From The Principal
GOODBYE AND GOOD LUCK TO THE CLASS OF 2016
Next week is the final week for our Year 12 students, before they begin their final exams. They will be farewelled at a special P-12 assembly on Wednesday and on Thursday evening students, their families and staff will attend our Valedictory Dinner where we will formally acknowledge the end of 13 years of schooling for these students. On behalf of the whole school community, I would like to wish the class of 2016 the very best for their exams and for the future.
Our annual Arts and Technology Show was held on Wednesday October 12th and was once again a great success. Our students have completed some outstanding pieces of work which were proudly on display. Thank you to Kevin Fahey and to all of the Arts and Technology teachers for all of the work involved in putting the show together. Congratulations to our incredibly talented students for their outstanding work. Awards were presented at a special ceremony in the evening. The most outstanding Arts and Technology Show student award was presented to Sophie Diamantis of Year 11.
Our Prep. transition program will commence in a few weeks. If you have children ready to commence Prep. in 2017, please contact Mrs. Sheila Horn to organise enrolment.
It is with a degree of sadness that I would like to inform the school community that I have decided to retire at the end of this year. After 28 years at this school, the last 11 as principal, this has been a very hard decision. I love Carwatha and I have loved every minute of my association with the school. I will share more about my reflections of my time at Carwatha and my thanks to the many people who have supported me over the years in future newsletters. In the meantime, the Department of Education will organise the process of selecting a new principal, who should be in place at the start of 2017.
