BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE...
As always we find ourselves coming to the end of another busy and full term of learning and experiences for our children. As a Board we want to thank our learning community for the amazing support they have shown at school events: providing transport, being parent helpers on camp, and in general supporting your children's learning. Obviously a huge focus for us as a Board at the moment is the appointment of a new principal. We have a highly capable Appointment Committee undertaking this process and are currently advertising the position and you can see details of this on our website. Due to the need to put the right time and energy into this process an appointment will not be made before the start of Term 2. A plan has been put in place that ensures minimal disruption to student learning and the smooth running of the school. You can read more about this on the other side of this newsletter.
