ESL English as a Second Language

EALD English as an Additional Language or Dialect

Wishing our Churchlands families a happy start to the 2022 school year and a Happy New Lunar Year! I hope that the Year of the Water Tiger brings extra courage, flexibility, happiness and prosperity to you all. When I see your children, I’d love to hear about the celebrations and family traditions you have.

This time of year brings many fond memories of when I was living and teaching in Vietnam. We cleaned our home, brushed away negative spirits, prepared a feast and celebrated with friends. The flowers and lanterns looked beautiful in the streets. Sometimes we were lucky to receive a red envelope!

My support sessions will begin after I confirm the EALD Census. Eligible students will receive a letter home in the coming weeks. I look forward to meeting new parents at the school and catching up with some familiar faces too.

Kind regards and best wishes, and as always, happy reading!

Mrs Sasha Key (Monday/Tuesday)
