H20 - Our Performance
I'm sure you have all heard that we will be having our school performance in late September. Each class will be performing an item based on the theme of "water". We have tried to keep costume costs to a minimum, but if your child's teacher does request something that you cannot provide, please don't hesitate to discuss with either myself or the class teacher. While each item will be short, we do want all of our students and their families to enjoy both the process of learning something new and different as well as enjoying the excitement of actually performing.
Matinee Performance: 10 September
Evening Peformances: 10 & 11 September
Congratulations to our new budding writers who have been busy posting stories and poems on their class Writer's Blog. If you have a moment please take some time to read these stories and make a comment. Congratulations to all of our busy authors - you have some wonderful work here and also to Mrs Hounsell and Mrs Morgan for your support and encouragement. Personalised Learning and Support Tool (PLASST) 2013 Trial
During the next few weeks our school, along with other public schools in the area, will be participating in the trial of a new tool (PLASST) being developed by the Department of Education and Communities for teachers to identify the learning and support needs of their students.
This trial is focussed on the development of a sound and reliable online tool that, when finalised, can be used by teachers in collaboration with parents and carers to identify the strengths and educational needs of students with additional learning and support needs. This information will assist schools in planning and personalising learning and support for individual students who require adjustments in their day to day learning.
The trial will involve teachers completing an online questionnaire about the educational needs of some of their students. Students themselves will not be required to complete any additional work or be formally assessed as part of the trial. This trial will not impact on students’ education provisions.
Further information about the PLASST trial, including the collection and use of data in the trial, will be provided by the school in a letter to parents and carers.
If you have any questions about the PLASST trial, would like to discuss your child’s involvement or would prefer that your child does not participate, please telephone the school on 44 716 120
