Year 2 excursion to Como House
We are now well into the final quarter of the school year and we are rolling into Week 6. It seems like the festive season has already begun with Diwali, Halloween, Spring racing and end of school year events.
At the start of this term we introduced a new management system called Compass. Many of our families with secondary school students will be familiar with this system. Over the next few months more and more of the features will be offered including on-line permission forms and bill paying facilities. To ensure you hear about it, please ensure we have your correct mailing address. You should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from your best contact email address if you wish to be sure. This school newsletter will also have comprehensive information as it is applicable and timely. If you do not receive an Errol Street News every fortnight please subscribe from our website link here.
Biz-E-Kidz is also moving forward into the online work platform with our staff being paid via an electronic time sheet. We are looking into online enrolment processes too, but not yet. 2017 Biz-E-Kidz enrolments open on Friday 11th November for ONE WEEK; they close on the 18th November. They must be delivered to one of the coordinators - Sharon, Ace, Kelly or Eva only. We are confident that demand will be met following the Priority of Access Guidelines, and in negotiation with families and the committee.
Foundation Year 2017
Our first 2017 Foundation transition morning was held last Friday with approximately 70% of the enrolled students attending. All students were expected to attend to confirm their place. At this stage we will have six Foundation classes next year. With the new relocatables on site and operational we will have a FOUNDATION WING & A HALF!
Foundation Parent Information Session
On Thursday 10th November 6.30 – 7.30pm, in the Downstairs Flex Theatrette, we will conduct an Information session. The evening will cover topics such as Biz-E-Kidz enrolment forms, daily school operation and organisational processes will be explained and discussed. The final transition day is Friday 11th with families being invited to attend a special morning tea arranged by current families. This is for Foundation Parents only.
Also, a final reminder if you will not be returning to NMPS and are not in Year 6 please contact the office with your child's name, class and relocation details.
