Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am writing to you to confirm what classes the school will offer in 2013.

Recently, a survey was conducted of Class 6 parents and guardians about their intentions for where they intend their child to be in 2013. Although some parents are still considering their options it appears at least 50% of Class 6 children may stay on for Class 7 in 2013.

In light of that, the school wishes to confirm that a Pilgrims Class 6 / 7 will be offered in 2013. The Pilgrim class will wind up at the end of 2013.

Parents and guardians who have not already considered options for their children after 2013 are urged to look at the alternatives and make enrolments enquiries.

In light of the state government’s decision to incorporate Grade 7 into secondary schools, The PerthWaldorf School (Ph: 9417 3638) is looking at plans to expand its class 7 intake. So that is an option for current Class 5 children in 2014. This year 5 Silver Tree graduates entered class 7 at Perth Waldorf School and the reports so far are very positive with regard to the transition and the bus service from the Hills to that school.

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) programmes at various state High schools are also an option with application deadlines in March 2013 for 2015 Year 8 intake. Our students have been very successful at gaining places in these programmes.

Thank you for your support over the years of the school. Please feel free to contact me via the office if you have any queries about this or any other matter.

Yours sincerely,

Bruce Lee
School Administrator
