From the Principal's desk


We congratulate all students who have continued to “have-a-go” during the year and who aim to be the best they can possibly be. 


Staff work hard to plan, organise and deliver as many learning experiences as we can. With the valuable support of parents (including School Council and P&F), and the wider community, these experiences are enhanced, so we thank all of our helpers for their contributions during the year.


I would like to acknowledge the work of Faye Holmes in Science this year, we thank you for all the exciting Science lessons you have provided for the students. We wish you the best of luck with your retirement! 


Thank you also to Allira Wilson who has completed her traineeship with us this year. Allira has been a great contributor to our staff and has worked closely with individual students and small groups to give them extra support with their learning. Allira's contributions in helping out in the office will also be missed. We wish Allira all the best with her future studies.


To all families, enjoy the holiday break as you spend time relaxing with family and friends. Be safe and we look forward to continuing to provide lots of learning for your children in 2019.
