Teesdale Primary School News

August is Enrolment Month at Teesdale PS
A 2018 Enrolment Information Session was held on Wednesday, 2nd August.  This was an opportunity particularly for those parents with Prep students in 2018 to have a school tour and information session with our Prep teacher, Meg Andrews, and our Principal, Grant Rau.

If you were not able to attend the session and would like any further information or a school tour, please contact the school on 5281 5218.

Student Led Conferences
The conferences were held on Monday 31st July and were a formal and professional opportunity to discuss student achievements and learning.  This year the day was a modified school day, where parents and students attended for their 15-minute conference only.  The Student Led Conferences were designed to be a positive experience for all.

Congratulations Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program on 10 years
