Curriculum Meetings are taking place in the school during the week starting September 25th.

These are adult meetings so, smaller children need to be looked after elsewhere for the duration. The meetings cover general topics so individual questions cannot be answered. Teachers will outline some of the material that will be covered this year and how their class is organised. Parents tell us that they find these meetings very useful. Thank you to the teachers for putting so much into the preparation and presentation of each meeting.

Individual Parent-Guardian/Teacher meetings: Each family will get a formal opportunity to meet with each teacher individually in November to discuss your own child’s progress.

In the meantime, if you have a concern, you are always welcome in North Bay. If it is a small matter, drop in at the end of the day or in the morning; otherwise please make an appointment with your class teacher so that we can arrange supervision and so that the teacher can give you her/his full attention.

Building improvements-Roof!

Hi everyone,

The Department of Education has given a grant to the school to replace and insulate the roof. We were informed in May 2017 and because of the long process involved in tendering for consultants and contractors the start date of the work is as yet unknown. We anticipate that it will begin in late August and run into September and October. All appropriate safety measures will be taken and we have been assured that there will be minimal disruption to the school day.

We are looking forward to the benefits for our children in a warmer more cosy building.

Summer 2017

Have a very Happy Holiday everyone-Enjoy the sunshine when it arrives!

The calendar has been updated for 17-18. I have attached copies of the booklist, the teacher allocation, and two explanatory notes about standardised testing. The notes are basically the same but one explains the standard score that is used for classes first to fifth and the other explains the STEN score that is used in the sixth class report which will be sent on to the secondary school in September.

Booklist 2017-2018

Staff allocation 17-18
