On Entry Assessment Program
During Weeks 3 – 6 of Term 1 your child will be participating in the Department of Education’s state-wide On-entry Assessment Program. The main purpose of the program is to provide teachers with an opportunity, early in the year, to collect information on the essential literacy and numeracy skills and understandings of each child in their class. This will assist your child’s teacher to develop informed and intentional teaching for play-based programs, designed to foster each child’s learning, reflective of individual needs. Information sheets have been made to help parents understand the testing.
Please see theYear 2 OnEntry Testing Parent Information and the key messages sheet for more information.  Additional information can also be found by accessing theOn-entry Assessment Program website

About the teacher -

Welcome to Year 1/2!

I am your child’s teacher, Miss Ennis.

I moved to Kalgoorlie from Perth and have enjoyed exploring the unique landscape and cultural experiences on offer within the community. I am actively involved in the non-profit organisation of SAFE Kalgoorlie and regularly volunteer my time to assist animals in need.

I am very excited to be teaching Year 1/2 this year and thrive to provide my students with a fun, interactive and memorable learning experience. I encourage students to bring healthy snacks to eat throughout the day and ask that students come equipped with a water bottle and hat to ensure they can comfortably participate in daily fitness activities. Please feel free to drop in and touch base at any point during the school year. I look forward to meeting you and your child! 

 Parent/teacher meetings can be arranged by phoning or emailing the school to make an appointment.

Room 21 - Mrs Sue Ung

About the teacher -

 

Hi my name is Sue Ung and I will be your child’s teacher this year.

 

I have taught for 8 years in total where 3 of those were in New Zealand. I moved to Kalgoorlie in 2011 and I am very proud to now call it home. I have 4 children of my own aged 13, 11, 8 and 4 and they are a big part of who I am. 

In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out at the local lakes with family and friends, cooking, gardening and glamping.  

I encourage a healthy atmosphere at school and welcome your child to bring in a crunch and sip snack to munch on as the day progresses as I like to do so as well.  

As a teacher of Room 21; I will provide the love, support and guidance for your child ensuring that they feel safe and secure to learn and achieve.

I like to ensure that communication stays open between parents and myself, so if you have any issues, concerns or feedback that you may have please feel free to come and have a quick chat with me. If you would like more time please feel free to arrange an appointment by coming to see me, phoning or emailing the school. I am available most afternoons after school.

 
I am very excited about teaching Year 2’s and am looking forward to working with you and your child and facing the challenges and adventures that we are going to share in 2017.

About the teacher -

Welcome to year 2!

My name is Melissa Trajkoski (Tray – kos – ki) and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I moved from Perth to Kalgoorlie last year and I have fallen in love with this amazing community.

I strive to create a supportive, yet challenging, learning environment that caters to all of the children in my class. I like to promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage children to bring brain food (cut up fruit or vegetables in a container) into class, so they can eat throughout the day.                                             

 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking and playing with my puppy, Ace.

I look forward to the year and getting to know your child. I encourage open communication between myself and parents/caregivers. I am available most mornings and afternoons for a quick chat. If you would like more time please feel free to arrange an appointment by coming to see me, phoning or emailing the school.

About the teacher -
 
 
Welcome to Year 2!
 
 
My name is Natasha Sheppard and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I moved from Perth to Kalgoorlie in the middle of last year and have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about this amazing town. 
 
In my spare time I enjoy catching up with my family, cooking, reading and four-wheel driving. I encourage students to bring pre-cut fruit or vegetables in a container for Crunch and Sip. I ask that students come to school with a water bottle so they are able to stay hydrated during the day.
 
I believe communication is extremely important and therefore encourage parents/caregivers to have a quick chat with me before or after school. If you would like more time please feel free to arrange an appointment by coming to see me, phoning or emailing
the school. I am available most afternoons after school. 
 
I look forward to a fantastic year getting to know your child and watching them thrive!
