February 2019 Newsletter

Welcome to Silverton Primary School's e-Newsletter.

Dear Parents,

It was great to see our students and families eagerly returning to Silverton Primary School on what has been a particularly hot start to the school year. We also welcome students and their families who are new to our school.

Both staff and parents have worked together to ensure it has been a wonderful start to the new year and each student has settled back into the routines of school.

It will be another busy year for the school with the final stages of our upgrade to occur and the installation of a new playground. Over the Christmas break the floor in the school gym has been sealed, the walls painted and a projector /sound system installed.  The most exciting thing was the reopening of the Silverton Drive entrance to the school. 

Our emphasis this year will again focus on the learning growth of each student, extending student voice and agency across the school and strengthening our wellbeing program, #SSS. Tomorrow, we have our first #SSS House Day. Students can come to school in their house colours for a day full of fun.

For children today, growing up in a digital age is a whole new world. Learning safe practices and strategies, and maintaining a positive digital reputation starts in the home. A cyber safety parent session has been organised on Wednesday 20th February, 6.30pm in Learning Centre 4.

Hope to see you all there.
