Our school is a place of faith and learning
Dear Parents and Families,
Today, you will receive your child/childrens’ reports digitally, via the Parent Access Module(PAM). If you would prefer a hard copy, please contact the school and we will arrange one for you.The reports will look slightly different this year and if you have any questions, please ask your child’s teacher during Parent/Teacher Interviews.
After an initial glitch, most families have now selected an interview time. If you have any difficulty, once again, we ask you to contact reception and they should be able to assist you.
SIBLING FOUNDATION ENROLMENTS
Enrolment Interviews for Sibling Foundation Families will take place on July 27th, 2021.
These will be held online via google meet. Online registrations will open next term. We look forward to learning more about your child/children before they transition into primary school.
END OF TERM
Just a reminder that children will finish the term, next Thursday, June 24th, 2021 at 3.15pm.
Teachers will have a professional learning day on Friday, June 25th, 2021. They will be looking at the science of reading and the research around best practice.
Next term, we will ask all our Foundation children to exit the school via the Raglan St or Guthridge Parade, Gumnuts gate. We ask parents to discuss end of day arrangements with their children or perhaps even practise the arrangements next week.
ST THOMAS’ FEAST DAY
Due to our feast day falling during the holiday period, we will celebrate our Feast Day on Thursday July 22nd 2021. More details to follow.
Enjoy your weekend,
Anita and Staff

Registration is simple, just follow the 3 simple steps on your child’s personalised flyer once you receive it and remember to add the codes for all your children attending this school.
Even if you registered last year, it’s important that you do again this year using your child’s 2021 image code to link their images for the current year with your contact details.
