Dear Parents and Carers

Uniform Shop Helpers Needed.

Tina is looking for some people to help her with the uniform shop on Friday 1st Feb 2019.

Your help is needed from 8.45am - 11.45am. You will be helping to give our pre ordered uniforms or helping to sell items to other parents.

It really is easy, it just gets really busy and a few people to help would help immensely.

She will also need a couple of parents to help with the Leaver uniforms from 11.45am -2.15pm.

Secondhand Dresses

There are quite a few parents who are interested in getting a secondhand dress for their child.

If you have one that no longer fits your child, or you aren't using it anymore, would you be so kind to donate it so we can help another family get one for their child.

If you can help with uniforms in Feb or you have a dress you can donate, please contact Tina on 0417 184 486 to let her know as soon as possible.

Thank you!

We are aiming to broaden our schools in the local community to round out our children’s education. Please recommend to the Kelmscott Primary School Board people in our local community who you feel would be an asset to our school community.

Who do you know who would bring knowledge, experience, passion and diversity to our school?

This might be someone who is active in the Arts, in Sport, in Politics, in Sustainability or the Environment, in Local History, an Indigenous Leader, an Educator or a Mentor. The list is endless.

A person such as this would add value to the life experience of our students and would support and upskill our teachers and staff. Please leave a message for the Board with the school office (9496 9300) or by emailing us via the school email: kelmscott.ps@education.wa.edu.au

Annual Parent Night
08/06/2018
7:55

Dear Parents,

This year, all teaching staff have been further increasing their use of Seesaw as a form of communication for reporting and celebrating your child’s progress and achievement.   We are very pleased with the high rate of participation by so many parents across classrooms who are enjoying receiving Seesaw notifications and being able to view the posts, make comments and re-view later.   This work by teachers to manage Seesaw occurs during class time and after hours.  We need to make sure as a community that teaching staff are not unnecessarily overloaded especially when it comes to duplication of work.

Over the last three months, the teaching staff have discussed the duplication of the work they are performing now with Seesaw and the work they have traditionally prepared for each Annual Parent Night.  That is, teaching staff were going to be doubling up and repeating what they are communicating through Seesaw.  The school has also noticed that parent participation at our Annual Parent Night over the last two years was steadily dwindling.

So, after a consultation with all teaching staff it has been decided to no longer conduct an Annual Parent Night.  The opportunity for a face-to-face meeting with your child’s teacher at any time of the year, will always remain by making an appointment.  Furthermore, the reasons for this change has been shared with the P&C and the School Board.

All staff are fully aware about ensuring Seesaw is regularly managed.  Please ensure you keep in contact with your child’s teacher about any concern by dropping in to have a quick chat, or for larger issues please make an appointment.  Also, if you are yet to connect with your child’s class via Seesaw, please see the teacher.

With your cooperation, we look forward to the use of Seesaw and parent-teacher meetings becoming a strong feature of the Kelmscott PS community.

If you have any concerns about this change please email Neil.Spence@education.wa.edu.au or phone 9390 8011. 

Regards,

Neil Spence
