Year 6 DVD

Dear Parents of Year 6 students,


Yesterday we sent home notes about a concern with the material on the CDROM  prepared by the parent committee who organised the Year 6 farewell. I regret that the letter was sent out prematurely. The matter had not been fully investigated and we now understand that we failed to follow the best course of action to determine the cause of the problem. We have now established that the problem was NOT with the DVD or USB drives. The parent who notified us of the material has found that the problem was caused by inappropriate material on her home computer.


I would like to apologise to the parent committee and in particular to the Vilensky family for the distress that this has caused. There was absolutely no problem with the DVDs and they will be available from the school at the beginning of next term.


The Vilensky family's contribution to the school over a ten year period has been very significant in terms of their work in the P&C and their work behind the scenes on many activities, the most recent of which was undoubtedly the best Year 6 farewell ever. It is a matter of great regret that this situation has marred their last day as parents at our school.




Yours sincerely.





Ivan Pagett
