It is a busy time of year here at Huntingdale. Teachers are busy finalising assessments, writing reports, working on grade lists, preparing for the Christmas concert and normal classroom teaching duties!
2019 Planning and Grade Structure
The Leadership Team have looked at our enrolments for 2018. Based on our numbers, provision for the introduction of a 50/50 Bilingual Program in Foundation and Year 1, room allocation, student learning needs both educationally and socially and our Student Resource Package, we will be having the following class structures in 2019:
- Foundation- 3 classes
- Year 1- 3 classes
- Year 2- 3 classes
- Year 3 & 4- 4 classes
- Year 5 & 6- 4 classes
If you are planning on moving interstate, to another country or away from Huntingdale and are yet to notify the office please do so as soon as possible. Numbers have a significant bearing on our planning and we appreciate early notification where possible. If you hear of anyone wishing to attend Huntingdale in 2019 please send them to the office to enrol.

Volunteers Morning Tea
Each year we celebrate the great work from our parent volunteers in the school. We are holding our annual Volunteers Morning Tea in the staffroom from 11.00-11.30am on Thursday December 6th to thank you for your contributions to the school. Whether it’s participating in literacy sessions, volunteering on camps or excursions, attending sports days or participating in ICU Weeks, you enrich the experiences of the children at our school. If you are able to attend the morning tea, please let Gill know at the office.
