Thank you so much for your support of the start of year expectations. The Department felt it was the best opportunity to stop the spread of COVID within our school. The overwhelming support meant we could welcome our new Reception and Year 1 students into school before other grades came back in week 3. We have been excited to welcome all students back this week and look forward to what lies ahead.
We continue to focus on Numeracy and Literacy as our key learning focus areas for 2022. We have set our targets high for all students and will be doing our best to ensure students are given every opportunity to be successful. Regular updates will be sent home to inform you of where your child sits in relation to learning outcomes.
This year we say farewell to Mrs Turpin who has been my Senior Leader for the past 4 years. During this time Mrs Turpin has been highly influential in improving Literacy outcomes for students and developing teacher skill sets in many areas of teaching. She has been an outstanding support to myself and to other Leaders within our school. The number of students and their families that she has personally supported and made a difference for cannot truly be measured. I thank her for her outstanding work and wish her well as she moves to the Whyalla Regional Office where she takes up the role of Special Education Support Officer for the Whyalla Partnership. All schools will now receive a very high level of support and commitment from Mrs Turpin. We will miss you.
