Assembly/Scripture Changes

You may have heard that we will be moving our Assembly and Scripture times. In everything we do, we place student needs at the centre. We are always looking at new and innovative ways in which to maximise learning opportunities. Significant research supports teacher belief that morning sessions are prime learning times, when student engagement is usually at its highest. Moving Assembly and Scripture from the Friday mornings will allow an extra full morning a week for literacy learning. This change was overwhelmingly supported by our staff. Ms Winn spoke with the P & C at the evening meeting last Tuesday and received their support also.

Scripture will now be held on a Friday during the middle session. Primary lessons will be held from 12.30 – 1.00pm and K – 2 lessons will be held from 1.00 - 1.30pm.

Assembly will now be held at 2.15pm on Monday afternoons (commencing next Monday 27th February). There will be NO Assembly this Friday, 24th February.

We recognise that the change to Assembly may cause inconvenience for some families, however I am sure you will appreciate our reasons for doing so. Your support and understanding with this is very much appreciated. 

I would also like to acknowledge all of our fantastic Scripture teachers who have been most obliging in changing times. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
