Principal's Report

2019

Our students had the opportunity to be with their new classes for 2019. It was a great day and the students all enjoyed getting to know each other. It was great to see all of the 2019 Preps interacting with their buddies and being big students at school. Even though we are a small school we spend a lot of time organising classes to ensure that we are getting the best mix for all of our students. Our students write down friends that they wish to be with and then we make decisions based on a variety of factors.

We welcome our new teacher Anita Burman to year 5/6.

 

Our classes for 2019 -

FD - Sarah Davidson - 17 students - 12 boys - 6 girls

1/2N - Shemsa Nicol - 23 students - 19 boys - 4 girls

2/3D - Danielle Donovan - 23 students - 17 boys - 6 girls

4/5D - Stephanie Davies - 24 students - 11 boys - 13 girls

5/6B - Anita Burman - 24 students - 13 boys - 11 girls

Christmas Concert

The weather forecast for tomorrow is of some concern however we think that we will be able to accomodate everybody in the Multipurpose room. Please remember to put in orders for food if you would still like to. Simply email or call the office.

Last Day of School

The last day of school finishes at 1:30pm. The final assembly for the year will be on Friday 21st December starting at 12:45pm. We have our special awards to present as well as saying goodbye to our year 6 students. Please attend if you are able.

Year 6 Graduation

Our year 6 graduation is next week on Tuesday. This is always a sad but wonderful event and we look forwards to the celebration.

Have a great week everyone.
