Principal's Report

28/01/2015
​Happy New Year and welcome back to the 2015 school year! I hope that everyone had an enjoyable holiday and that everyone is relaxed and ready to get into the school year ahead of us. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new students and families in particular to all of our new Prep students who have started school for the very first time this week. I look forward to the 2015 school year being a positive, rewarding and enjoyable journey for us all.
 
This year we welcome a number of new staff members to Kuluin. We welcome the following staff members to our school: - Ms O’Keefe, Ms Barillaro, Ms Watson, Ms Eaton and Ms Bray. We welcome back Ms Kelly, Mrs Morrison, Ms Cardelini, Mrs Hemphill, Ms Page, Mrs Brazier, Ms McLeod, Ms Russell and Mrs Moore who are returning to Kuluin for 2015.
 
Finalisation of our staffing does not occur until the eighth day of the school year which means that all classes are provisional and that there could be some changes to classes if our student enrolments change during the first two weeks of the school year. Once our staffing and classes are finalised our teachers will conduct their parent information sessions. Please accept our apologies with the SMS text messaging that was used to advise parents of their children’s classes for 2015. We are aware that there were problems associated with this and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused. Technical difficulties with this form of communication will require us as a school to explore other options for this year.
 
Our School priorities for 2015 are:

• Reading/ Writing
• Numeracy
• Upper Two Bands – this means increasing the number of high achieving students in NAPLAN
• Student Attendance
• SWPBS – School Wide Positive Behaviour

More information regarding our priorities will be communicated at a later date.
 
Assemblies:
School assemblies will be conducted on Tuesday morning at 9:00am in the school hall for students from Year 3 - Year 6. Our Prep – Year 2 assembly will be conducted on Thursday mornings at 9:00am. Assemblies will recommence in Week 2.
 
Meetings:
Could I remind all parents that our teachers are required to attend meetings every Tuesday afternoon. Please try to avoid impromptu meetings with classroom teachers particularly on Tuesdays. There are also many meetings that occur before and after school for many of our staff members. If you need to discuss an issue with your child’s classroom teacher it is preferred that you make an appointment so that the matter can be discussed in a timely manner.
