Praying for Our Year 12 Friends
Being part of a Prep to Year 12 school is a real blessing. We have the privilege of watching our students start their educational journey as bright eyed four year olds and mature into young men and women ready to face the world. As our Year 12 students head into their HSC, we in Primary will be praying for them regularly. We start each day of the HSC by announcing the exams our students will be sitting and praying specifically for them. Classes also dedicate prayer time to the Year 12 students. It is our prayer that they will approach their exams with confidence and know God’s presence as they face each day.
Staffing for 2019
We are currently in the midst of plans and interviews in preparation for staffing 2019. This is a challenging process, but one which God blesses year after year by providing us with the right people. I would appreciate your prayers as we make decisions for next year, and also for our staff as some consider changes to their current arrangements.
Grandparent’s Day is on early next term. This is a great day for children to showcase what they do at school, and for parents and grandparents to be involved. The day commences at 12:30 pm and the activities for this year are:
Students in Years 3 and 5 should have received their NAPLAN results by now. As you would have heard in the media, it is challenging to know how to compare results across two different test types this year. However, for me that is never the goal. The most significant pages of the NAPLAN report are the middle and back pages, which clearly show what skills your child has mastered, and which ones are still being worked on. I would encourage parents to look carefully at those pages, in order to see what this snapshot of their child’s progress shows. The letter you received with your child’s report contains a web address that provides further information about interpreting the report.
