Preparing for a busy year ahead
Ettalong Public School staff members have spent their first few days back at school, preparing for the busy year ahead.
According to Ettalong Principal, Mr Colin Wallis, staff held their first school development day for 2017 on Friday, January 27.
"It was a most valuable day with staff participating in workshops and presentations around the new whole school spelling program, child protection and the Department of Education Code of Conduct," Mr Wallis said.
"Continuing professional learning for staff such as school development days is imperative to further enhance skills and improve students' learning outcomes," he said.
"We are fortunate to have staff at Ettalong so open and enthusiastic about quality professional learning."
Teachers will also be an extending a warm welcome to new and returning parents with parent-teacher barbecue and information sessions.
"These afternoons are a great way for parents and teachers to meet and to start to get to know each other and so strengthen the home and school relationship and team approach so vital for children's learning," Mr Wallis said.
