A Trip Out of this World for Year 1s
By Lesa Eastwell, Year Level Leader - Year 1
The Year 1 students visited the Sir Thomas Planetarium in Brisbane this week. As this was many of the students' first excursion the anticipation was high!
Paul Taylor, Head of Junior School
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I welcome back staff and families to this new year! It has been wonderful to hear stories from our students about the exciting things they have experienced over the holidays and I am pleased to see that they are so excited to return.
I would like to thank parents for their assistance in ensuring the car park continues to run smoothly, particularly of an afternoon. Please remember, the ELP car park spaces are reserved for Pre-Prep families only.
I would like to welcome new families to the Junior School and hope they are settling well and making friends. If your child is experiencing any difficulty, please speak with their classroom teacher as quickly as possible so we can assist in making a smooth transition. I would also like to welcome five new staff to the Junior School – Miss Rachel Skyring (Year 1), Miss Vicky Speight (Year 2), Mr Brad Cates (Year 4), Miss Melissa Black (Pre-Prep to Year 5 Music) and Mrs Sam Powell (Pre-Prep Assistant). I am sure you will join with me in welcoming these five staff, along with our new families.
Please remember to check you Classroom Communication Pages regularly, and the College Calendar, on Schoolbox. If you are having difficulties accessing the correct pages, please let us know.
Communication is important and I ask that if you have any concerns or queries regarding your child’s progress, you speak directly with your child’s classroom teacher. If you need time with your child’s teacher, please email them or phone to make an appointment and they will be more than happy to meet with you at a convenient time.
Finally, I would like to wish you all the best for the year ahead. I know that 2016 will be great!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
