The Hillsmeade Fundraising Committee sells Hot Chocolates and Zooper Doopers from the Canteen on Tuesdays to raise funds. Some new parent helpers are required to help out!
If you can help on Tuesdays from 1.10pm to 2.30pm let us know.
Please contact Mayumi Watts to get onto the roster, or you can contact the school office to connect with the HFC. Thanks!
Please note: a (free) Working With Children check is required.
Please connect to the school portal as soon as possible.
The portal provides families with direct access to discreet information about your child as well as an interactive area to communicate directly with your child’s teacher and the school via a secure application managed by the school.
Initially, the portal will provide parents with access to your child’s enrolment details and will allow you to update these records. Parents will be able view your child’s attendance records and provide explanations for any unexplained absences. As a parent you will be able to view school newsletters, class notices and communicate directly with your child’s teacher.
As the portal is developed it will provide you with more significant information about your child and their progress at school.
To facilitate access to the portal all families will require a valid email address. Once registered you will be required to enter your unique family access key. Please contact the office for your portal letter.
We have received our 2016 Kindergarten parent opinion survey from the Department of Education. Last year families enrolled in the funded kindergarten program were invited to fill in a survey regarding our program. It was very encouraging to read question 8 “Friendliness of kindergarten towards children, families and visitors” with 100% response that we are very friendly.
Our kindergarten and prep teachers have recently attended professional development regarding the transition to school. We also had the opportunity to network and meet with other local kindergarten teachers. We are now in the process of planning and preparing our next transition to school process for 2018. One of our local kindergartens is Littlecroft, we are planning three visits this term where the kindergarten class with their teachers and parent helpers will walk to the school for an excursion to find out all about school. Our Early Learning Centre will also be involved in similar visits to classrooms and finding out what happens in specialist classes.
If you are planning on picking your child up from school in between 11-11:30am or 1:30-2:30pm, please let the office or teacher know so we can have your child and their bags waiting in the office.
While the kids are outside, it is hard for them to hear all of the announcements. Our teachers also lock the classrooms during recess and lunch so it can make collecting school bags difficult.
After school if you are running late please call the office before 3:20pm so we can call your child to the office and have them wait with us.
Please remember school finishes at 3:30pm each day and your child is required to be picked up no later than 3:45pm.
Reminder: tomorrow afternoon will be whole school electives from 2.45pm. There is no assembly.
Helpers are required to cover new reader books at the school. Please contact the office if you can help.
