The school has recently had it confirmed that it is now being funded for six classes. St Peters has 65% of its students in the years K-2 which attract a higher entitlement. This has allowed for some changes in staffing that will enhance our learning support and functional flexibility as well as provide staffing stability for the Dingoes. From tomorrow the school welcomes a new Learning and Support Teacher: Ms Ama deGraft Johnson. Ama will work with Ms Cusack on a transfer of the learning and support role on Monday and Tuesday before taking on the role full time on Wednesday. Ms Cusack will become the Dingoes full time teacher on Wednesday. Dr Lavitt will move into a non teaching role though he will still supervise years 3 to 6 and will work on key school initiatives.
This year St Peters PS will undergo the quality control reflective process of external validation. Based on the School Excellence Framework, this process will involve an external panel and much evidence to reflect on our current processes and where to go next.
St Peters Public School has its school photographs taken early in the year. This year these will occur on Wednesday 20 February. Envelopes for choice and payment were distributed 2 weeks ago. Please ensure these are returned to the school before Tuesday to allow the day to be organised.
Also on 20 February, the school will be holding an AGM meeting in the school library at 7pm.
