Welcome to the 2013 school year at SIDE (Primary). Term One begins on 4 February and finishes on 19 April. It is an 11 week term broken with a long weekend on 4 March and a five day break for Easter beginning on 29 March. To our continuing families, it is wonderful to have you with us for another year and to those of you who are new to SIDE, hi from all of us.
Not only do we have many new students and families but we also have some new staff members. Maria Davitkovska and Mary Obrecht will be sharing a Kindergarten to Year Three class. Maria has come to us from Mt Claremont Primary School where she taught Pre-primary. Mary has been with SIDE for many years as a teacher of Italian.
Richard Charlwood is also a language teacher at SIDE and is joining the Primary team to work with the Years Three and Four class. Richard also teaches Indonesian.
Jenny Locke and Mandy de Vos organise the Parents Online blog. They welcome your participation and feedback. Have fun, enjoy whatever you are doing and wherever you are. Our teachers are here to support you and your child(ren). We do expect your child to complete their school work where ever you are. The teachers have lots of ideas how you can manage travel and school work and will support you in any way they can.
I look forward to reading your posts.
