What a Great First Two Weeks!

Posted by year4


We have had a fantastic start to Year 4.  The students seem to be  settling in well and already trying to be ‘Better Than Before’  Mostly we have been focussed on ensuring students are happy, establishing routines and expectations, and giving the students opportunities to feel empowered in the classroom so that they have some control over their learning.

Hopefully we will get to meet all of you on Thursday 29 August at the Parent Information Evening.  In the meantime, can we please encourage you to ensure your child has all the necessary stationery items. 

Smart Cards

Today your child received their Discovery College Smart Card. This is a really exciting ‘rite of passage’ that all Year 4 students look forward to. With this card your child will be able to independently borrow books from the library and also sign in each morning when they arrive at school.  Over the next few weeks the Year 4 teachers will be reminding students of this, but the expectation will quickly be that students remember to do this on their own each day.


This weekend we would appreciate you helping your child find a safe place to keep their smart cards. Most students use some sort of wallet that is kept in their backpack so they can easily access each morning.
