Term 4 Events
Key Dates flyer for Term 4 has been distributed to families today. I encourage parents to add the relevant dates
to your diary to ensure you are able to attend the many special events
planned. Formal orientation session
dates for Haileybury Prep students are also included on this flyer. Pre-Prep Parent-Teacher Interviews will focus
on Transition Statements, a Government Document required for all children
entering Prep. Pre-Prep staff look
forward at this time to reflecting on your child's learning throughout the
year. A highlight of Term 4 will be the
ELC end-of-year concert, to be held on Tuesday, 1 December, which I am sure the
ELC community will embrace and enjoy.
Sunsmart Policy identifies Term 4 as the time to remind families about 'no hat
no play'. Please ensure that your child
has their hat with them every day and that sunscreen is applied at the start of
been an eventful term for our Junior School students, with a strong focus on
delivering our academic program as well as the array of events such as Book
Week, House Music, Fathers Day morning, Year 3 Camp and excursions.
to all of the students who were acknowledged at today's assembly for their
efforts across the term. It was pleasing
to see so many students selected by their teachers for their achievements
academically, socially and in specialist areas of our program.
strong commitment to Social Justice continued to shine this term, with our
students raising over $3,600 for the Children's Cancer Centre Foundation. This is a cause close to our hearts in the
Edrington Junior School and we look forward to adding to this total in Term 4.
Term 4 Parent-Teacher Interviews
Junior School Parent-Teacher Interviews will be held on Thursday, 15 October,
from 4.00 – 9.00 pm. These interviews
are an ideal opportunity to celebrate the academic gains and achievements of
your child, discuss their social and emotional wellbeing and set goals for the

culminated with the Middle School House Swimming Carnival, held today. All students who participated should be
congratulated for their wonderful spirit and effort. This ends what has been a particularly busy
term in the Middle School and we certainly hope that all students and parents
have a restful break. Term 4 will
certainly be upon us soon, and will prove to be full of positive challenges as
our students prepare for end-of-year assessments and their transition to a new
year level. Years 7 and 8 students will
commence exam preparation and revision classes early in Term 4; we do strongly
encourage them to spend some time over the break reviewing texts and notes completed
throughout this term.
Term 4 Parent-Teacher
Interviews for Middle School will be held on Thursday, 15 October, in John
Twist Hall. The booking process for
interviews will be open to parents on Monday, 5 October, via go2.

PARENTS & FRIENDS
I would like to say a big thank you to our
Edrington community; without your help and support over the last term, the
P&F would not have been able to have all the fun days and activities for
our students. This is also a nice way to
meet families at the School and we welcome anyone who would to love to help.
We wish everyone a safe holiday break and look
forward to an exciting Term 4.
