The 2020 School Year commences on Wednesday 29th January. Please ensure that your children wear their formal uniforms (Year 1 – 6 only) for the first day back. Emails will be sent out in the New Year with updates regarding uniform days, so keep a watch out for these.
The school office will be closed from Monday 9th December until Wednesday the 7th January inclusive, if you have any questions you are welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org and Peta will endeavour to reply in early January, but she does need a holiday first…
When school ends, teachers and parents are happy for students to have a break from the school routines, lunches, homework etc. It is a time to refresh and enjoy a slower pace. Teachers also want students to avoid what is known as the ‘summer slide’. This can happen when children lose some of their academic skills and leaning dispositions that they have gained over the year. Children should continue to have opportunities to acquire new skills and practice existing ones. While children should enjoy a carefree time and unwind, we can engage them in many potential learning opportunities.
When the new school year begins, your children will be ready with skills they have retained from the previous year and hopefully some brand new ones.
