This morning will be the first full day for our new Kindys and I expect there will be some very tired small people by the end of the week.
With a further three kindergarten classes starting this year, the overall student growth experienced in recent years has continued. The school now has a total of 14 classes and an overall population of 346 students. This is the largest the school has been since it opened and will see us using a demountable classroom for a Year 1 group.
While the demountable building is expected in the next few weeks the new furniture arrived last Friday and Mr Enright’s Yr 1 used it to eagerly set up the Art room as a temporary classroom.
Staff and Classes:
With the additional new class we have welcomed Mr Graham Enright to our staff. Some of you may remember Mr Enright from last year when he relieved in some classes as a casual teacher. Mr Enright comes from Sydney and we look forward to his involvement in both the Broulee community as well as our school.
The following is a list of classes and staff for 2016. The name of each class group will reflect the year level followed by the first letter of each teacher's surname, eg Mrs Frost's Year 2 class will be 2F.

Please remember that all children need to wear their green hat while outside playing in the sun. If they forget their hat they are restricted to playing under the shady areas of the school playground and will not be allowed onto the main playground. The hats must have the broad brim which is why we encourage the school hat. Please ensure that all your child's uniform is labelled with their name but especially their hat. We end up with MANY hats in the "lost property" box, most of which have no names and are in new condition.
In the coming days and weeks you will get many notes sent home with your child. These notes will also be posted on the school app and pushed out to parents. If you don't have the school app I would urge you to download it as it will save you a great deal of time looking in the bottom of school bags for missing information. If you're not sure how to download the app, please don't hesitate to contact the school and we will happily assist you.
