From the Principal
This week we sent out emails to all families with links to the 2023 Biennial Community Survey. The resulting data and feedback is very important to us and is used to help guide our school priorities and direction heading into the next 2-3 years.
The survey covers a wide range of areas, and is copied from surveys of previous years, enabling us to identify any trends and patterns. There are 2 versions of the survey, one in English, the other Chinese. All results will be combined into one report.
It will take 5-10 minutes to complete the survey, a perfect holiday activity, and we request that all responses are returned by Thursday 12th October at 3pm.
Term 3 ends at 3pm this Friday 22nd September. We wish all our community a restful break and (hopefully) some sunshine and warm weather!
Student Led Conferences
These take place this week and we look forward to welcoming you to school to share in your child’s learning journey! Having the most important partners in a student’s learning together in one place is a wonderful opportunity- please ensure you give your child this gift by attending their conference this week.
