The end of Week 7 has arrived and what a crazy week we have had. We would like to commend our staff and students for the way they handled the State lock down. The professionalism shown by staff and the willingness to help out our learners in any way they could warmed our hearts. Thank goodness it was short term and we were back to normal, ready to enjoy our last two weeks.
We would like to also thank our parent community for observing our COVID restrictions going forward.
Last week we shared our class structures for 2021. Teachers and Leadership have put many hours into the process and whilst we have tried to accommodate people’s wishes, this is not always possible. In 2021 we start with big numbers. Class movements will be very hard to accommodate. Staffing has been put into the system and we hope to have our teachers confirmed shortly
It is with mixed emotions that we inform our community that Jo Meredith has won a position as a “Curriculum Lead” in our Local Education Team based at the Flinders Park office. During her two years at St Leonards, Jo has forged close relationships with our school community. Her expertise and measured approach to improving student learning will be missed. The positive news for us however is that St Leonards is one of the schools that Jo will be working with and we are very excited that she will continue to offer her 'pearls of wisdom'. Congratulations Jo. We will all miss you.
We are hoping to have news on the Leadership structure for 2021 in the next newsletter
Enjoy the lead up to Christmas. Enjoy these family times. They are so important.
