Being fair shows you care – FISH for life

Welcome to our new school year As mentioned last week in our “quickie” we have 5 new Kindergarten students and one new family. We warmly welcome Hugh and Hannah S and their son Roman to our school along with congratulating Sarah M, Ethan B, Eden S and Archie McD on graduating from our Connections group to ‘Big School”. Our enrolment numbers have meant that we change from 3 full time classes, back to 2. Miss Hanns has very kindly taken on the role of our K-2 teacher this year, and unfortunately for the Primary kids, I am back on the 3-6 class. Mrs Faulkner returns to us again this year but in a slightly different role as Release from face to face teacher, Librarian and Learning Support Teacher. Mrs Kemp and Mrs Isbester are supporting our students again in the classroom along with some assistance of Mrs Hodges. Mrs Horan, who will be with us in an different administrative role, will still continue to support us - however as she is also supporting 11 other small schools I’m sure that you will understand she is not able to be at our immediate beck and call, as she has been. Mr Horan remains in charge of keeping our grounds in immaculate condition and Fay will continue to keep our facilities in tip top shape. Contacting the school I’m sure that everyone is aware of the procedures that we have in place for contacting the school. As all of our staff have a direct responsibility for supporting the most important part of our school- our students - your children, you would understand that we can not always be available to take your phone calls or answer your message instantly. If you do wish to contact us you can certainly phone and leave a message and we will attempt to get back to you during a break. You can also email [email protected] if you wish to pass on some information. I do realise that in our situation we do have an opportunity to get to know our school community quite well, but we hope that this does not compromise our roles as professionals. In saying that respecting the staff by giving privacy and only contacting via school, waiting to be invited into a classrooms etc would be very much appreciated. If you do have a concern or issue regarding our school, I strongly urge you to speak directly to the person involved first. In most cases this will lead to a resolution. If you are not satisfied then please contact the school office for support in trying to resolve your concern. Notes Home Our regular correspondence will be via this fortnightly newsletter. You can request an emailed version and we also post it online to our Skoolbag app for you to access. We will also send home notes on various occasions, so it might be worth setting up a routine to regularly check your child’s bag for any notes from us. It would also be appreciated if any notes back to us at school are addressed to the person concerned and that if you are sending in money to use a sealed envelope or sandwich bag with your child’s name, the amount enclosed and the purpose clearly written on the outside. Skoolbag is our regular means of communicating changes of routine to our school community and you can also s
