2018 EQ Executive and Buddies

Thursday, March 08, 2018 1:05 PM
Congratulations to our 2018 EQ Executives and Semester 1 EQ Buddies. 
Students will be presented with their badges at Assembly tomorrow,  Friday March 9th.  
These students have been elected as role models for our school community for possessing the virtues of a Melrose Child (good manners, friendliness, courage, persistence, resilience, acceptance and compassion). Their peers and teachers have recognised them as people of good character who have the strength and courage to do the right thing and be considerate of others.  I look forward to working with them to further improve Melrose Primary School.

Parent and Teacher Interviews will be held on the 13th to the 16th of March. Times across the 4 days have been created to suit as many families as possible. This is an opportunity to develop the learning focused partnership between home and school. This is optional for Foundation students and families as they have recently completed a similar process to support their start to education.
What will be discussed?
1. The child’s relationship with staff and peers. 
2. Effort and attitude towards work.
3. How have they have settled in?
4. To the parent – Have you got any questions and what are your aspirations for your child? 
5. Check that the student handbook has been returned.
