Principals Message Newsletter 7 - 24 May 2017 

Dear Parents/Caregivers



You will see in this newsletter, information about our new School App which we hope will improve communication between school and our community.

Communication between home and school is one of the most important factors in helping your child succeed at school.   When a child sees that their parents value and understands what is happening for them at school, they are much more likely to engage positively with their learning.

The Mt Roskill Primary App will allow for this to happen more effectively.  It works through your smart phone and tablet.  Most people have a smartphone these days and we believe a vast majority of our families will have access.

The other very worthwhile way to find out about what is happening at school is through our website.  The home page has all of the dates for upcoming events and links to the Syndicate webpages which are regularly updated.  They have examples of work all children in that syndicate will have been part of.  This gives you a great opportunity to talk to your child about what they have been learning and support them with your interest.  If you haven’t had a look lately, it could be worth your while.

Finally, making a time to come in and see your child’s teacher is a good idea if you are feeling uncertain about how to support learning at home.  Sometimes a quick 20 minutes meeting can put your mind at rest and give you a better understanding.

Support your child’s learning at home can mean helping them with homework or on the Mathletics website.  The research tells us that having a discussion with them and showing a genuine interest is also very effective, especially if you are short of time.

You are doing a great job with your children.  They come to school ready to learn and that is down to the support they get from you.  We hope that our communication with you through various means helps you and makes it easier.

Your sincerely

Mike O’Reilly
