Semester One Reports and Parent Teacher Interviews

Next Friday, June 21st, reports will be sent home. These reports will include written comments by your child’s teacher which were not in the December reports due to industrial action. The reports will provide you with a detailed description of how your child is progressing at school.

On Tuesday 25th June and Thursday 27th June, we are holding our Parent Teacher Interviews. The Tuesday interviews go from 3.30 to 5.00pm and the Thursday interviews are from 1.00pm to 7.30pm with no classes that day due to the interviews. Please ensure you have made alternate care arrangements for your children on Thursday June 27th. Families have already received a notice about the interviews and how to book them online. I encourage all families to make an appointment to attend the interviews so that together with the written report, they get an extremely accurate picture of how your child/children are progressing at school. If you are having any difficulties booking please see the office.

EMA (Education Maintenance Allowance)

Parents that are eligible for 2nd Instalment of EMA and did not receive the 1st instalment of EMA, applications close 2nd August. Health Card or Pension Card must be eligible from 15th July 2013. Please obtain an application form from the office. DO NOT re-apply if you have received the 1st Instalment of EMA.

Families that have unallocated EMA will automatically have it allocated to school excursions and camps, unless parents notify the school office otherwise. Parents will receive a note on the permission form if the activity is fully or partially covered by EMA.

Collecting Children at Lunchtime for Appointments

If you need to collect your child at lunchtime, please call the office before you come to school so we can have your child ready for you. If the children go outside it is difficult to find them and this can cause you to be delayed in getting to your appointment. Recess is 11.00-11.30am and lunchtime is 1.35-2.20pm. If possible please collect your child outside of these times.
