    Finish up to Term One

    It is hard to believe that next week is the second last week of term one!

    Please note that the last day for classes this term will be Wednesday 3rd April 2019. On Thursday 4th April there will be no classes due to the Parent, Student & Teacher Interviews. 

    Friday 5th April will be an inservice day for teachers, therefore there will be no classes on this day.

    There will only be two days of classes for students during the first week of next term. The first day of classes for Term Two will be Wednesday 24th April.

    Monday 22nd April will be the Easter Monday holiday and Tuesday 23rd April will be a teacher inservice day. Please note that Thursday 25th April will be the ANZAC Day holiday.

    Term One Reports

    You will be able to access the Term One Report via the Parent Portal on Friday 29th March after 4 pm. If you are a ‘non-residential’ parent you can, if you haven’t already, apply for the report (as well as other school correspondence) to be mailed to you. The application form is available from our office.

    This interim semester report is not as detailed as the Semester Report that will be available mid-year. It is designed to give you an indication of your daughter/son’s progress to date. I encourage you to take advantage of the follow-up Parent, Student and Teacher Conferences to help set the scene for a successful finish to the semester.

    Term One Parent, Student and Teacher Conferences

    A reminder that the meetings to follow-up the Term One Reports will be in the last week of term one on the afternoon and evening of Wednesday 3rd April (4.00pm – 6.00pm & 7.00pm – 8.30pm) and the morning of Thursday 4th April (9.00am – 12.00noon.) Please note that we expect students to attend the meetings with their parent/guardian and teacher. There will be no classes on Thursday 4th April to provide additional time for these conferences to take place. You are most welcome to use these meetings to meet teachers, discuss progress and address concerns. Instructions on how to book meetings will be emailed to parents / guardians.

    Open Day next Sunday

    Next Sunday 24th March, we will be holding our annual Open Day (11 am – 2 pm). This event is vital for our school community. It provides the opportunity for members of the wider community and in particular, parents considering secondary school options for their children, to find out about and meet the people involved with the quality education we offer at Saint Ignatius. I am so pleased that many, many students have already indicated that they will attend on Open Day to promote their school. This has been such a valuable contribution to the success of the day in the past. I have consistently received positive feedback about the interaction of our students with the visitors on the day.

    I would like to invite all members of our school community to Open Day. Please feel welcome to visit. Could I also ask you to extend this invitation to other members of our Geelong region particularly those parents thinking about secondary school options for their daughter/son?

    Best wishes,

    Michael Exton Principal
