2019 PARENT PAYMENTS

Please be reminded to ensure that your 2019 school fees are finalised as we want all students to participate in the great activities that remain for the 2019 school year.

2020 PARENT PAYMENTS

We are very proud of the educational programs, learning opportunities and activities that are on offer at McKinnon Primary School. We are focussed on providing your children with a comprehensive, fully resourced and up to date education in a clean and safe environment. We also provide rewarding educational experiences in programs such as camps, sport, excursions, incursions, swimming, library program etc. We strive to provide great memories for your children to fondly look back on. We plan for all students to access the curriculum and in all cases there are opportunities for support and extension as required. School Council has recently completed its annual review of the Parent Payment Policy. Parents are welcomed to pay their 2020 Parent Payments prior to the end of the year.

TRANSITION

As we look ahead to next year we are very mindful to ensure a smooth and supported transition for students as they move on to their next year level. As a part of this process we will be having a few transition sessions in coming weeks. The teacher who takes these groups is NOT the teacher of this year level or class in 2020.

FOUNDATION TRANSITION

Foundation transition comes to an end this week with our very special Teddy Bears Picnic completing the sessions. Last week the Year Five students shared their perspective of school life at McKinnon Primary. The group did an outstanding job. Thank you to Offek, Nancy Angelina, Tristan, Max, Justine, Aria and Vibhan. The parents were extremely impressed by how knowledgeable our students were about what the school has to offer.

We would also like to thank the Year Two and Year Five teachers who assisted the current Foundies during these transition sessions and the Year Five students who helped out in the classroom.

2020 HOME GROUP NOTIFICATION

On Monday 16th December, the students will meet their 2020 home group teacher and classmates. As a staff, we have focused on creating the most connected learning communities by ensuring teams are placed as close as possible. We are currently finalising teacher placement and will confirm this in the near future.

YEAR SIX GRADUATION

As we come to the end of our school year, we are looking forward to celebrating with our Year Six students as they come to the end of their primary school years. This event will be held on December 11th at the Moorabbin Town Hall. This is a very special time for our Year Six students as they look towards their exciting time of transition to secondary school.

SEMESTER TWO REPORTS

All students will receive their Semester Two reports on Friday 13th December via Compass. If you wish to receive a hard copy of your child’s report please inform the office by Wednesday 11th December.

THANK YOU MORNING TEA

The staff at McKinnon Primary School cordially invite parents/carers who assisted this year to join them for morning tea on Tuesday 3rd December from 11:00-11:45am in the staffroom.

RETURNING LIBRARY BOOKS

Returning books is as important as buying new ones so now is the time to check under your beds, on your bookshelves and generally around the house to make sure all books are returned by the end of the year.

THE 2020 YEAR LEVEL LOCATIONS

Below are the locations for each year level in 2020.

SWIMMING CARNIVAL

We had a perfect day for our swimming sports on Thursday. Students were dressed in house colours and cheering with pride!

Thank you so much to Dylan Hislop for organising and the additional support from parents and staff.

Another very successful event.

Have a great weekend,

Simone, Ben and Suzanne
