Background information for Home Group placement
If you have any background information that you want us to consider when placing your child into a home group then please pass this information on to your current grade six teacher or put it in writing and email it to Amy Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than the 7th of November. This includes priorities in terms of preferred sub-school or pairing of friends because it is difficult to accommodate both. Please note there is no survey for parents to complete this year, just the one that the primary school teachers will submit on your behalf.
