Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am filled with excited anticipation and thankful for an opportunity to have new beginnings. For
most of you I say, “Hello and welcome back” and to new school family members, “Hello and
welcome”, to the 2016 – 2017 school year.
Staff members are already in full gear, working to uphold our mission to „provide a safe learning
environment, that encourages and supports students to reach their full potential through
excellence in teaching, mentoring and collaboration.. My vision is that at Paget Primary there is
achievement for the whole child and every child. We continue to learn and grow as we create an
environment, throughout the school, that is caring, nurturing and stimulating.
Parents, as we build on open and respectful communication, through embracing an effective
home and school partnership, please ensure that you give us your updated contact information,
phone numbers, e-mails and mailing address. Remember, the students will each have an
agenda/planner in which you can write notes to the teacher. As we endeavor to use various tools
for communication, I am reminding you of Parent Connect (Ministry of Education), a web-based
form of communication. Several parents have also found this to be helpful in keeping up with the
progress of their child. If you need your password for this, contact Mrs. Paynter, here at school,
for more information.

It is a pleasure to introduce the staff for this year. As was mentioned in one of our PTA meetings,
the current year 6 has only one class group, as the P5 classes were combined. We entrust that you
will work with us as we help the members of that class to be an enriched class community. It is
with pleasure that I announce that we now have a reading teacher and a second learning support
We also celebrate the births of Mrs. Jessica Minors. baby girl in May and Ms. Gina Cann.s baby
boy in August. We wish these faculty members well with motherhood.
I am excited about this year ahead and the new opportunity for us to prepare our students for a
successful future! I look forward to the success of each student at Paget Primary School.
Mrs. I. Beckles
