Renee Hood - Teacher
We are very pleased to welcome Renee Hood to Ormond Primary School as she takes on a Year 4 class teacher role. Renee replaces Lorraine Bell, who is currently on long service leave.
Parent volunteers are required in preparation for the Twilight Market to be held on Friday, 25th of November. The event is a Parents & Friends initiative, held every two years, to build on community spirit in support of the school. The support of the wider Ormond parent community is essential for the success of this event.
It’s time to come forward and join the team!
Please complete the attached Volunteer Form and return it to school so that you can be involved in one of the many activities or stalls.
As a student incentive, each week the class with the most new parent volunteers will receive a Gold Ticket which entitles the class to a supervised lunchtime play at Wattle Grove Park. A chance to run and play off site supervised by the Principal and a volunteer teacher!
So far 53 students have been enrolled for Prep in 2017. Please encourage neighbours and friends who intend to enrol their children in any year level at Ormond, but have not yet done so, to contact Brodie promptly.
Planning for 2017
From the start of Term 4 the School Leadership Team will be working on the organization of classes, teacher roles and program budgeting for 2017. This will also involve a comprehensive student transition program during school time.
Please note that Monday, 31st of October will be a Curriculum Day when teachers will be involved in student performance data analysis and curriculum planning. This is a student free day.
