Hello, Kew High School community. As we get back to normal operating procedures in our daily lives, the QNetwork is also ramping up its activities for 2021. For those new to the school, the QNetwork is a parents and carers’ group that supports the school in any way we can. Typically, we organise the catering for events such as the graduating students’ Valedictory Dinner, staff the kiosk at music concerts and organise our own events too.
So far in 2021 COVID prevented us from catering for the Year 7 Meet the Teachers night as we usually do. However, we did provide logistical support for the student initiated Ride to School Day. We have also acted as an informal focus group for the school on various issues, including gauging parental support for online student led conferences.
We would appreciate more people being involved in the QNetwork and would love to meet some more Year 7 & 8 parents and carers. Come to our meetings or sign up to volunteer. Get involved in the school community in a fun, informal way; whether you want to meet other parents, want to know what is going on in the school or want to contribute by volunteering.
In Term 2, we will be having a Wine and Cheese night on April 27 at 7pm in the VCE Centre. There is much to discuss, not least the ramifications of the COVID lockdowns on the lives of our students (which are still being felt). Everyone has a different experience to share and the QNetwork would be happy to hear about it.
