These are the key issues from the August 2021 meeting.
1. We are in the process of extending the OSHC program to 3 and 4 year olds. Under this program half day children can attend the specialised OSHC program until the end of the school day and then join the main OSHC program.
2. We have finalised the questions for the parents, staff and students survey which will be circulated shortly. These surveys provide us with valuable information to help shape our school and we encourage all parents to communicate.
3. The board will be meeting with other Montessori schools in WA in the coming weeks to discuss how best to collaborate to provide an effective high quality Montessori education.
4. The schools website is being redesigned with new videos and we encourage all parents to look out for these.
