Thank you for the support you have given us in such a challenging year.  We would never have imagined what this year would bring and have learned a lot as a result.  Our staff have done an exceptional job in two rounds of remote learning and worked hard to provide continuity of learning in challenging circumstances.  I am sure you join me in acknowledging this and sincerely thanking them and wishing them a well-earned break.  Your children have shown great resilience and adapted to the challenges better than we could have imagined.  Well done to all of them for their efforts and achievements.  To our Grade 6 and Year 9 students leaving us, we are very proud of you and are certain that you all have bright futures ahead of you.  Best of luck and please come back to visit.

On a personal note, I thank all members of our community for making me feel welcome.  I am ready for a holiday but very much looking forward to the great work ahead in 2021 and what we will achieve. Have a Merry Christmas and enjoyable break.

Warm Regards  Vicki Minton Principal
