Well I can’t thank the staff, students and parents enough for the continued very warm welcome I have had since arriving in this beautiful school. I am so inspired every day that I am here as I walk around discussing the school with parents, children and staff! It’s a beautiful learning environment that’s for sure!
In my fist week I took great pleasure in sending a quick snapshot of my Friday afternoon experience to my colleagues as I watched our surf classes happening! It really is a unique opportunity at this primary school level to have access to this sport – that excites me for our children and the ongoing opportunities that provides for them.
Last Friday I attended soccer where our Palm Beach teams did a wonderful job. Again we have some fantastic parents who supported the children with travel to and from the venue and also gave a hearty cheer and ongoing encouragement when they needed it. I only saw one game and it was a nail biter where we won up just one goal at the final whistle! I’m sure the parents were proud of our children but as Principal I was so very proud of the team comradely and the spirit of support the boys showed one another. Again this is a reflection on what the school stands for and the obvious investment in children and their development into young adults who are ready and able to “perform” across multiple contexts. The talent that we have in our school being shown by our students and supported by staff and families is amazing and exciting!
