Dear Parents and Students,
LEARNING ASSISTANT POSITIONS - 2019
We have been very impressed with our learning assistants this year. Their commitment to help our students and teachers
has been outstanding, and with this in mind, we have asked if they can be available in 2019. Most are available
and keen, but we do have a couple of vacancies at the year 5/ 6 level of the school.
If you would be keen to be a learning assistant in 2019, working four days a week for 3 hours each day, helping our
teachers and children learn, please send a cover letter and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications close on Wednesday, December 5.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE ADVERTISING EARLY as some LA’s may start their role when the year starts
for the students.
UNIFORM - SUNHATS
For 2019 most uniform items need to be ordered online. The details of how to
do this will be outlined in next weeks newsletter. The one item we are still going to sell at our school office
will be the school sunhat. We have received emails from parents concerned at the current price of the sunhat, and
asking if they can buy an alternative hat. The Board of Trustees have discussed this and the answer is no, as they
are worried about the different hats that may be introduced, the quality of the hat and our branding. What we have
been able to do is negotiate a lower price for the sunhat with suppliers. In 2019, our sunhats will sell through
the office at $10.
Having 760 sunhats can be a huge mystery if they are not named. Please ensure your childs hat is named on the inside.
The stationery requirements for 2019 for your child are available to look at online
from December 1st. A note will be coming home to explain how this ordering system works.
Year 5/ 6 exception. Parents of 2019 Year 5 & 6 students - Please note: there are 2 different
stationery lists for Year 5/6. You will need to wait until December 10 when classes are announced to know which
stationery list applies to your child.
XMAS ON THE GREEN
We invite our students, staff and families to come together on Monday, December
10 to have a family picnic on our field. Some Xmas music will be playing, so get in the festive spirit and pack
a picnic, or buy some takeaways and join us between 5.45pm and 7pm.
Thank you so much to the parents who turned up on Wednesday to discuss Collaboration
and our Collaborative Learning Environments in 2019. We appreciated your time and the opportunity to share thoughts,
questions and information.
