Transition Dates for 2018 Foundation Students
Beginning school is always an exciting time - for both the parents and students. We aim to support you in ensuring that your child enters school with confidence and ease. Melrose Primary School conducts an Orientation Program in Term 4 that will assist your child to become familiar with our school environment. An outline of this program has been sent out to all families that have already returned their 2018 enrolment form to the school. 
The key dates of the Transition visits are:
Tuesday 21st November 2017 - 9.00am-10.00am
Tuesday 28th November 2017 - 9.00am-10.00am
Tuesday 5th December 2017 - 9.00am-10.00am
Tuesday 12th December  2017 - 9.00am-12.30pm
Members of our school team will visit Pre-Schools over the coming months to meet our new students and talk to Pre-School teachers. This is an important part of building  positive relationships with your child and our school. 
Please contact the school if you no longer require the enrolment or have further questions. 
If you have not yet returned a 2018 enrolment form, you need to do so as soon as possible, please contact Wendy at the front office for a copy of the paperwork that is required.

Envelopes have been sent home with each student. 
Please ensure the correct money is in your child’s envelope (the school office will not  be able to provide change) and send it to school 
on photo day.
Note: Parents have the option to place their order online. Each envelope is personalized with student name and unique ordering code. 
If a student loses their envelope, their opportunity to order online will be lost and they will need to place their order by handing in a generic envelope obtained from the school office.
Photo prices range from $25 - $45

Parents wishing to have their children photographed together (with siblings who attend Melrose), will need to collect a Family envelope from the school office

PARENT OPINION SURVEY 2017

Thursday, August 03, 2017 2:49 PM

Parent Opinion Survey 2017
WE WANT OUR PARENTS TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK
Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents at each school.
It is designed to assist our school in gaining an understanding of parents’ perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

The survey will be conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 7th August to Sunday 27th August.
In line with Department processes, approximately 30 per cent of parents will be invited to participate in this year’s survey with the list of participants being randomly generated through our School Administration platform. These families will be contacted shortly and given further details on how to access the survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous.
The survey results will be reported back to our school at the end of September and shared with our wider school community in order to recognise the strengths of Melrose and to effectively plan identified improvements and initiatives moving into the future.

For further information, please contact Kellie Thorp via the school office or visit: http:// www.education.vic.gov.au/school/teachers/management/improvement/Pages/performsurveyparent.aspx
