Dear Parents,

Our most important survey yet is here. This survey is critically important as it hel ps us understand your expectations for your child and also will help us support the wellbeing of each child. I have included the engagement and wellbeing questions below so you can review them in advance. You will need to talk with your child and get their feedback to complete the first two sections.

Other updates:

  • Student led conferences will continue as originally planned, but now in the week of 23 March. The big difference is that you will have the conference at home with your child and then upload a brief reflection to your child’s teacher via google Classroom or Seesaw. More details will follow in the week preceding the conferences and obviously you will be able to run the conference at a time that suits your family during that week.
  • Y 4-6 Camps. We are currently investigating viability and options for camps and will have detailed information to you in the week of 23 March
  • We need you to complete the survey!

Take care and we look forward to seeing your feedback to survey #3.


Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly
