Stage Three

Stage 3 2019

Welcome to Term 3 of the 2019 school year, as part of Stage 3. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education and as partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, equipped and ready for learning
2) Completes all set tasks given by teachers (classwork, homework and assessments)
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life (Seesaw)
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
6) Knows that you are a partner in their learning experience at Ryde Public School.


Teacher Meetings 
In continuing to support your child, we ask that incidents or concerns are reported in an appropriate and timely manner to your child’s classroom teacher. Miss Salhab will oversee the coordination of Stage 3 for the remainder of 2019, as Mrs Payne will be taking maternity leave from Monday 12th of August. If you would like to book an appointment with your child’s teacher/s please send a note in or email ryde-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au with the following details: 

Child’s name / Class / Meeting in relation to ---- / Preferred Meeting Day / Preferred Meeting Time (am/pm) / Meeting type (phone call/face to face)


Payment of Fees
The office is currently contacting families about outstanding payments for Camp, Athletics Carnival, Planetarium, Author Visit and Muisca Viva. All money needs to be paid in a timely manner, when the permission note is returned. Online and cash is accepted. Excursions and incursions are additional enhancements of the curriculum which need to be paid for.


Term 3 is winter uniform. Please clearly label all items. There is no longer lost property kept in the entry of C Block, all lost property is put in the wooden box at the top of the school (near the junior toilets). The school hat should be worn before school and at recess and lunch. In one change, due to their outstanding commitment to wearing their shirts correctly, Year 6 students are able to wear their Year 6 shirt on WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY. 


Selective High Schools
Congratulations to the Year 6 students who have successfully achieved a selective placement for Year 2020. The current Year 5 students who have responded with definitely/considering or no note have begun the selective process for Year 7 2021. If you have changed your mind about your Year 5 child applying for a Selective High School please talk to your child’s teacher URGENTLY. For further information please contact Lynda Gerrand.
