Junior School Electives in Term 3

Electives Choices

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Next term all students across the school will be taking part in an Electives Programme. This is an exciting initiative running in many schools whereby the students are able to choose a learning path based on their interests and passions across a range of curriculum areas.  The electives will run from 11:40am to 1:25pm each week for eight weeks.  Groups will be a mix of Year 1 and 2 students and will be led by any teacher or teachers from across the school.

On the pages that follow you can find the elective options.  It is an exciting list and we know that the children are going to have a hard time with their top choices! Please read through the options with your child and discuss which elective would be best for them.  Then indicate on the sheet their top three options in order of preference. Once these have been selected, could both you and your child please sign the sheet and return it to your child's class teacher.  The teachers will then be placing the children into an elective group based on their selection.  They will be placed in one of their three options - please be aware that it is not always possible to give children their first choice.

PLEASE RETURN TO YOUR CHILD's CLASS TEACHER BY FRIDAY 29th June.
