Parents Bulletins & Letters - Final

June 25 2017 - FINAL Letter From The Alpine School. (Altitude 1600m).

Letter Snapshot...

Hello again and for the last time this term. I am hoping this letter reaches you before your son/daughter has returned home.

Here we are at the start of our final week and I think that students see that their time at the Alpine School Campus is now definitely finite! Five or six sleeps they keep telling me. Mind you, some students are ready to leave. There are still many important tasks for us all to attend to, and I welcome the greater independence and personal drive I witness in our students, your sons and daughters. It is a delight to work with young people in our environment and see them “doing”! They just get on with the job now, for the most part, and set their goals and review their outcomes. They are finalizing their CLP work for when they return home, and the presentation day last week, when Principals, Liaison Teachers, representatives from the Department of Education and Training and other key stakeholders were here, was a triumph. I hope you can all cope with these skills and abilities upon their return, and that your sons and daughters use these skills appropriately?

Thank you for contributing to another successful term of the Alpine School. The “Separation Phase” of the Alpine School Experience concludes for the community of Term 2, 2017 on Saturday, July 1 2017 signalling the beginning of the “Reintegration Phase”!

10.00am – 11.00am

NOTE: If you arrive after 10.00am, please enter the school building quietly as presentations will be in progress
OR If you are running very late (after 11.00am), please call. It can be a source of concern for the ‘last’ students to see all their friends leave and have no idea why mum/dad is late. Please drive carefully.

If you intend your son or daughter having any other travel arrangements not with you, and have not already done so, please contact us regarding travel permission forms or other details.

Lastly, Please drive carefully, remembering that vehicle chains must be carried by law and they can be hired in Bright, Harrietville or Omeo.

With every good wish on behalf of the Alpine School Team

Mark Reeves (Principal) & Russell Shem ( Campus Principal - Alpine School)
