Dear Parents,

Welcome to Term Two 2024!

Miss Bri Rutter will be teaching Year One full-time for the year. Sheena Bloxham will be the full-time Educational Assistant; Shaylee Annear will be in Year One on Monday and Tuesday; and Marlene Smit will continue to be in Year One but on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

HOMEWORK

In Year One, the children will be sent home with a reader to read every night; homework in their homework book to be completed every week; and when your child’s name is drawn out at random, they will take home our Travelling Ted for the weekend.

ABSENTEES

Parents are required to inform the school if their child is going to be absent on or before the day of absence. This is to be in the form of a written note, electronic note through the School App or website, or email to the classroom teacher. Alternatively, a phone call to the front office on the morning of the day of absence. Parents of students who have an unexplained absence will be rung by the Office staff to ensure that parents know the whereabouts of their child. On returning to school, parents should provide a written/electronic note or email explaining the absence and clearly stating the date/s that the child missed school.

SPECIALIST SUBJECTS

On Tuesday Year One will have their library lessons. Please ensure your child has a suitable library bag. Year One will have STEM with Meka McCormack on Tuesday, followed by Physical Education taught by Mr Antonio Muto. Music class will be on Monday with Miss Meka McCormack, followed by Languages with Mrs Adele Maartens. They will have Drama on Thursdays with Meka.
