As we move into term 4 we will be starting to work on class composition for 2018. 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, educational grounds and creating classes of equitable numbers. Children are asked for an indication of who might be great learning partners for them. Teachers consider who students work well with and will work to meet the needs of all students. Our class formation policy is at the back of the newsletter. 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 Sue by Wednesday October 25 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.
If by some chance you have forgotten to put in your enrolment form for prep 2018 please get it in to the office. If your family is moving on next year (aside from year 6 students) please notify the office in writing so we can plan accordingly.
