Welcome to 2020 at William Carey. I trust people have had enjoyable and relaxing holidays, despite the fires. 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 Tuesday 4th February. A note will come home about this, with further details.
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.
1. 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.
2. All currently known P-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 firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. This calendar includes assemblies, camps, excursions, etc. It is updated over the year, as new events are created and confirmed.
3. Each newsletter will also contain fortnightly updates (“Coming Soon”), while the first newsletter each term will have some key events for the term.
As mentioned in a note sent home during the week, we are endeavouring to make all communication from WCCS electronic, and as much of it to the school as well. To make this effective, we need your feedback. The goal will be for most information to come to you via Edumate/WCCS App. This will also include the facility for you to respond to grant permission for your child to attend an activity and to add extra information required (transport arrangements, swimming ability, etc).
If any of this is scaring you, please come along to the Primary Information Evening where there will be a demonstration, and people will be on hand to assist.
