Homework Survey Feedback.

Dear Parents and Guardians. Thank you to all the parents who provided us with constructive and supportive feedback by taking part in our parents survey this week. 

We are very pleased to hear that you are happy with the quality of school work being provided to you and the teachers who are working very hard to prepare this work are very appreciative of this feedback.

We see that a lot of you feel that we are sending home a lot of school work so we will take this into consideration when we start our planning again next week. Remember, that you don’t have to complete all the work provided and that your child should just do their best and work at a pace that suits your family circumstances.

Survey

For any parent who is finding it difficult to get their child to engage in school work at home, remember we are here to help, please reach out to us through our school email address [askeabns at hotmail.com ] or directly to your class teacher and we will try to provide some advice and support. Stay safe!

Ms Mulally. Principal.
