Message from Sally
Welcome to the 2016 school year.
The year has started incredibly positively. Staff attended professional learning session on Day One and the Year Level Professional Learning Teams are all well planned and ready to meet your child’s learning needs. The classes are nearly established except for the Preps as they attended for the first time yesterday. All PLT's work collaboratively, this means sharing spaces and teachers. In The Flex, the year 5/6 students use upstairs and downstairs and the same is the case in The Comm. Across the school all spaces are being developed to become purposeful learning spaces, including corridors and shared spaces. Our experience of this way of teacing and learning is The Flex and The Comm last year demonstrated significantly improved student achievement and engagement.
We are still missing a few students; that is they have not attended yet. All students must attend by the end of February – Monday February 29th - or they become Government Unfunded students. If you know of a family who is intending to attend but have not managed to do so yet please encourage them to contact the school ASAP. Those who miss the Census Date - Monday February 29th will not be counted for Government Funding and their class allocations cannot be guaranteed.
We trust you enjoy your time at our school, and become an active NMPS Community member.
Students are supervised in the school grounds from 8.45 am until 8.55am, when the music plays, they are to line up.
After school the Yard Duty teacher will supervise the yard and the new KISS & DROP ZONE (when it is created by Melbourne City Council in Murphy Street) until 3.45pm.
All students are to leave the school grounds by 3.45pm unless they are at Biz e Kidz; this is due to the fact that Biz e Kidz now has to access both the North & South side playgrounds due to increased numbers attending the program.
Staff and their grade allocations and room numbers are available on the web-site.
