Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

Adelaide Royal Show

Well done to Sarah Townsend and her team of students who represented the school at the recent Royal Adelaide Show. Whilst the results were not at the lofty level of 2013 ( we'll be hard pressed to repeat those!) it was great to see the team come home with some well deserved ribbons. 

To me, what was just as great a success was seeing the number of students and parents who worked together at the show to achieve the results. Special thanks go to Julie Bagshaw for her work with the students and to Tony Lawler and Andrew Honner for transportation.  A great effort from all concerned.

Pre-service teachers

Next week we say farewell to our three pre-service teachers, Deony Sims, Natalie Gordon and Kimberley Trueman.  They've worked well in what can sometimes be a complex and demanding teaching environment, with positive reports from their mentor teachers on their classroom teaching and involvement. We wish them all the best for the future.\

Festival of Music Choir

Congratulations to the Festival of Music Choir who performed in Adelaide last Sunday. The culmination of a year’s hard work.! This year we have worked closely with Ardrossan Area School for this event and it has been a great example of the two schools working together. A big thank you to Deb Schwartz for her effort in working with the students throughout the year.

Deputy Principal

For the last two weeks of this term, Beth Hector is enjoying some long service leave in America. If you have queries or questions that you would normally direct to Beth, please refer them to Tim Tuck (Primary), Leigh Rothe (Secondary) or myself.
