A Message from Mr Holden

With one week left of this term, I reflect on a very busy and productive few weeks. Alongside their normal lessons, boys have been involved in many other activities including music concerts, excursions, our literature festival and school camps to name a few. I thank all parents for your practical support of these valuable activities. In our final few days of this semester we look forward to the K-2 Music Showcase (tomorrow at 8:45am) and the Year 5 Learning Showcase (Thursday 22nd June at 6:00pm).

Semester 1 student reports will be available online from Thursday 22nd June. Please click here for further instructions as to how to access your son’s report. The report format identifies your son’s key strengths as well as areas for future learning in all subjects. We hope that this will allow for purposeful discussions at the parent teacher meetings scheduled early in Term 3 (1st August and 3rd August). Details of how to book a time slot for these meetings will be sent to you at the start of next term.

We are finalising enrolments for entry to the Newington College ELC scheduled to open in 2018. If you are interested in registering your son or daughter in the 3 or 4 years  program in 2018 and have not yet done so please contact the Admissions department on 9568 9337 no later than June 23rd.

I also write to inform you that for Term 4 of this year I am taking a period of long service leave. Wyvern will be in very good hands whilst I am away from school as Ms Sandra Gray, our very capable and experienced Deputy (K-3), will be Acting Head.                                                                                                                              

I hope that the upcoming winter break provides an opportunity for some quality family time and for boys to refresh and to recharge their batteries. I look forward to seeing boys return to school for Term 3 on Monday 17th July.
