OK - I know what it's like right now at this time of year, so for ease and simplicity this week it's all about dates! 

Wednesday 16 December 
THE WRAP 5.30 pm

Friday 18 December 
School finishes 1.00 pm 

Here's the first few to get you sorted early:

Friday 29 January 9.00-10.00 am
Stationery Drop Off here at school. Details on how to order stationery and the requirements can be found elsewhere in this newsletter. 
This is a time for you to pop in, chat to teachers and drop off the stationery before the excitement of Day 1. Teachers have a meeting starting at 10.00 am sharp.

Tuesday 2 February 8.55 am
School starts. Please go straight to the class spaces.

Wednesday 3 February 
Family Picnic Fun and Games, Miramar Park, 6.00-7.30 pm
Please find details in the newsletter.

Tuesday 9 February 6.30-7.45 pm 
Parent Workshop - Senior School
Thursday 11 February 6.30-7.45 pm
Parent Workshop - Junior School
These 'workshops' will be a great opportunity for parents and teachers to chat big ideas and aspirations for the year ahead. Some of you may not have met 2016 teachers .......
pop in and say "hi" and introduce yourself any time before the end of term - they will love that.

15-25 February 
Goal Setting Meetings
Online bookings will go live when school is back. As mentioned, we are making some changes. These initial meetings are nice and early and involve children, the base group teacher and yourselves having a catch up about how the year has started, touching on learning goals and making sure all 3 parts of the triangle are on the same page!
In 2016, reporting on progress and achievement against National Standards will occur in Terms 2 and 4.

Friday 26 February 9.10 am
This is where we formally welcome all new families and staff to the school. (All families who started school during Terms 2/3/4 2015 and will be starting in Term 1 2016.) 
This is a wonderful 'ritual' and the whole school community looks forward to being part of this and having a coffee/tea/tasty morsel and chat afterwards.
More details will be communicated early 2016.

Saturday 5 March 7.00 pm
Scottish Ceilidh Dance with Live Band, Schiehallian, Miramar Bowling Club
Please find details in the newsletter.

Wednesday 9 March - Friday 11 March

So, yes, as usual just a little bit going on!

This is the final newsletter of 2015. It has been an extremely rewarding year. We thank you for your partnership ....together we can!
