Dear Samakee Community,
New beginnings or Move on Afternoon will take place on Thursday 2nd June from 13:35 pm. until hometime and the children will move-on to meet their new teacher and learn a little more about the coming year. Children who will be leaving Samakee at the end of this school year will join our RAFT Programme and will share reflections and begin to think about: Reconciliation, Affirmation, Farewells & Thinking Ahead to new experiences and new schools.

This year, Book Week will take place the WB June 13th.
During Book Week, classroom teachers and specialist teachers develop book-related activities, offer competitions and tell stories to highlight the importance of reading.
Next week, in preparation for Book Week we have invited a children’s bookshop to our school from Monday 30th through to Thursday 2nd, so please be sure to stop by, do some shopping and extend your child’s library!
