From the Principal
As with most large organisations, we take our responsibility to the environment seriously.
You will have noticed that we no longer send brightly coloured, printed paper newsletters on a monthly basis, and we have shifted to a twice termly online newsletter which is accessed through our website. Features of the old paper newsletter like dates and reminders have been replaced by online calendars which remain constantly updated with accurate information. Skoolbag now offers us the facility to send push notifications direct to parents’ pockets or bags through the wonders of mobile devices. Facebook and WeChat allow us to send information which appears on existing Social Media streams. In many classrooms, teachers are now sending real-time updates to families about student learning on apps like SeeSaw.
Although change can sometimes take a little time to adjust to, and for a while you may be missing the old newsletters and reminders which littered our playground or your own kitchen surfaces at the end of the school day. However, by connecting to our website, social media and SkoolBag app, you’ll find that you have access to far more current, up-to-date information and news than we could ever fit onto the old A3 newsletters!
Enjoy your mid-year holiday break!
