Message from the Principal

Achieving Excellence Together








Dear families, 

To staff this week is known as ‘Achievement Week’ – this is because we are at the end of our current teaching cycle and students are completing assessments to demonstrate their progress this term. The information gathered by teachers this week gives us the opportunity to determine exactly how we can best meet the needs of every student by the end of the year as we look to prepare them for the next year level. Teachers also use this information along with the evidence of learning from across the semester to inform student End of Year reports which will be available to families in week 11. We are excited about the learning growth of our students already demonstrated this week and we invite you to celebrate their academic progress with them. 


Student Book Packs 2023

After receiving feedback from families this year, we have reverted back to including student book packs as part of the annual parent contributions. All families are asked to submit their orders for the book pack and make a contribution through Compass. Simply Login, select Curriculum Contribution and follow the prompts. We are asking families to do this before December 10th to ensure their child’s resources arrive at school ready for Term 1. 

 If you need further support or prefer to make your Parent Contribution in person, please see our front office.



Library Books

As we are now getting close to the end of the year, this is the perfect time to have a look around at home for library books and perhaps take-home reading books that may be hiding. We are always excited to see lost materials returned. Please return any Albanvale Primary School library books you find to the school by 10th of December.


Whole School Transition Day

All students will be involved in a whole school transition day on Tuesday 13thth of December whereby they will be informed of their 2022 grade, teacher, and classroom.  Teachers have spent many hours forming grades to ensure we meet the social,  emotional, and academic needs of all students. Tuesday the 13th of December is also the day that our current Year 6 students visit their new high schools. Our Year 6 students are currently involved in a transition program to prepare them for high school and are feeling  confident about attending their transition day. 


Prep 2023 Transition Morning

We will also be hosting our 2023 Prep Students for their transition morning from 9:15 – 10:30 with families asked to stay and join our New Parent School Information session where we will induct new families to the Albanvale Primary School community and they will get to learn about school routines and structures.
