Dear Parents

Thank you to all the parents who braved the inclement weather to attend last night’s Cocktail Evening. We trust that following the earlier meetings with your child’s class teacher and reading therapist, that new parents are feeling a bit more settled and members of the Japari family.

Once in the hall, parents were able to partake of the delicious refreshments and meet and socialise with the other parents. In addition parents were introduced to the Senior Staff Team and were also able to meet with the staff and our supportive counsellor, Suzanne Atie. Suzanne has run a very successful Parent Support Group for the past four years. Our Parent Support Group is currently on offer to all parents, either through individual counselling sessions or by attending the monthly parent support sessions on a Wednesday evening. Invitations for these sessions are sent out via the newsletter and the d6 Communicator. Our next parent support meeting is next week, Wednesday 08 February, and the topic is “my child is different-now what?”

Parents were also asked to join our wonderful PTA. A school’s PTA plays such an important role in our school. Through their activities funds can be raised that will benefit all our children. The best part of joining the PTA, is to be involved in your child’s school life. Our PTA meet once a term and plan a fun event for that term. Meetings are short and we share many different ideas and concepts that could be very good for a PTA function or event. Thank you to those parents who joined at the Cocktail Evening. Details of our first meeting will be published shortly.

Congratulations to the Grade Sevens who returned from their recent Leadership Camp to Konka Camp. We look forward to the induction as Monitors and Mentors at their Induction Assembly scheduled for Thursday 16 March. They have already been measured for their blazers!!!

Regards

Steve Rees

Headmaster
