A Message from Mr Holden

As we approach the last week of the term, we are looking forward to welcoming parents into the school to share in some grades’ Learning Showcases and performances, including tomorrow’s K-2 Music Showcase. Your sons very much look forward to these occasions and we also highly value the special connection and partnership built by such activities. I thank you for making time in your busy schedules to attend these events.

Semester One reports will be available on Friday 18 June at 4.00pm. At the start of Term 3 there will be an opportunity to meet with Wyvern teachers (via Zoom) to discuss your son’s progress and areas for further development. The dates for the Parent Teacher Interviews are Tuesday 20 July (Week 2) and Tuesday 27 July (Week 3).  A link to book your interviews will be sent to you in Week 1 of Term 3.

At the end of this term Miss Aimee Parkinson will be leaving Wyvern to take up a teaching position at the Tokyo International School. Miss Parkinson has made a wonderful contribution to boys, parents and colleagues over the past seven and a half years, and in particular, has been instrumental in our implementation of the ‘Big Write’ approach to assist literacy development. We wish Aimee every success as she starts a new phase of her teaching career in Japan.

As this will be the last newsletter of the term, I thank boys and teachers for their excellent efforts this semester, as well as parents for your steadfast support. I wish you all an enjoyable long weekend, and then at the end of next week, a restorative winter break. I look forward to seeing boys returning for Term 3 on Monday 12 July.
