PARENT AND STUDENT REMINDERS

Thank-you for taking the time to log on and find this page.

I look forward to meeting with you at the Parent Child Chats and working together with you this year!

We (teachers & children) would really love to see some parent comments on our blog from time to time. Feel free to comment on any of the activities as the term progresses.

Daily Reading & Diaries

It is expected that Grade 5’s and 6’s ready daily for 30 minutes at home. Students record the title of the book they read and ask their parents to initial each night. Please support your child to have this requirement fulfilled and develop their love of literature.

Student diaries can be used as communication between teachers and parents. Please feel free to write to the teachers with any queries. This also includes absent notes.
