Dear Parents and Carers,

Across the year there are four “pupil free days” allocated to support school staff in professional development. This year at Unley PS the professional development will be in the key areas of:

– Writing – planning and designing appropriate learning for all students

– Assessment and moderation of writing to assist teachers gain a clear and consistent measure of students’ progress

– School Review: in Term 4 measuring our progress and planning for the future

Two of  of these days are in collaboration with schools across our partnership. We will communicate further information about this over the course of the year.

Our Governing Council has approved the following days: Wed 29 May, Wed 5 June, Wed 21 August, Friday 1 Nov.

There will also be one school closure day, usually held around the Royal Show time. Governing Council will confirm this date in the near future.

YMCA/OSHC is usually open on these days should you require this support. Please contact YMCA to register and/or make a booking.
