Dear Parents, Caregivers and associated community members.
This term has flown by and now we are heading toward the April school holidays. Please remember that school breaks up on Thursday 13th April as Friday is the beginning of Easter. The students will be dismissed at 2pm.
At the end of term we farewell two staff members who have been part of Stuart High for the last year.
Becky Geldard is leaving to pursue travel plans. Becky has worked alongside teachers in her SSO role and has supported many students in a one to one capacity or as part of the class team. Thanks to Becky for her passion and commitment to Stuart High and we wish her all the best for her new venture.
Shanam Khurana has been with us for twelve months and has taught English, Maths, Science and STEM. Shanam has won a position as head of a faculty in another location. We thank Shanam for her conscientious commitment toward the students and wish her every success in her new setting.
We have advertised positions behind the staff who are leaving and hope to find successful replacements shortly.
Stuart High is getting closer to appointing a new Business Manager. We acknowledge the work that Jenny Wickstein has done in the interim in taking on some of the duties. Jenny has ensured that essential aspects have been carried out in an efficient and timely manner and for this we are very grateful.
The term has been hectic with many events taking place including camps, sporting events, community engagement, student voice activities and professional training for staff.
TWe wish all the students and families a safe and enjoyable Easter and school holiday break.
The AGM was held on 28th March with the current members attending and indicating their willingness to stand for another term. We welcome Leanne Middleton who was nominated unopposed as a council member. The roles of Chairperson and Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer will be voted on at the first general meeting for the year on Thursday May 18th at 7.00pm.
The Governing Council members are also exploring the possibility of doing fundraising activities for Stuart High with a twilight fete being put on the agenda.
If you are interested in joining the Governing Council please contact Stuart High on 86490400.
We are actively recruiting for new members to join the Governing Council where you can have your say in aspects of ongoing developments across the school.
Student Progress Reports
Teachers have been finalising the student progress reports for term 1. These reports are designed to indicate the progress your child is making across the core subjects and electives. This is shown by a tick system from doing well to needing help. The reports are designed to begin discussions between the teachers and parents or carers. Some reports will have a request for a parent teacher interview which we encourage parents to follow up. The reports have been posted.
Material & Services Charge
The Material and Services charge is now due. These can be paid at the front office between 8.30—4.00pm each day.
If you think you are eligible for school card please call into the office to obtain an application form.
