We have had a great start to the year in Year 7 & 8. I think learning conferences played a big part in this. Thank you for prioritising these meetings and for the contributions you made.
Home Learning: This afternoon I have ordered maths and science badges, literacy workbooks and started the Mathletics enrolment ball rolling. It will take a few days for these things to arrive at school. If your child has opted for one of these programmes, they should be ready to go by the start of week 3. Home learning books with contracts inside and maths home learning clear-files should come home on Monday. The first day the home learning books are due back at school by Friday Feb 15.
Technology: This gets underway on Tuesday.Children need to take; pencil cases, sun-hats and morning tea. They can bring money to spend at the tuck shop.
Languages: These start on Monday of week 3. Cashmere has just contacted us to say that Japanese will be replaced by Spanish this year. The other language is French.
Sun-hats: These are compulsory from Monday. They are available for purchase at the school office before or after school.
Leadership Positions: We have been flooded with applications. Children will know positions by the end of week 2.
Books for the library: Barrington Paper plus is the place to visit if you would like to purchase a book to donate to our library, at 30% off the full price.
