Newsletter Vol. 9

Dear Parents and Carers

Behaviour Management Forms: A Behaviour Management form is sent home to inform parents and carers of incidents where a student’s behaviour has been outside of the class or school rules. A photocopy of the form is made in case a form is misplaced. The form is to be signed and returned to inform the school that the parents and carers are aware of the behaviour.  This also allows the Administration Staff to create a record of behaviour. A member of the Administration Staff will usually make a courtesy phone call if the form is not returned on the next school day.  If a form comes home, please show your support for the school by signing and returning the form.

Semester One Reports: Staff have been working steadily on the production of end of semester reports.  These will be emailed on Tuesday June 26, so that there is time for parents to arrange interviews with teachers, if one has been requested, or they have a concern they wish to discuss with their child’s teacher.

Grades given in these reports are based on the content covered at the mid-point of the year. Grades could vary from Semester One to Semester Two as more content has been covered by the end of the year.

This edition’s “Parenting Ideas – Insights” is entitled ‘Reading your child’s report’ and contains some very constructive suggestions on how to reduce the anxiety levels that are often associated with reports for both students and parents.  Please make the time to read it before you read child’s report this term.

Newsletter Vol. 8

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to recognise the whole Poseidon Staff for how magnificently they have supported each other since the passing of our School Officer Mrs Jo Why. The strength of their relationships has been of great comfort and has greatly assisted in the smooth operation of the school. Thank you also to the P&C for re-scheduling the movie night and the kind messages of condolence communicated to the school and Jo’s family.

Mrs Why’s funeral will be held at 3:30pm tomorrow Friday June 8 and I ask for the co-operation of parents and families to vacate the school premises by 3:00pm to enable staff to attend the funeral.

With the change in weather I have noticed two slight issues that require attention.

  1. Parents accessing the Staff Car Park. This is a safety issue as adults and children are walking through the Car Park. It also creates a difficulty before school as staff are often unable to find any empty parking bays. A very clear reminder that NO PARENTS are to park in the STAFF Car Park unless they need to park in the ACROD Bay.  Parents can only use the ACROD bay if they have been issued an official ACROD permit or an official Poseidon Primary School Permit to do so.  The school permit is issued at the front office.
  2. Students are wearing jumpers, jackets, multi-coloured leggings which are outside the current School Dress Code. There has also been a noticeable increase in the use of nail polish. Please ensure the high standard of school uniforms is maintained.

To help you assist in these two areas I have attached information on Parking at the school and the School Dress Code.

I look forward to this week’s assembly and the P&C movie night next Friday.

Newsletter Vol. 7

Dear Parents and Carers

All students and staff are now well settled into their routines for Term 2 and are engaged in a variety of interesting and exciting learning opportunities.

NAPLAN testing has been administered with the majority of students completing their tests in a positive manner. We look forward to receiving the data in Term 3.

The dance lessons are progressing with a development of students’ skills and confidence very evident. The skills will be on display during the Dance Finale on Monday June 25.

I would like to recognise and thank the K/PP/1 staff who worked together to create a well-attended and enjoyed Mother’s Day celebration on Wednesday May 16. Guests were immersed in a range of activities and pampering including hair styling, hand and shoulder massages, having nail polish applied and for some the joy of a leg “shave”. Thank you to all staff who celebrated Mother’s Day in their rooms throughout the school.

The new Nature Playground is continuing to progress with the majority of elements being installed. Please stroll by and have a look at the work being done.

Newsletter Vol. 6

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back to the start of Term 2 which in the usual Poseidon manner promises to be a very busy and exciting term. Already planned events include NAPLAN Assessments, Dance Classes (PP – Year 6) and Winter Interschool Sports (Year 5/6).

Work has finally commenced on the school’s new nature playground. This should be completed by the end of May and students will then to be able to start enjoying this long overdue upgrade to our playground.

I will be taking leave commencing May 21 for a medical procedure that will require me to be away from school for the remainder of the term.  During my absence, Michael Wright will be the Acting Principal and Margaret Willett and Michelle Porro will share the Acting Associate Principal’s position. Michelle Hennigan will fill the teaching responsibilities for the staff who will be working in an administrator’s role during this time.

I take this opportunity to wish all of the Mothers involved in our school community a very happy Mother’s Day for Sunday May 13. I hope you are all spoilt and have a fantastic day.
