From the Principal (Issue 12)
Dear Parents and Caregivers
After an extraordinary term, I know that staff and students alike are ready for the spring break.
However, our Year 12s who are studying ATAR subjects have their Trial Examinations in the second week of the school holidays and we wish them all the best in their endeavours to do well.
Core Activity 4 – Community Relationships and Engagement of our Strategic Plan (2017 – 2020) refers to ‘developing a comprehensive Communication Strategy to enhance communication between the School and parents….’ As part of this, we are introducing the Communications Protocol for Parents/Carers and Staff. This document has been developed by a working party of Anglican Schools Commission principals, of which I am a member, and will be customised for each school. Our customised document has been endorsed by School Council and has now been uploaded to our website. Please click here to access the document. I hope that it is of assistance to parents/carers and staff alike.
Next term we will be trialling girls’ formal summer shorts as part of the school uniform. As this is trial there are only a limited number available at the Uniform Shop. Students who purchase the girls’ formal summer shorts will be able to continue to wear them as part of the summer uniform, even if the trial is not continued or the style of shorts changes as a result of the trial.
It is always with sadness that we farewell students and staff at the end of a term. To those families who are moving on from Frederick Irwin Anglican School, we wish you all the best for future.
The following staff members have come to the end of short term contracts:
Mr Jordan Jones – English
Mr Aashay Pratish – Science
We thank them for the work they have done with our students over the past three terms and wish them too all the best for the future.
To all of our school community – we hope that these school holidays are refreshing and we look forward to welcoming back our students and staff at the start of Term 4.
