Final letter home to Parents of Snowy River Campus Students Term 4,
- 9 December 2016
Hello again and for the last time this term.
Here we are at week 9, and I think that students see that their time at the Snowy River Campus is now definitely finite! Mind you, many students are ready to leave. There are still many important tasks for us all to attend to, and I welcome the greater independence and personal drive I witness in our students, your sons and daughters. It is a delight to work with young people in our environment and see them “doing”! They just get on with the job now, for the most part, and set their goals and review their outcomes. They are finalizing their CLP work for when they return home, and the presentation day, when Principals, Council Presidents, representatives from the Department of Education and other key local stakeholders were here, was a triumph. I hope you can all cope with these skills and abilities upon their return, and that your sons and daughters use these skills appropriately?
Pre departure ceremony on Departure Day: SAT 17 DECEMBER
Thank you for contributing to the Term 4 Snowy River Campus for 2016. The “Separation Phase” of the Snowy River Campus Experience concludes for the community of Term 4, 2016 on Saturday 17 December, signalling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!
Join us for our pre departure ceremony on departure day and delight in their physical, emotional and personal growth over the last 9 weeks. Every student will have a significant and important opportunity to share in front of you and all the other parents.
The ceremony starts at 9.30am sharp so please do not be late. Arrive between 9.00 and 9.30am so that you can give your child a welcoming hug and have a bit of a reunion before the ceremony begins so that they can focus on their presentation.
If you are not going to be able to be at the departure ceremony please advise your son/daughter via email. There is nothing more despondent than a student waiting for their parent to arrive when everyone else’s parents or guardians are here! They will understand if you are unable to be here by 9.30 if you communicate this to them- it is the not knowing that they struggle with!
If any other travel arrangements have been made, please advise us immediately because until you assume in writing responsibility of your son/daughter again, we are entrusted with their care.
Enjoy the return of your wonderful sons, daughters or siblings who HAVE grown so much!
With every good wish on behalf of the Snowy River Campus Team,
