FAREWELL

It is with sadness that we advise that our very hard-working, highly valuable and talented School Admin Manager Jen Jardine is taking leave for the rest of 2016 pending retirement. Mrs Jardine’s last day will be next Friday 6th May. Mrs Jardine has managed a very difficult and important role at our school for the last 8 years including the whole-school management of school accounts amongst a myriad of other tasks. She will be greatly missed but we wish her well with her planned travel and grand-parenting duties. Congratulations on a great career Jen.

BUILDING RESILIENCE PROGRAM

One initiative we are conducting this year is a Building Resilience Program. This will involve in-class lessons conducted by class teachers, small group lessons with our school counsellor Mrs Sandra Parker and a parent session. The parent session will be held at 6.00pm next Thursday 5th May – more information next week.
