New Class for Semester 2

6/06/2014

​I have been successful in negotiating with Regional Staffing for an additional Year 1 teacher, starting from the beginning of Term 3, for the remainder of the year. As our Prep and Year 1 families will be aware, our classes have grown due to large in catchment enrolments  post-Day 8.  This will mean that our Year 1 students in the Prep/1 class will form the basis of the new class. They will also be joined by a few students from our existing Year 1 class, to form a class of only 20 students.  There will also be a number of students who will transition from Mr Darren Waugh’s Prep class to Mrs McKean’s Prep class, so that all classes will be reduced, and under target size.  I will be contacting the parents of students who will be directly affected by the change in the coming week. This is very exciting development for our school and a great indication that our school is the school of choice for residents residing in our catchment.

To support our teachers and students in our larger classes this semester, the school has paid for an additional 300 teacher hours and 350 additional teacher aide hours across the Prep to Year 1 classes. My sincere thanks to Mr Darren Waugh, Mrs Jan McKean and Miss Brid McGrath, who have worked hard to meet the needs of all students.
