From Ms Gabrielle Bransby, Acting Director of Junior School 

Welcome to Week 7. I want to warmly welcome our new 5 Blue classroom teacher, Tanya Buttling. Tanya is an experienced practitioner who has most recently worked at Woollahra Public School with an explicit focus on Stage 3. She has a true passion for the wellbeing and care of students. We are very excited to have Tanya join our Waverley Community. 

Reminders

If your son is sick, our first priority is for them to recover. We do not expect students to complete work if they are staying home from school because they are too unwell to attend. If your child is sick, teachers will not provide work unless it is for a significant amount of time. However, they do have access to online programs such as Mathletics, Reading Eggs and Education Perfect. Please only contact your son’s teacher for schoolwork if you are concerned they are falling behind due to an extended period of sickness

On Friday, Year 5 are participating in our Big Brother/Little Brother program at Queens Park. Boys will be dismissed at 3pm from Queens Park. Please discuss arrangements with your son. If they need to return to the Junior School there will be teachers to walk them back. If your son has training after school on Friday, they will be walked back to the Junior School for their regular session.
