As the lights begin to go up on houses, churches and businesses and the shops start to decorate, my thoughts turn to the celebration of Jesus’ birth at Christmas time. For Christians, this is a special time of year, a time of reflection and a time of joy as we remember that God sent His only son to earth to bless us and save us. I do hope that all families enjoy this time of family gatherings, feasting and spending time with neighbours and friends enjoying all that the Christmas season is about. You may like to enjoy a church service at Grace Lutheran Church on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. I know the congregation will welcome you warmly. May God’s peace be with you and your family at Christmas time and over the summer holidays.
Class Lists 2020Every year, we send out class allocation information in mid-January. The reason for this is we need to be sure of final enrolment numbers and staffing. To do it much earlier risks students becoming excited about a teacher who may move during the school holidays. I urge families to go on holidays and relax and we will send out your
child/ren’s class allocation during January. Should you be concerned about the allocation, please ring or email me and I will discuss the placement with you. Teachers spend many hours preparing class lists ensuring a good mix of students academically but whilst also ensuring friendship groups are maintained and encouraged. Unfortunately, any requests put in by parents at this late stage cannot be considered but I am happy to discuss class placement with you in January should you have any concerns.
