A reminder that Father’s Day is just around the corner, Sunday the 3rd of September. Our annual Father’s Day stall will again be available to students so that they can buy dad a gift. All classes will be timetabled next Wednesday 30th August to purchase something at the stall. The gifts cost $4. If you would like your child to buy something please don’t forget to send the money on Wednesday. The stall will also be open from 8:30-9:00am before school on Thursday and Friday when Year 4s will be able to buy a gift for Dad.
WE WANT OUR PARENTS TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK
Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents at each school.
It is designed to assist our school in gaining an understanding of parents’ perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.
The survey will be conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 7th August to Sunday 27th August.
Approximately 30 per cent of parents will be invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous.
On Monday all families that were randomly selected by the Education Department will receive a flyer with instructions and a link to complete this years parent survey.
Our recent parent teacher interviews are an example of changes made based on parent feedback in last years survey.
