Dear Parents
Prep to School Transitions
Some children will be finishing at Woody Point ECDU to begin a 5 day program at their school for
term 4 2007. Graduation activities have been planned for Friday 14th September and Monday 17th
September 2pm. Families of children graduating are welcome to join us.

For children who will be enrolled at Woody Point Special School for 2008 an information session for
parents has been planned for the 19th September at 9.45.

Christmas Fundraiser
The Creative Playthings toy catalogue is a great fundraiser for the ECDU. We will be able to buy
much needed resources for our children with the money raised through this fundraiser. Please return
your orders by Tuesday 18th September.

Parent Room
A new parent room has been established as of today. It is located where the old Children’s Therapy
Service Administration block used to be. Tea and Coffee will be available and all parents are welcome
to use this room anytime.

School upgrades
Work will continue during the holidays. Ceilings that have been replaced will be painted and work on
the kitchens will commence.

Children of Prep Eligible age 2008
Individual needs of your child are of paramount importance therefore I will be contacting parents over
the next week to discuss the educational setting that would best suit your child for 2008.

Pupil Free Day for Prep Students
Just a quick reminder that Friday 21st September is a pupil free day for prep children only. All other
ECDU classes will function as normal.

                           PARENT SIGNING REVISION TUTORIALS
In Term 4, we will be offering signing tutorial sessions for those interested in revising and updating their
                  signing skills. Parents, caregivers and siblings are all invited to attend.

Date:           Begins Monday 15th October (fortnightly sessions)
Time:           9:15 - 9:45am
Venue:          Media Room (next to Parent Room)

If you wish to attend these sessions, please contact Julie & Stacey at school (3480 4333) to register. If
           you have any questions about the tutorials, please contact Sue & Emily on 3480 4346.
  We look forward to seeing you there. Updating your signing skills is a great, simple way to assist your
 child’s communication development at home. Signing is most effective when all the child’s communication
                                  partners can use signs too – and its fun!
