Katitjiny – Week 3 11.05.2020

Week 3 – beginning Monday, 11 May 2020

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mums and caregivers.

Last week we had an attendance rate of 75% and we are expecting to see the return of a number of families back to school this week. Although we still have restrictions to follow, things have returned to normal in the classrooms and the children are settled and happy.

We are not sure when parents will be allowed back on the school site but we have been able to welcome therapists and Department of Education personnel such as the instrumental music teachers and consulting teachers to support our children with disabilities and diverse leaning needs.

Semester One Reports

All of our children will receive a report from their teachers at the end of this term. However, these will look a little different to the usual reports. This semester there will not be a five-point scale used to report your child’s academic progress in each learning area. The teachers will write a comment describing your child’s progress and level of engagement in the learning area.

We expect to return to the usual reporting format at the end of this school year when we report on Semester Two.

The Application for Enrolment form can be downloaded from the Millen website: Please submit via email along with child’s birth certificate, Immunisation History Statement and proof of address, or drop into the school letterbox (at the driveway entry on Etwell Street).

Have a lovely week.
