Term 1 – Week 3 Dear Parents, Change of Staff development Day 2012

The pupil free days for 2012 at Beaumont Hills will be Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd April. Students will NOT attend school on these two days, thereby allowing all staff to fully engage in these important workshops.

Last year staff at Beaumont Hills participated in a full two day workshop with international educator Lane Clark. This Canadian presenter divides her time between the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. She is highly regarded in her field and therefore demand for her services is at a premium.

Both OOSH and the Island After School Care facilities have already been notified and will adjust their services to accommodate families for these two days. Please contact these organisations if you need to use their services. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

The initiation of this partnership with Beaumont Hills commenced with a special staff development session after school in early March and was followed by an intensive two day workshop. When a school applies for a change of dates for their Staff Development Days strict criteria is outlined by regional office and must be adhered to.

Kindergarten’s first week: An exciting beginning to the school year was celebrated with the Kindergarten students of 2012. Their journey of lifelong learning began on Monday of this week. Enthusiasm and excitement were evident in our newest students and their parents. Beaumont Hills welcomes all new families to our school and hope that their association with our school is an exciting and positive experience.

Our working relationship with Lane Clark will continue this year in 2012. Because of her limited availability we will need to change our staff development days for next year.

The Regional Director has granted special permission to reschedule our staff development days to accommodate Lane Clark’s availability. Usually the first day of Term 2 and Term 3 would be pupil free days. This year however, the first day of Term 2 and 3 will be NORMAL school days where all students will attend class.
