We warmly welcome families back to the 2022 school year, and I look forward to getting to know those who are new to our school community, and journeying with families, as together we work towards the development and growth of your children academically, socially, and spiritually. It’s been an interesting start to the school year (yet again!) but we will begin to move into more normal school life soon.
The next stage of our new building plan has opened and we welcomed Year 3 into The Learning Village. The children and the staff are enjoying the new spaces and I’m so excited to see all the planning come to fruition.
We trust you enjoyed the videos that were provided by teachers, in place of the usual Class Information Sessions. The purpose of these sessions is to give parents an overview of the year ahead, and an introduction to your classroom teacher, and their expectations for the class. Discussions on individual students and their progress will occur during the official Parent teacher interviews in Week 10 of term.
Although I work as a school leader and manager, I am firstly a teacher, who loves just being around children, and working with staff in a child’s development. As such, you will see me out and about the school grounds, and regularly in classrooms. Our teacher-parent-student relationships are vital, and I encourage parents to connect with me when possible; even just for a quick hello and a chat. I also pray that the start of the school year has been a blessed one for your families, as you send your older children back to school, and some of your children to school for the first time. May the peace of God be with you all these coming weeks.
Can I take this opportunity to remind families to subscribe to the College App (including any activities your child is involved in) – this is the point of contact for most College correspondence.
I’m looking forward to what the coming year has in store for us all.
Head of School – Primary
