Term 2 Week 1

Wow! What a busy start to the term. Students settled back into the routine of learning as well as having extra activities to complete I preparation for our walk to TTG Field of Remembrance on Friday.  All students showed tremendous respect throughout the service and I am very proud of all our Ardtornish students.

Year 7's will be walking to Modbury High School on Monday for a one and a half hour transition session. We use Modbury HS to introduce Year 7 students to secondary education. All students are expected to attend even if they are attending a different high school.  Please ensure parents sign the transition note in students diaries.  Contact the school if you have any inquiries.

Thank you to those parents/caregivers who have paid for Footsteps and the performance Journey to the Centre of the Earth which is on Wednesday.  If you have not yet paid, please ensure you pay or make arrangements with Michelle Kraniac in Finance before Wednesday for both activities.

Students are busy trying out for various SAPSASA sports. The Hockey carnival is on Wednesday.  Soccer, Netball and Cross-country are all coming up in the next few weeks.  Please talk to your child about not over-committing themselves. All work must be up to date or students will not be allowed to attend sports events.  Please contact me if you have any concerns about your child.

I am aware I have not had 3-way interviews with a number of you due to my accident last term.  Mid year reports will be issued at the end of this term, however if you feel you would like to talk to me about how your child is travelling, I am available until 5:00pm Monday, from 4:30 - 5:30 Wednesday.  Please arrange through your child's diary a time you would like to meet. Alternatively, parents who have been unable to attend have 'conducted' their interview via email.  If this is more suitable, please email me with any questions to

Have a good weekend.
