Dear Parents & Community Members,
The School Board met for the final time on Monday evening and I once again extend my sincere appreciation for the support and direction this group provides for our school. During the meeting the Board examined Operational Plans for next year in the relevant focus areas, the school budget for 2022 and received an update in relation to our 1 to 1 Technology Program being introduced in 2022. The Annual Report for 2021 that will be released early next year will provide evidence against how the school has progressed in relation to current targets.
While staff are in the final stages of preparing end of year reports, there has also been a significant amount of work undertaken by staff to ensure our school maintains the high standards expected. I extend my appreciation to all staff involved in the preparation of plans, financial submissions and the draft budget. This planning takes a significant amount of time, largely undertaken outside normal hours and provides the School Board with the confidence to endorse all documentation.
My sincere thanks to Kerry Jones and Melissa Stoney, who concluded their respective terms on the School Board. While these people are welcome to renominate, their current tenure on the Board has certainly been appreciated. Kerry has been the School Board Chair in 2021 and I would particularly like to acknowledge her support throughout the year.
Finally, to all those community members who assisted with the Colour Blast – your time was certainly appreciated. To those who sprayed, slimed or dumped water on me; I can’t wait until next year.
