We Want You!
We’re always trying to improve what we do at Wakefield School and for that we need to know what our parents and caregivers think about the teaching and learning that’s happening for your children.
So, this year as in the past we will be holding a parent information and strategic planning event early in Oct/Nov. We want it to be an event that attracts heaps of parents so we’re asking you to complete a very short - one question! - survey to tell us what kind of event you would be most likely to attend. We’re offering these options:
•An open day where you can spend time in the school and see teaching and learning in action.
•An evening ‘learning showcase’ where children share their learning with parents and teachers run workshops around some important programmes and new ideas.
•A strategic planning day of the type we’ve run in the past, with guest speakers, workshops and presentations from children. This would be either on a Friday afternoon/evening, or a Saturday.
•Another option of your choice - please specify.

Your support is hugely appreciated and we look forward to seeing you at our event later in the year.
A Big Week!!
Next week is huge for your child and Wakefield School, with both the Totara (senior) Production and book week happening. Please keep in touch with all the news about these events via notices, emails and Facebook. Once again the book week will feature the Scholastic Book Fair, a great opportunity to stock up on good value books, pre-purchase gifts for birthdays and Christmas (only 130 days to go!!), and activities both fun and informative, like Brucie’s Big Boys Breakfast, girls author sessions, and the fabulous book parade on Friday.
Dropping off and Picking up your Child
This is an old complaint but a real one. Please, please use the drop-off zone in the carpark correctly. Here are a couple of pics to make the point.
The drop-off zone is a drive-through only space. When you use it as a parking space it blocks the flow of traffic and creates hazards for children and adults walking through the car park. Your sensible use of the drop-off zone is much appreciated. Thank you.
Have a beaut week
