We welcome all new families and students to our wonderful school. The students have settled quickly into the 2018 school year.
We would like to welcome the following staff to our Hackham East Primary School Community:
Ms Brooke Hilton, teacher of the Year 1/2 class in Castle Unit. Brooke has come to us from Hallett Cove East Primary.
Mr Stephen Di Girolamo, Arts Specialist Teacher, working Tuesday to Thursday.
Mrs Bec Zahra, SSO.
It is sad to farewell Liz Janmaat who has been with us as an SSO for 17 years. Liz has decided that it is time to retire. She has worked in many roles, assisting many children and staff. She has also relieved in the TRT Scheme booking relief teachers. We wish Liz the very best in her retirement and hope that she keeps in touch.
All teachers at our school work collaboratively in teams. Together they plan, assess and moderate students’ learning. This is to provide consistency between classes and each teacher has their own teaching style but the content, teaching strategies and programming is consistent between all year levels.
