Welcome back to the 2015 school year.  I am most excited to be starting another year of learning at Wandong Primary School. This year we have continued to grow in enrolments, with 317 students beginning school this week. 

 

We welcome 75 Foundation students, 89 grade 1/2 students, 79 grade 3/4 students and 74 grade 5/6 students. We are running fourteen classes, ensuring we keep our classroom numbers as small as is viably possible. Beyond their regular classroom, our students will participate in Visual Art, Performing Art and Physical Education classes.  In addition, our Foundation to grade two students will also participate in Indonesian language classes.

 

Explicitly teaching the required skills, linking learning to past knowledge, maintaining high expectations and minimising time off task will continue to ensure that Wandong Primary School students receive the best possible learning opportunities. 

 

Our positive and welcoming school culture expects interactions are based on our six school values.  These are:


 

Respect:  Valuing yourself and others.

 

Responsibility: Being responsible for what we do, say and learn.

 

Care: Showing concern for one another.

 

Friendship: Getting along and being friendly to one another.

 

Honesty: Being truthful to yourself and others.

 

Doing your best: Trying your hardest to produce to your best effort.


 

These underpin the decisions we make and how we conduct ourselves – as staff, students and parents.

 

Parents are very welcome to join in on the learning journey at Wandong Primary School.  Towards the end of term one parents are invited into classrooms as part of our Classroom Helpers program.  This program, also extended to grandparents, provides much needed (and appreciated) additional assistance within our regular learning programs.

 

Our 2016 year is already filled with a number of wonderful extra-curricular events.  These include sporting carnivals, family social events, camps/excursions and visiting artists. It will certainly be a great year.

 

Regards,   

 

Rhonda Cole
