A WORD FROM THE PRINCIPAL

 

CURRICULUM DAY – Thursday 19th July

 

Our next Curriculum Day is Thursday 19th July. The staff will be working with a consultant to further develop our planning, processes and pedagogical approaches to match the new building spaces in which we are working.  Please note this is a Student Free Day.


2019 PREP ENROLMENTS

Ms French and I have conducted many tours for prospective 2019 Preps. The tours have been very positive with a lot of interest in our beautiful new school and our teaching approach. On the Tuesday of Education Week we opened up the school in the evening and had many new parents attend. They were treated to an informative session about our school and the programs we offer.

  

If you have a sibling of children currently attending Seaford Park, please enrol your child as soon as possible. Enrolment Forms are available at the office.

 

OPEN NIGHT

It was a dark Thursday night; the school was packed with people looking over the new school building. It was Open Night at Seaford Park Primary School. The choir sang many songs to start the evening. The choir sounded terrific. Each learning space showcased many displays about the units of study – in the Junior Wing were the Koorie displays, in the Middle Wing were the Past and Present displays showcasing a lot of photos of past students and school photos and in the Senior Wing was the Early Australian / Gold Theme. Many parents were impressed with the new building and surprised at how big the spaces were. It was a fun night.

  

REPORTS AND PARENT TEACHER INTERVIEWS

On the last Monday of this term, your child/ren will receive their Semester 1 Report. The reports will be in a slightly different format with list of achievements against the expected Victorian Curriculum level. Our teachers know your child’s academic achievements through a vast array of data gathering and observations, and they know a great deal about your child’s learning style, interests and personalities through taking a genuine interest in your child as an individual.

 

We look forward to talking with you about your child’s progress at the Parent Teacher Interviews on Wednesday 27th or Thursday 28th June. The notices were sent home this week, please return your time preferences ASAP and you will receive your allocated time from your child’s teacher.

 

LOST CLOTHES

As the weather has turned considerably cooler over these winter months there have been a lot of jumpers left on the oval or in the playground that the teachers constantly pick up and try to return them to their ‘owners’ if the clothes are clearly labelled. Teachers often do a label check in their classrooms to return jumpers to the child but this can be difficult if the jumpers are not labelled or the label has faded. Please check your child has their correct jumper, if it not please return to the school, and that it is labelled clearly, so it has a chance to be returned.

 

TERM 2 HOLIDAYS

Term 2 finishes on Friday 29th June at 2.30pm. I wish you all a happy and safe holiday and I’ll see you all refreshed and ready for Term 3 on Monday 16th July.
