Principals Message

 

Hello everyone and welcome to the end of Term 1,

 

It has arrived upon us incredibly quickly, and I wish to thank each and every one of you for your connection to our school and for the commitment and hard work you show every day in supporting your children to be ready for learning.

As Term 1 draws to an end, we can only reflect on how lucky we have been to undertake most of this term without major disruptions and challenges. How fortunate that our programs and events have unfolded as planned during the term and as our teachers continue to work hard this week to undertake their extensive planning for term 2, we are somewhat optimistic and hopeful that this landscape will continue into next term.

We end a fantastic term that have seen some significant accomplishments with our Foundation students beginning their schooling and settling into their learning spaces with their peers and new teachers, the entire student group beginning their learning with rigour and intent.

We have all worked together to make this happen, some students have required additional support to ensure that they were ready to learn.

Our teachers have worked tirelessly to make this happen and for that I applaud and thank them.

 

END OF TERM 1

Please note that the last day of Term 1 is tomorrow, Thursday 1st April @ 2.00pm.

Term 2 will begin on Monday 19th April.
