Meet the Teacher Evening
The New Hope School 'Meet the Teacher' evening will be held next week on Tuesday 13 February. The evening will be held in the New Hope classrooms and will commence with a combined session at 6:30pm followed by an opportunity to hear from your child's teacher. The evening will conclude between 7:30pm and 8:00pm. This will be an opportunity to find out some important information about your child's school routines. There will also be an opportunity to book a time for your Individual Education Plan meeting.

Although it is not a requirement, it is helpful for teachers to be aware of a student's absence at the beginning of the day which can be done by including the class teacher in the email that you send.

Library Lessons
Library lesson times are as follows:

  • Class R (Miss Rezk's class) - Monday
  • Class H (Miss Hutchins' class) - Tuesday
  • Class F (Mr Francis' class) - Friday

Each class will be going to the library at 11am. In Library lessons, the students will have the opportunity to borrow books which can be borrowed for up to 2 weeks. To ensure that the books are well protected we ask that you provide a library bag for borrowing.

Year 7 Immunisations
Students in Year 7 recently received information about the Year 7 immunisations. These can be done at school or at your own GP. Please consider your child's emotional needs when making this decision.
