Message for Kindergarten Parents and Carers
Gifted and Talented Education - GATE
Included in the last newsletter (11 February) there was information regarding a Certificate of Gifted Education Course - GERRIC.
Within this information we asked for parents' permission to have an additional Staff Development Day (SDD) at the beginning of Term 2 so all our teachers at WPPS would be able to complete this intensive course to enhance your children's learning. This would mean that the students would come back to school on Wednesday 1 May and there would be no SDD in Term 3 - children would return to school on Monday 27 July.
A decision needs to be made by next Tuesday 26 February. Would you please send a quick email to the school firstname.lastname@example.org as to whether or not you approve of this change.

Criteria for joining the team was firstly age based with preference given to older students who were interested. We then looked for students who displayed an interest in and knowledge of the creative and critical thinking skills we will be exploring in our sessions.
