  • Guest speaker Deputy Principal Beth Hector spoke to us about Literacy Workshops and Take Home Readers.
  • Guest speaker Fiona Lee Colliver, our Bus Coordinator updated us on routes, rules and numbers on our buses.
  • Our Governing Council Rep Janine Burrows kept us up to date with minutes and attendance at meeting with major topics being Ag Block Renovations, School Landscaping and Site Planning for 2013.
  • Canteen Updates came from Teesh Linke Specials and Updates to Menu, Supply difficulties and the usually was more volunteers needed!
  • Mr Tim Tuck (Primary School Coordinator) after many discussions from parents held a R/1/2 Parent Meeting covering concerns and issues in this area, along with brain storming from parents. This was very well done and worth while.

I have enjoyed being the President with a group of mums willing to help out. I hope you all have enjoyed keeping up to date with School Life and getting together doing our part in making a difference to our school and a nicer place for our children to be.

Thank You, 

Marie Wheare
