    PRINCIPAL’S REPORT—WEEK 1 Welcome back to the 2016 school year to our continuing

    families and their children. We also extend a very warm

    welcome to our new families and students. All students in

    Years 1–6 returned on Thursday last week and have been

    placed in classes which will hopefully stay the same for the

    remainder of 2016. Our Kindergarten students commenced

    their first day of school on Monday this week and the

    teachers have been highly impressed by their positive,

    bubbly attitudes. The Opportunity Class has commenced at

    Armidale City Public School and we welcome students in this

    group to our school. During the next couple of weeks we will

    be looking closely at our student numbers to finalise class

    structures for 2016.

    We welcome to our teaching staff Miss Brit Lewis who has

    been appointed to Armidale City Public School to commence

    2016. Miss Lewis will be working across all classes, teaching

    and supporting students as required. Mr Graham Commens

    has been appointed to Armidale City as a permanent teacher

    through a merit selection process completed in Term 4,

    2015. Mr Commens will continue in the roles he was doing

    last year and we welcome him in his permanent capacity.

    Miss Katherine Eastlake joins us from Walcha Central

    School and will be teaching a Stage 1 class for 2016. Miss

    Eastlake brings a wealth of experience and knowledge and is

    looking forward to working with students at Armidale City

    Public School. Mrs Ridley (Stage 2) and Mrs MacGregor

    (Stage 3) will be continuing in their roles as Assistant

    Principals and Mrs Rubie (Early Stage 1) and Mr Townsend

    (Stage 1) will be relieving as Assistant Principals for 2016.

    concern with parents relating to their stage. All teaching

    I encourage all parents to make contact with their child’s

    teacher as soon as possible so all aspects of your child’s

    education can be worked on through a collaborative

    relationship. 2016 promises to be a another wonderful year

    for all students at Armidale City Public School and we look

    forward to working with the entire community throughout

    the year to see students achieve to their potentials.

    1/2KS CLASS NEWS

    Mrs Cordingley and Mrs Woods are pleased to welcome all

    the new little "Hatters" in 1/2KS to "Wonderland" this year.

    We have already seen some amazing and interesting writing,

    mathematical thinking, artworks and demonstrations of our

    You Can Do It keys.

    Thanks to all the families who had pencil cases ready and/or

    have sent in supplies. An organised learner is a happy and

    learning learner. We hope to see everyone all set up with

    their supplies by the end of the week.

    We'll kick off our regular homework next week in Stage 1

    and are excited by the variety of options on our grid. Keep

    an eye out for it!

    We look forward to working together with our 1/2KS

    families this year. As the Cheshire Cat says "We're all mad

    here." And as Alice reminds us, "All the best people are."
