I would like to inform our community of the staff profile and grade structure for 2016. Great consideration has been given to placing children in their grades for next year. Classes have now been finalised.
I believe in my heart that we have the very finest staff imaginable who provide outstanding, enriching and authentic learning opportunities for the children.
On Thursday the children will visit their classrooms and met their teachers for 2016. No doubt there will be great excitement as children make their way to their new rooms. By visiting their grades a day before the end of the school year it is possible for all children to have an extra day to talk about their new grades and teacher, and especially for the children to have the opportunity to socialize with their new buddies. Several of the children who will be joining us for next year will also come to meet their new buddies and teachers.
We are now ready for 2016!
