Again, this week, we have been extremely busy. Teachers have been working in their 2019 teams planning for Term 1. We will be having three new staff join us in 2019 and it has been great having them available at school to work, plan and prepare for a very successful 2019. With Christmas shopping (something I haven’t yet started), Christmas functions (remember to start a new fitness program after Christmas), meetings and the many other things we have to do at this time of the year, we sometimes forget to STOP and reflect on our past achievements. We have had a great year! We should be very proud of our school and the students who work so hard to improve their performance. Our parents are incredibly supportive.

When visiting our Foundation classes, I am often reminded of what amazing learning growth looks like. How a student can arrive at school at the beginning of the year only being able to scribble write and now writes two to three pages of text with correct spelling and neat handwriting is so impressive.

Park Ridge Primary is a great school achieving great outcomes.

Last Day of School

Students will be dismissed from school on the last day (Friday 21 December) at 1:15pm. Weather permitting, we will be holding a final assembly at the podium at 12:55pm.  At our assembly, we will say farewell to the Year 6 class of 2018 and recognise our award winners from our Graduation.

Moving Day

To prepare for 2019, many of our classrooms have moved to accommodate the 2019 room structure. This information was forwarded to parents via Compass on Wednesday. Students will be working in their new classrooms for the rest of the year.

For the Diary

Next year school begins on Thursday 31 January for all students in Years F-6. Students will process directly to their new classrooms.
