News Update:

Meet your new teacher: On Tuesday 6th December we have a whole school transition session in the afternoon.  Children will move to their new level for sessions 5 and 6.

Xmas Sing a long: : Wednesday 7th December: Times; 5.30 pm – 8.00 pm

Eltham Rotary is organising our BBQ this year. Shannon Devlin and Amy Cecil are coordinating the children for a sing a long. We will set up at the assembly area so that parents can watch the performances from various vantage spots. A raffle is being organised. Parents are encouraged to bring picnic gear, food and good cheer.  Santa will hopefully drop in and I think everyone has the opportunity to catch up with friends and mingle.   Start time is 5.30 pm

Staff Plans for 2017 are set in place:  In planning our staff structure and class structure, we arrange classes to ensure that the best possible arrangements are put in place to support student learning.  The employment of staff was completed last month. Class configurations are based on predicted numbers that may change over the vacation.  For 2017 we have 25 classes and the following staff has been allocated.

Year Foundation ~ Janine Tucker (co-ordinator) Andrea Couper, Nadia Bovalino / Alicia Scott, Rachel Hanslow Sells

Year 1 ~ Michelle Lucas (co-ordinator), Jess Rogers, Cara Grant/Lyndell Whiting and Belinda Lee

Graduation: Our Year Six Graduation Ceremony will be on Thursday 15th December at the Eltham High School.  A choreographed ‘powerpoint’ presentation will set the mood for the night.  The year six students are very excited as they will be presented with their graduating certificates.  During the night they perform some dances and then party to great music for the rest of the evening.  Parents who leave our school at the end of year will be thanked for their contribution over the period of time their children have been at Eltham North.  Looking forward to a great night.  We have children moving on to secondary school and so we say goodbye to parents who have made a substantial contribution to the school over the years.  Thank you to those families for their active involvement in ENPS over their time.
