FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK

Dear Parents, Carers and Community Members

Welcome to 2019 School Year at Bannister Creek Primary School

Together we can make a difference in our children’s education

 A warm welcome is extended to new families and students to our school community. We have had a settled and smooth start to the school year. It was great to see our students and families again, with everyone excited and happy to see friends and meet their teachers. I’m impressed that we have all children wearing school uniform and most with all their stationery requirements. Thank you parents for your support.
I would particularly like to acknowledge our dedicated staff, many of whom spent a considerable amount of time at school in the holidays preparing classrooms and programs. Sincere thanks to our Administration Team for their commitment and efficient organisation which has contributed to the smooth start.
It is such a pleasure to walk into our school. The school buildings and classrooms are looking great, thanks to the care and effort from our school cleaners and gardener.

2019 Class/School Information Sessions – 21st February 5:45 to 6:30pm

One of the strengths at our school is the support and involvement of parents in classes and school events. In order to inform families of 2019 school direction, we are holding a school information evening for parents of Years 2 to 6 students on Thursday, 21st February.
At 5:45pm, school leaders will present a 10 minute 2019 school overview in the Undercover Area. Parents will then have the opportunity to attend class meetings, where teachers will outline class programs and policies. All class meetings will be held in your child’s classroom in the 6:00-6:30pm time slot. Parents with more than one child will have to prioritise which class meeting to attend.
Teachers will have notes available for parents who are not at the meeting and parents can also book an individual meeting with their child’s teacher for a later date.
If children attend, they have the option of sitting quietly in the class meeting with parents, or they can go to the library where they will watch a movie or play games, supervised by school staff.

Kindergarten Room 1 & 2 Yellow Group class meetings will be held on Wednesday 20th February at 9:00 to 9:30am
Kindergarten Room 1 & 2 Blue Group class meetings will be held on Wednesday 27th February at 9:00 to 9:30am.
Pre-Primary class meetings are also on Wednesday 20th February at 2:00 to 2:30pm.
Year 1 class meetings will be held on 27th February at 3:00 to 3:30pm

Parents are encouraged to attend these sessions; we value your support.

Kind Regards
Lyn Macauley
