Thank you to all the parents who attended the Parent Information Night sessions. It is beneficial for both the teachers and the parents to have a brief opportunity to meet each other. All parents that were unable to attend should have received a term overview from their child’s teacher either via Szapp or as a hard copy. If you did not receive this, please contact the teacher responsible.
Throughout the year parents have a number of formal opportunities to meet with their child’s teacher. The first of these occurs during Term One. This year there will be a slightly different processes:
- Kinder and Year One will meet with families during Week 9 of Term One.
- Years 2 and 3 will hold parent-teacher meetings during weeks 5-6, Term One.
- Years 4, 5 and 6 will hold parent-teacher meetings during weeks 4-9, Term One.
These meetings are important and we ask all parents to endeavour to attend.
These meetings enable parents and teachers (and in some instances, students) to sit together to discuss how the student is settling in to school, how they are progressing and to raise any concerns that have arisen. Closer to the date parents will be given more information about the meeting format as well as access to an on-line booking system to make these appointments.
This is our formal process, however, parents can contact their child’s teacher at any time to request a meeting. Teachers contact details are on the MTS website.

Life in A-town
The city has committed to building a park for every 30 homes, a library for every 120 homes and a school for every 350 homes. If the town has 1862 homes, then how many parks, libraries, and schools are in the city? A new neighbourhood is being developed that could have as many as 675 homes. How many more new parks, libraries, and schools would the city need to build?
