Professional Development Day - Date Change

17 December 2019 | General Interest

In preparation for the 2020 school year, the staff of St John the Apostle are investigating undertaking facilitated training in InitialLit, a Prep to Year 2 Literacy program. This program is evidence based and will assist us in catering for the learning needs of our students, particularly in the junior school.

Should we pursue this training, we require two sequential days at the end of the school year so any new staff for 2020 can also participate. In order to provide this opportunity the following changes to the school calendar need to me made.

  • The schedule Professional Development Day on Monday, 7th October has been cancelled. (This is now a normal school day)
  • In place of the above day, a Professional Development Day is now scheduled on Tuesday, 17th December.
  • The current Professional Development Day on Wednesday, 18th December remains in place.

These changes now make the final day of school for students Monday, 16th December. To assist parents with the collection of students this will be a full school day.

We apologise for these adjustments and thank you for supporting the school in its endeavour to provide the highest possible learning outcomes for our students.
