As we move into term 4 we will be starting to work on class composition for 2017. This can cause some concern for parents. Please be assured that staff spend a considerable time working on class construction to enhance the educational opportunities for all students. Class groupings are formed around mixed gender ability and creating classes of equitable numbers. Children are asked for an indication of whom they might fit best with. Teachers consider whom students work well with and will work to meet the needs of all students. Teachers are allocated to classes in the final stages.
If you feel there is an issue that would affect your child’s placement please put this in writing to me or Megan Ganter by Friday October 21 to enable us to take this into consideration. Parents are not able to request particular teachers, however we recognise that there may be circumstances we are not aware of that we may need to know about. We will of course make classes that provide the best educational opportunities for all students.
