Preparation for Success

Attendance at school is crucial for all students’ academic success. This might sound like an obvious statement to most, but it needs reinforcement. Regular attendance allows for continuity in learning and helps develop self-discipline. Another positive is that better outcomes can be achieved by students, leading to a greater sense of achievement which can only be good for their wellbeing. Part of the role of schools is to prepare young people for the ‘real world’, be it in the workplace or in higher studies. Of course we do not want students coming to school when they are ill. In the event of any absence, please inform the school as soon as possible to ensure any leave is recorded as justified.

Parent / Teacher interviews will occur in the near future. Stage 4 interviews are being held on Wednesday 22nd June and Stage 5 on Wednesday 29th June. This year we are using Sentral to organise interview times. The system worked well for the Stage 6 interviews and we will continue to use this in future years.

I encourage all parents and carers to utilise the parent portal on Sentral. The many interviews I have had with parents and carers indicates how effective this resource is when monitoring student behaviour and performance. To access the portal you only need to follow the prompts from the parent tab on our website.

Following in the newsletter is an information sheet for ‘Future Care Mobile Dentist Services.’ They will be providing the free service to our students during Week 2 of next term. Students are asked to return the details and permission sheets to the front office by the end of this term.
