Principal's Message | January 2018

Welcome back and a Happy New Year to all of our students and families. We hope that everyone had a restful and re-energizing break and is returning ready for more enriching learning experiences to undertake for the next part of the school year.

December highlights

  • Teachers appreciated meeting with parents at the end of December to discuss their child’s achievement and plan for the next steps in their learning.
  • The Kindergarten family evening celebration in early December was a great success. Parents enjoyed meeting other families, sharing excellent desserts and watching their children perform their winter songs.
  • The very generous donations to Toy Mountain in money and in presents brought in by students and parents were very much appreciated. In total, 99 presents were delivered to Toy Mountain on December 19th. A photo of the gifts is included in the pages of this Newsletter. Thank you very much for your contribution to making Christmas morning a cheerful time for children whom otherwise would not have had anything to open.
  • The Book Fair, the Bake Sale and the Purdy’s Chocolate fundraiser were all very successful. Details about these events will be shared at our next School Council meeting next week.
