Principal News: End of Year Update

Farewell to our Leavers

Last week it was lovely to see so many families and friends come together at our Leavers Assembly to celebrate, congratulate and say farewell to our students who are leaving us to return to their local mainstream school. It was a great opportunity for us all to look back and reflect on the wonderful progress our students have made in the short time they have been with us.  Here are some lovely photos of our leavers on their special days.

We are all very proud of the achievements our students have made. They have demonstrated their commitment to working hard and persevering when they are faced with challenges. We say goodbye with a strong sense of pride for their achievements. I know each and every one of these students have shown our school virtues of friendliness, kindness and respect to staff and their peers but most importantly, they have shown the virtues of courage and determination to persevere when they are faced with challenges. These are all wonderful qualities that will support them in their move to their new schools. We wish them all the very best for the next stage in their education journey.

Thank you to our P&C & Board

I would also like to recognise and thank the dedicated group of parents and community members who have committed their time to being on our P&C and Board this year. They are a small team that work amazingly well to fundraise and provide support to our staff to ensure that our students continue to receive the programs and resources they need.
