News update

Principal’s Report. 

Mid Year Reports for parents:

The student report process is complete. The preparation of these commenced over a month ago and teachers have used data from ongoing learning tasks and formal assessments to prepare reports. You have access to your child’s reports on Compass. Your child’s attendance has been recorded. The school aims for a 95% attendance rate for every child. In reality for the half year we hope that children have less than 5 days of non-attendance. Research proves that frequent absence has a negative impact on a child’s learning and social development.  

Parent, Student & Teacher (PST) Conferences:  PST conferences were conducted on Tuesday for all students. We appreciate parents demonstrating their partnership with the school, through attendance at these meetings.  The meetings provide an important link between what your child is learning and how well they are learning and planning for improvement.

Winter Inter-School Sport:  The competition played against local schools is complete.  Children played Korfball, Soccer, Football, Netball and Bat tennis.  All children who participated had a wonderful opportunity to test their skills and learn valuable ball and team membership skills.  There were lots of wonderful achievements and efforts displayed by our children. Congratulations to Sarah van Nieukerk and the level 4 staff for their great organisation and efforts.

Disco Evening:  Congratulations to the children on their excellent behaviour at the disco.  It was a well organised event. Thank you to the many PFA reps for their assistance and preparation.
