College Director's Report

Dear Parents and Friends of Carranballac P-9 College,
Welcome again to our informative newsletter. We do hope you find the information we provide of great benefit to your family and we look forward to any feedback you may wish to provide on the content and presentation of our newsletter. We are striving to grow our community connectedness in a range of ways: Newsletter, Web page, Compass, and Parent Sessions at the College.

College Parent Forum

Our next College Parent Forum will be held in Term 3 on Tuesday 7th August. School Council would like to hear from you so they are encouraging you to come up with ideas and questions you would like to put forward that can be addressed at the Forum. School Council will also be surveying families on areas of interest that you would like to know more about: ie - computers, Compass, Science, Reading and more. This survey will be distributed early in Term 3 in preparation for the Parent Forum in August. So please mark 7th August on your home calendars.
We are pleased to announce that 82% of our families are now connected to Compass. This is a significant increase this year and critical to your child’s education and safety. Reports will be distributed via Compass mid-year so it is essential that you get connected if not already. Our intention is to also open up more interactive parent friendly modules in Compass over the coming terms.
If you have not been receiving notifications in your email inbox, please contact the office to update your contact details.
Camp / Excursion Due Dates
To ensure the smooth operation of our College Camps, Incursions, Sport and Excursions we need to finalise all student details well in advance. The work that goes on ‘ behind the scenes’ is often complex and requires time. In future we are applying our standard operating procedures of requiring all forms and monies to be returned seven days in advance for excursions and incursions, and three weeks for camps. Students and families will not be able to seek late entry/lodgement for extra curricula activities.
Cleaning Celebration
On Friday June 22, we will be celebrating the outstanding service Haimen and Magda have provided to the College since 2002. Members of our community are invited to attend our school assemblies at which time Haimen and Magda will be acknowledged. If you have had a close relationship with Haimen or Magda and wish to join them for a ‘cuppa and cake’ you will need to register at a front office by Friday 15th June.
Have a wonderful fortnight.
