STREETON

Streeton Primary School‟s weekly newsletter Issue 21 - July 26th http://www.streetonps.vic.edu.au

Recently you may have noticed that there has been a great deal of publicity around the
importance of school attendance and the negative impact poor attendance can have on a
student‟s education. Whilst school‟s do not want students coming to school when they are sick, it
is important for students to attend every day. I have included an article overleaf, written by
Michael Grose where he discusses the notion that it is not okay to be away nor be late to school.

Social Media trial - Streeton Primary on Facebook.


Staff at Streeton are excited about implementing one of the most powerful communication
devices since the invention of the telephone - our own official Facebook page at
www.facebook.com/StreetonPrimarySchool. This is a great opportunity for us to move
forward in the way that we connect and communicate with parents in our community.
Research tells us that 70% of all Australians between the ages of 15 to 65 are using
Facebook. We also see that in excess of 80% of these Facebook users log in every day.
Placing our school communications in a space where our community frequently visits makes
a lot of sense.

We seek your support in making this trial of the Streeton Facebook page a positive and
worthwhile experience. We will be implementing a number of controls typically used by
organisations in establishing their Facebook presence, which means that the page will not be
as open as a personal Facebook page. Regardless of access, it does rely on all people using
the page to do so in a tone and manner that helps us to build a strong and connected online
Streeton community. We also want to be good social media role models for our students.

For anyone wishing to use our Facebook page, the best way to receive updates is to visit
www.facebook.com/StreetonPrimarySchool and click the „Like‟ button. This way when we
post updates, you will receive them in your page. This action will also allow you to
comment on or „Like‟ our posts. Please also read our Code of Conduct located on the
Streeton website www.streetonps.vic.edu.au - it is important that you understand how we
intend for the Facebook page to be used, and your responsibilities.

Have a great week,

Bronwen Lamond & Steve Allen

STREETON NEWS
JUST IN TIME!!!
On Tuesday and Wednesday night the performances of our school musical “JUST IN
TIME” were held at Montmorency Secondary College.

We would like to congratulate all students on excellent performances over the 2 nights
and a very big thank you to all the parents for giving their time to allow the children to
attend on both nights.

It was fantastic to see parents, grand parents and friends coming together over those 2
nights helping us to produce what we think is the BEST musical we have performed
EVER!!!

A big thank you to all those families who helped with costumes and props. To our
backstage helpers and teachers for all their support and enthusiasm. Without all of your
contributions the musical would not have been the great success that it was.

Well Done Streeton.

The Specialist Team.
