From the Junior School

Welcome to this week’s newsletter, the final one for 2018, I’m Anthea Jamieson, Junior School Principal at Hazel Glen College.
What a big year 2018 has been. Our students have been involved in many many special events including Athletics Day, Cross Country, House Performing Arts Day, Book Week Footy Day, Walkathon, just to mention a few, all providing fun and great learning experiences. But more importantly, our students have had great opportunities and experiences in their day to day learning, provided in our classrooms by our excellent teachers.

Later this week you will receive the student reports on Compass. We look forward to you sharing this end of year report with your child. The report, along with the Key Assessment Tasks on Seesaw are designed to provide you with a very clear picture of your child’s progress. The report and the Key Assessment Tasks are to be viewed together to give a full understanding of the growth that has occurred in your child’s learning. All reports will remain on Compass and can be accessed at any time. Please read my written report next to this video link for a more complete summary of the final weeks this term.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Junior School staff for their dedication to each and every one of their students. I feel very proud to be a part of this special group of educators. They deserve a relaxing holiday to fuel up ready for another great year in 2019.

Thank you to all of our parents and carers for the way in which you embrace our culture and partner with us to strive for the very best outcomes for the children. We look forward to working with you further next year in your child’s educational journey.
Lastly, thank you to our students for making our jobs so worthwhile. There’s nothing better than coming to work each day and being greeted by happy smiling faces who are eager to learn and grow.
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, enjoy the holidays and stay safe.
