Visible Wellbeing Feedback

Visible Wellbeing Feedback 2018


All staff and students have participated in our 2018 data collection this term to ensure our 2019 goals reflect our current needs and areas for improvement. Staff are using an inquiry cycle model to find out where to next in our Visible Wellbeing Learning. We know that our families are the most important factor in influencing the wellbeing of our children. We value your reflection and feedback on our 2018 Wellbeing teaching and learning at Albuera. This is your chance to tell us what is working for your family and how we can better support your child/ren to develop the pathways to wellbeing.

Please complete the survey and know you are making a difference by doing so. It  will only take a few minutes of your time.

School Closure 28 Nov reminder

Dear Parents and/or Carers



Public Sector unions have called a stop work action on Wednesday 28 November 2018.


As a result of the number of teaching and non-teaching staff participating in this action there will not be enough teachers on duty at the school to ensure adequate supervision for students. Therefore the Minister for Education has decided that the school will not open until 10:30am.

This will mean the following arrangements for the day:

  • Students can be dropped off to classrooms / school from 10:30am.  Teacher supervision will be provided from 10:30am until school begins in the usual areas (classrooms, northern and southern playgrounds)


  • Lessons will commence at 11:00am, with 2 x 20 minute breaks scheduled at 11.40am and 1.20pm.


  • Metro Bus Services will not be in a position to operate additional school bus runs to cater for schools starting later due to industrial action. Services will run at their normal times in the morning and afternoon.  Please check timetables accordingly


  • ‘Learn to Swim’ will not go ahead on this day.



Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding these arrangements. Further advice will be provided via our Facebook page and email as required.


I sincerely regret the inconvenience to parents and the disruption to the learning program for students; however, student safety is my primary concern.

School Triathlon Cancellation


Hobart Schools Triathlon Challenge Postponed


The following official release is to alert all schools that the Hobart Schools Triathlon Challenge at Bellerive Beach has had to be postponed due to a severe weather forecast. There are significant heavy rainfalls forecast over the next 3 days:


10-20m Wednesday

5-20m Thursday

20-50m Friday (There are also 35-50kph Southerly winds forecast on Friday)


The safety of students is the first priority and with this much rain it is not possible to ensure safety and to provide appropriate shelter from the rain as Marquees will not be able to be put up due the forecast winds on Friday.


This is not a decision I have made lightly with consultation and input from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Tasmania Police and SES. 

Please let your students and school communities know that the event is postponed.

Don't forget to cancel buses or arrangements you had in place for your attendance at the event

So school as normal for this week and I will be in touch again as soon as I can with rescheduled dates if it is possible
