FROM THE PRINCIPAL

A message from the Principal

 

Bringing down the house! 

What a massive week for the whole school it has been. We have enjoyed 4 amazing nights of song, dance and humour from our immensely talented stars and can I just say how impressed, awe-struck and grateful I feel to have been an audience member, a helper and, for just a few seconds, a part of the show. I know that so many family members, students, past students, and staff found this year's production of Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies to be great fun. It's hard to imagine, but it was 5 months ago that planning by staff started and it has been something that has occupied a number of staff almost every day of those months. I must say a huge thank you to the staff and students who gave up their lunch times, as well as before and after school to rehearse, build sets, plan costumes, source wigs, test out new puns ... the list goes on. It has been a huge undertaking but as one staff member said to me today: 'It's big - it's crazy, insane big - but it's just so awesome.' I'm so proud of all of our students who fought through fears, insecurities, tiredness, illness, and moments of apathy to be part of such a collective triumph. Thank you and congratulations. 

 

 

Rotary Speech Competition

Congratulations to Jackson, Max and Jaime for their wonderful efforts at the recent Rotary Public Speaking Competition. They spoke eloquently and with sophisticated arguments on their chosen topics and the Year 6 teachers who accompanied them were in awe of their poise. I wish to commend the students on their effort and achievement.

FAMILY STATEMENTS FROM THE OFFICE

Family statements with a current balance will be emailed to families next week.

Please take a moment to check your family statement. Family statements can have various balances at a given time depending on current activity e.g. camps paid by instalment.

Thank you to all those families that have paid or are paying through agreed payment plans their 2019 Essential Student Learning Contribution including the voluntary contributions of ICT, Parent Contribution and Building and Grounds. If you wish to make a payment, the details are on Compass.

Please find below the link for the 2019 Contribution Letter that was sent home to families outlining the fee structure at Ringwood North Primary School.

Some statements may show credit amounts on them, this can be for unallocated CSEF (Camps Sports and Excursion) funds, duplicate receipts and when a refund has been requested by a family. It is important that these funds (credits) are used by the end of the year. If you wish to use a CSEF or a credit amount on your statement against an upcoming activity, please call the office and the outstanding amount will be allocated to the activity and Compass will be amended appropriately.

If you have any questions please call me at the office.
