Term 4 has been a whirlwind of exciting learning experiences for us all. Looking back over the year we have had many successes that continue to make St Leonards the fabulous school that it is.
The Celebration Day was an outstanding success even without a parent and friend audience. Our learners were absolutely brilliant.. A big thank you to Nikki and Ian. Once again you were fabulous.
This is an exciting, yet sad, time of year as we welcome and farewell staff, as we know that they are our greatest assets. We farewell the following:
Jo Meredith is leaving us after two years. In that time Jo has established herself as a popular member of our school community who puts our learners first at all times. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jo for her brilliant contribution to our school and wish her all the best for the in the next phase of her leadership journey.
Mei Lin had the unenviable task of establishing our Chinese program and has done this with enthusiasm. Thank you for all of your work Mei and we would like to wish you all the best.
Tayla Kemp has worked in our Year 6 class this year and will be moving interstate. She developed wonderful relationships with staff and students and will be missed. We wish her all the best in her next adventure.
On behalf of staff, parents and students, I would like to thank and acknowledge the outstanding work of staff that are moving on due to career opportunities and wish them all the best for the future. We also wish a fond farewell to all our students and their families who are leaving our SLPS community in 2021. We hope that you enjoyed your time with us. We will miss you all.
