ESOL Parent Letter - March 2015

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

My name is Anna Hedstrom (Miss H) and I am a full-time ESOL teacher at Parnell District School. I work with all year levels (Years 1-8) in a little classroom on the field. Working alongside me is Sarah Hastings who works part-time and will share the teaching of children from Years 1-4 with me by taking groups in classroom next to mine. Your child will have opportunities to work with both myself and Miss Hastings throughout the term. Our focus is to help your child improve their English skills both in Oral language and Literacy.

As a way of being able to communicate with you on a regular basis we will try to regularly update our blog. You can find this page on the schools website or the link is:

Also, as an extra way to support all ESOL students (both at school and at home), we have purchased a subscription to a very valuable literacy website. It has 3 ‘Learning Spaces’ therefore making it perfect for all year levels and a great way to get children more interested in books and reading. The information is as follows:

Username: parnellesol
Password: room31

Your child should also continue to read regularly books given to them by their classroom teacher as well as books chosen from our school library as well as other libraries.

Please feel free to keep in touch with us regarding your child’s progress in English. My email address is: and Sarah’s email address is:
