Welcome back to the 2015 school year! On behalf of our school community I would like to extend a warm welcome to families who are new to our school. It was great to see the excitement on the faces of students this morning as they begun their new school year. For me, now beginning my sixth year at the school, I was impressed by the number of students wearing uniform and the way that they presented themselves today.
This year is going to be challenging and exciting for us a school as we will take some big steps forward in a number of projects we have been working on for a number of years. The Children's Centre construction is due to begin this term and I am hoping that we are not too far off with our wetland project. Our staff is working through how these projects will potentially effect learning programmes and are putting plans in place to minimise disruptions.
We are continuing our work with Point Pearce Aboriginal School and the Children's Centre on plans to strengthen and develop links between the sites and how this could work operationally. The MAS Governing Council will be taking a lead role in this throughout year and we will work together on processes to ensure that strong consultation takes place within our community regarding this initiative.
Meet the teacher
Next Tuesday is our annual "Meet The Teacher" Evening. I would like to encourage all parents to attend if possible and if not possible to make contact with your students teacher to make a time to do so. At this evening teachers will be outlining how the class will operate, activities planned for the year and expectations regarding homework and communication with home.
