Class Selection for 2020

Early in Term 4, Teachers will be placing students in their 2020 class groupings. This will not be the transition grouping. A lot of time is put into creating these classes based on many attributes. Sometimes your child works best away from another student; if there is a student your child should be separated from, please send Simon Anderson a letter by Thursday 31st October 2019.
