A Message from the Primary Deputy

Welcome to 2019 at William Carey.  I trust people have had enjoyable and relaxing holidays.  If you are new to William Carey this year, please make yourself known; a great opportunity to do this is at the Primary Parent Information Evening, held on Wednesday 6th February.

We are endeavouring to provide dates for our school community in advance, so there are three main ways we will do this, which are outlined below.

  • CLICK HERE to find a list of all Sport activities K-6, for the entire year. Obviously there will be a few minor additions and changes over the year, but the list should be 95% complete.  Please keep this somewhere safe, so you know what is coming up and check for updates in the newsletter.
  • All currently known Prep – Year 6 events, sport and otherwise, have been entered onto the Edumate (Parent Portal) calendar. If you don’t know how to access this, or need your password reset, please email edumate@wccs.nsw.edu.au for assistance.  This calendar includes assemblies, camps, excursions, etc.  It is updated over the year, as new events are created and confirmed.
  • Each newsletter will also contain fortnightly updates (“Coming Soon”), while the first newsletter each term will have some key events for the term.
