Elementary Update – February 7th, 2020

Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal

Dear all,

We have had another great week at ISY.

Please see a note below regarding report cards.

See the photos below from a wonderful 5V assembly. We had performances from 2M, KGH, and 3L. The students also watched a video from the recycling club.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Sandy Sheppard



We would like to ensure all our students are able to access our virtual platforms for home learning. Therefore, we will be carrying out a drill on Tuesday the 10th February to test our platforms.

The drill will include home learning work to be done via our virtual platforms and teachers will send information via Seesaw on Tuesday. I will also send out an email with more detailed information early next week.



We have lots of important events coming up:


12th February – No school

15th February – International Day

2nd March – No school

6th March – Elementary Field Days

6th March – Gala

7th March – Family Fun Night

13th – 17th April – Holiday



Report cards are now live and ready for you to view on Power School. If you have any problems please contact the Elementary School office.

There are no formal parent conferences in this quarter, however, you are welcome to contact your class teacher should you like a meeting time.

The next parent conferences are in April.


The students continue to enjoy the sandpit especially when they get to add water.
