15pm
Social Teacher/Parent Gathering - This will be held in your child's classroom.
Year 3 - Wednesday 28 February 5:45pm - 6:30pm
Teacher/Parent Meet and Greets - These will be held in your child's classroom and provide an opportunity for you to have a quick chat about things you would like the teacher to know about your child. Please note that this will be an online booking process and further information and booking codes will be sent home next week.
Year 5 - Monday 5 March Year 1 - Wednesday 7 March Year 2 - Thursday 8 March
P&F MEETING: Our first P&F Meeting for 2018 will be held in the school staff room from 5:45pm on Monday 19 February (next week). Please join us in planning some great events for 2018 and also finding out more information about the school. Please note that the AGM will be held in March.
P&F WELCOME PICNIC: We are looking forward to a great night next Friday from 5:30pm for the P&F Welcome Picnic. I am sure that the children will love playing on the jumping castle and families will enjoy an opportunity to gather together socially.
CSO TRANSITION PROJECT: In 2018, St Agnes' has been selected by the Lismore Catholic Schools Office to participate in a transition project involving our school and St Joseph's Regional College. This project has a focus on the English KLA and will address the academic transition for the students. This is a great opportunity to strengthen our partnership and work together to support student learning needs. We would like to thank the CSO for their funding support of this project. As a very experienced Stage Three teacher, Mrs Colleen McQueen will be leading the project for St Agnes'. We look forward to hearing more about it throughout the year.
FR D 'A LIFE LESS ORDINARY' VIEWING NIGHT: It was great to gather as a Parish community for the presentation of the lovely video tribute to Fr Donnelly last night at MacKillop in their Creative and Performing Arts Centre. This film was such a wonderful celebration of the great achievements that Fr D has made as part of the Port Macquarie community. It showcased how Parish initatives have gone on to support all members of our town.
STAFF NEWS - 5N JOB SHARE TEACHER: We are very excited to announce that Mrs Elizabeth Carberry has been appointed to the job share teaching position with Mrs Cynthia Nosworthy. Elizabeth and her family moved to Port Macquarie in 2017 and has been employed casually in the region. Prior to this, Elizabeth worked in the Bathurst region. Elizabeth will be working each Monday all day and then half days on Tuesday - Friday, whilst Cynthia is completing EMU Intervention. We look forward to welcoming Elizabeth to our community.
VERIFICATION FORMS: In the next week or so all students will receive a student verification form. It is very important that the school is notified of any changes to student information. This includes changes to parent contact details, address, emergency contacts and most importantly medical information. Thank you in anticipation of your attention to this process.
