From The Principal

Hello everyone,

What a wonderful last few weeks of term we have had.  There have been so many special events on in the school that it seems there was almost not a day without a play, ceremony, showcase, excursion or special visitor.  Our Christmas Markets last week were a lovely way for the community to come together at the end of the year.  Congratulations and thank you to the Class 2 parents for their work on bringing this together.

As always, this has been a year full of wonderful learning, achievements to celebrate on every level, beautiful school community events and the joy of being a part of the development of young human beings.

I would like to close the year by thanking the dedicated, caring and hardworking teachers, aides and assistants in the school.  Your hard work and never-failing care for the students is amazing. I would also like to thank the incredible administration, support and site team.  Your hard work keeps this wonderful school functioning and allows our teachers to teach and our students to learn. Thank you also to all of the Class Coordinators and to the P&F executive for giving so generously of your time and skills to support the work of the school.  I would like to thank all of the parents for entrusting your precious children into our care and working with us to support their learning and development.  And finally, a huge thank you to our amazing students – you are the reason we are all here.

Please all have a safe and peaceful Christmas break.  I look forward to seeing you all in the new school year.

Peace
Nerrida
