‘Meet the Teacher’ Evening for Reception to Year 7 Parents
Early in Term 1, we would usually hold a ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening at the College. Given the current situation with the pandemic, we are currently working through alternative arrangements. We recognise how crucial it is for parents and caregivers to have the opportunity to meet their daughter’s Home Class teacher and to hear about the year’s program and special features, and hope to have some information to you shortly about how this may look for this year.
Student and Family Information Sheets
To ensure that we have the latest student and family information details, particularly emergency contact information and who to contact in the case of an accident, it is very important that we keep this information up to date. In Term 1 you will be issued with a copy of the information we currently hold in our computer system. It is important that you check this information very carefully, make amendments as needed and then return it promptly to us.
Security and Visitors’ Badges
St Aloysius College, in line with many other schools and businesses, requires all people coming onto the school property during the school day to first report to the SAC Office in the main foyer to sign in and to wear a visitor’s badge whilst on the school property. This procedure operates from 8:45am to 3:00pm. During the school day it is usually only possible to enter the property through the Wakefield Street doors. If you are in the school grounds without a badge you will be asked to immediately report to the SAC Office. Please do not try to rush past the SAC Office desk without getting a visitor’s badge, even if the staff are a little busy, as the safety of students is very important to us and unidentified strangers pose a serious threat to everyone. Whilst we are sorry if this practice inconveniences parents and visitors coming to the College, we hope you will understand our reasons for implementing this procedure – the safety of our students.
St Aloysius College will continue to follow the advice of our governing bodies regarding our approach to COVID-19 and its potential impact on school events and other practices. While we certainly learnt how to ‘pivot’ quickly in order to hold events and activities on our calendar in 2021, with the developments in 2022 impacting our beginning of year we do approach 2022 tentatively but with the hope that we are able to proceed with key events, albeit with a likely chance of modification. We will continue to communicate with parents and caregivers as such needs arise. We ask that parents and caregivers continue to adhere to social distancing and other requirements when at school, but are keen to welcome families back into the classrooms to interact with staff as soon as it is safe to do so.
I hope that this is a successful year for all of our students and their families and I look forward to meeting you all at the various events throughout the year.
