Welcome to the final newsletter for the 2018
Wow! The year has gone so fast, it is hard to
believe that Term Four is coming to an end to
round off a terrific year! What a terrific year we
have had with so many significant successes and,
above all, our students achieving great results across the entire
curriculum. Throughout the year the children at Kingsley Park
have been recognised for their excellent talents and skills,
receiving many curriculum achievement and You Can Do It Value
awards each week. Congratulations to all of our students for their
contribution to the school year – I am so very proud of all of you!
Our final assembly is tomorrow at 1:30pm. At this assembly we
congratulate and farewell our 2018 Year 6 students who
celebrated their Graduation Night on Tuesday night at Mt Erin
Secondary College. There were highlights shared along with their
messages of wisdom to next year’s Year 6 students. They shared
their hopes and aspirations and finished off with two great songs.
We are very proud of our students and wish them all the best for

Sentral Parent Portal App
Flexibuzz will be phased out by the end of this year and all
communications will be sent out primarily through the Sentral Parent Portal App. Using
the Sentral App gives the school the ability to communicate information to each year level, small groups or
individual families, at the school's discretion. It allows for private messaging between parents, students and
teachers. Parents have the ability to report future absences and notify the school of daily absences. Whole
School emergency incidents are communicated through Sentral. Further down the track we will use it to
book parent/teacher meeting times. Please ensure you have the Sentral App on your phone, device or
computer and have created login details.
A reminder to drivers in
the school vicinity during
drop-off and pick-up
times - please
remember our children’s
safety comes first and
road rules together with signage
should be observed. The council have
been made aware of recent
concerning issues and will be
patrolling the area. Thank you
