Principal’s Message Term 3, Week 3

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Last week we had learning conferences, there was a strong turn out from our parent body, which was great. Supporting the school in turn supports your child. We are looking forward to a wonderful term 3 at Fairfield School.

As you are aware sports is beginning again. We have many of our students participating in the weekend.

A few of the neighbours have connected with me asking me to request that cars in the morning and afternoon do not park in front of their driveways. There have been times when they are unable to get out of their driveways; they are are worried in an emergency they will be unable to leave their house.


This year we are starting the process of using PB4L at our school. As a part of this, we are wanting to know your thoughts on our school values, where they are now and where we could take these in the future. Follow this link and fill out the questionnaire. We will be running a draw for someone to win a Pak n Save voucher! This video shares more information about PB4L at Fairfield School.
