Principal's Update: 2nd August 2021

As a school community it is always important to stay in touch with all members of our community. Our students have a strong voice through discussions in their classrooms and through the student leadership team and the two student committees: Student Representative Council and the Student Environment Committee. The students also give very interesting reports at our weekly assembly about our RIPOR expectations, Sports reports and reports from other areas of the curriculum.

Staff have a voice through the staff meeting, their Department meetings and through the Staff Action Groups. Currently a group of staff are working on a whole school project which will occur in September – the Ashwood Arts Spectacular.

Our parents have a voice - every day in the diary and at meetings specifically about your son/daughter. Sometimes the school requests a meeting and sometimes the parents request a meeting. If you wish to have a meeting please ask at the Office and Lyndie will arrange a time and date – it’s that easy! Parents also have a voice through our School Council and through our Parents and Friends Association.

Attached to this newsletter is a survey for parents and carers about the recent home learning experience. Please take the time to complete this survey as it will help inform us for any future periods of home learning.

I hope you are all managing OK as we continue to keep our community safe and healthy.

Best wishes
Helen Hatherly
