Artefact: Letter to parents

Dear parents and carers of class P/1O.
My name is Samantha Harbulot and I am a preservice teacher from Southern Cross University in Coolangatta. I
am studying Primary Education and specialising in Special Education. I am currently in my fourth year of
University and will be graduating this year.
I feel that it is important to introduce myself to you and inform you that I will be teaching and getting to know your
children over two four week blocks during February and May.
Please feel free to drop past the classroom to say hi and ask any questions you may have.
I am looking forward to getting to know the class and meeting everyone.

Yours Sincerely,
Miss Samantha Harbulot
