Week 9 – Commencing 14.9.2020

Class Placement Requests 2021

Many of you have submitted requests for us to consider when placing your child into a class for the 2021 school year. I would like to clarify a few points to assist those of you who are completing or considering completing requests:

  • You do not have to make a request
  • Class teachers ensure every child in their class is paired with a friend the following school year
  • There are going to be some teacher changes in 2021. We do not publish these changes because there are still unknowns and a possibility class structures may change if enrolment numbers change

If you would like to discuss your request before placing it or you would like to discuss a request you have made you can email


Please do not park on the footpaths. In order to maintain a safe environment for our children we all need to work together and keep safety at the forefront of our minds. Thank you.

Use of School Facilities After School

At Millen we embrace and encourage families to stay behind for a play. The nature playground and the shaded playground (both located on the oval) are the perfect spots.

In the afternoons our cleaners have a few hours to clean the entire school. Therefore, the toilets will not be open after 3pm, and we ask families to please gather on the oval rather than the quadrangle.

Tips for Parents from the eSafety Commissioner
  • Engage in your child’s online activities – ask what apps, sites and games they’re using and make sure they’re age appropriate
  • Use parental controls on devices to help limit what your child is exposed to
  • Help them report and block upsetting content they see on social media sites or apps
  • Let them know they can come to you about anything upsetting they see online

I really encourage you to again explore the advice and resources on the national online safety hub:
