Acquaintance Night 2017

 Meet our Teachers and other Parents and Caregivers (and students)

Monday 13 February

While teachers have already met quite a number of parents and caregivers, we do look forward to having the opportunity on Acquaintance Night to meet with all families together to communicate  our vision for our learners and  information about curriculum, routines, expectations and organisational matters. Some teachers will also have their students actively presenting information during Acquaintance Night.  We also see Acquaintance Night as an opportunity for adults to meet each other and develop a sense of belonging to a new network of families. We hope new people are able to meet families and feel a little more welcomed into our community.

Acquaintance Night Meeting Times:

R-2        : 6.30 pm – 7:00 pm

Yrs 3-5 : 7.05 pm – 7.35 pm

Yrs 6/7 : 7.40 pm – 8.10 pm

We know there will be some doubling up for some families; making it difficult to attend one or more of the scheduled meetings.  If this is the case for you, please be assured that teachers are happy to catch up with you at other times to clarify vision for their learners, routines and expectations.

Please Note:

This is not a time to discuss individual student’s needs. As always if you need to discuss any matter with your child’s teacher you are most welcome to make an appointment.

Specialist teachers and leadership team

The specialist teachers and leadership team will be available in the gym during the evening, where tea and coffee will be on offer. If you would like to speak with one of the specialist teachers and are unable to touch base on the night, please phone the school to arrange a mutually convenient time. Specialist teachers will post information on the blog in the coming weeks about their programs this year.

Please move promptly to the next class if you are attending more than one session.

Our teachers are looking forward to meeting you!

Acquaintance Night

Acquaintance night is held at the start of each year by each of the classes. This is an opportunity for you to meet your child’s teacher and get an understanding of how they work and what you can expect for your child during the year. It is held at night time so the majority of people can attend with partners and care givers. It is also a time when you can find out how you can help in the class and meet other parents and caregivers.

Please note that this is not a one-on-one interview with the teacher. There will be an opportunity later in the term for you to have this meeting with the teacher to discuss how your child is going and cover issues specific to your child. Obviously if you have an immediate concerns then you can speak to the teacher and make a time to have a personal meeting with them.

This year the Acquaintance night will be held on Tuesday 10th February 2015 with times depending on your child’s year level and class. You should receive information from the teacher regarding the time.
