Welcome and Happy New Year! I hope the year is filled with happiness and goodness. I would like to extend a special welcome to all new families. I hope that soon all your questions will be answered as you settle into our routines and traditions. At Canning Vale Primary School we value parents as authentic partners so please don’t be shy. By now you will have received at least one email from your child’s classroom teacher (in some cases teachers). Please use this communication tool if you are unable to come in to talk face to face. Effective communication is the key to successful relationships. I commend the “Meet your new teacher” meetings to you. Some have already occurred with the majority happening next week. These meetings are filled with useful information about the teacher, classroom routines and expectations. Luckily this year, enrolments steadied and this meant a restructure of classes was not necessary. Assembly change: Last year for Term 1, we trialled holding assemblies at 8.55. This was positively received by students, teachers and parents. As a result, we have changed the assembly time to 8.55 for the year. I look forward to seeing many of you there. Thank you to the children in M2 and Mr Wilson for hosting the first assembly held last Wednesday. Honour certificates and citizenship awards: These will now be published in the newsletter retrospectively. Your child’s teacher will either phone or email you prior to the assembly if they are receiving an award to enable you to attend. Congratulations again to the 2017 Student Leaders; Xuan, Marli, Angelina, Tarlesha, Seren, Sophie, Piper, Seth, Connor, and Anabelle. I am looking forward to working with this wonderful group of leaders.
