Attention 2017 Reception parents re: Monday 30/01

Dear Reception Parents ,

We are excited about the year ahead and meeting with reception parents in each classroom, at 11.30am on Monday 30th January. Class teachers will be providing parents with useful information to support a successful transition to school for the reception students.  Unfortunately, at this stage, the forecast for Monday is 38 degrees with a possibility of showers. Should Monday’s forecasted temperature (Sunday evening) exceed 35 degrees or if it is raining, the play in the park between 12pm and 1pm will be cancelled. The teacher information session will go ahead, regardless of the weather.  If the play in the park goes ahead, it is completely optional and students are welcome to bring along their own lunch and have a play with their new peers. It will also provide an opportunity for parents to meet each other.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school on 8276 1523, Rick Bennallack on 0412 261 231 or email the class teacher or Jodie Cunningham at

We look forward to seeing you next week! Veronica Scicchitano, Sarah Grant, Steph Coutts, Kylie Booth and Renae Simmons
