A Message from the Principal


We also say goodbye to Mr. Gregory, who has taken up a position at Newbury Primary School. Mr. Gregory came to our school as a graduate teacher three years ago and quickly found his place in education. We thank Mr. Gregory for all his work during this time and wish him all the best at his new school.

Mrs. Wlodarska also leaves us at the end of the year. Mrs. Wlodarska has worked with us this year, re-introducing our languages program in the P – 2 area. We are grateful for all her work and wish her well as she continues her role as Japanese teacher at Sunbury PS.


With goodbyes, we also have welcomes.

We welcome Mr. Eric Penny to the school next year who will be transitioning to us from Romsey PS. It was great that Mr. Penny could join us during our recent curriculum day to be part of our planning for 2018.

We also welcome Ms Ako Sueyoshi as our new Japanese teacher. Ms. Sueyoshi will be taking up a 0.6 position with us, meaning that we can extend our languages program from P – 6 next year.

We look forward to having these new staff members on board.


Carols On The Green

Thankyou to the small but enthusiastic group of students who represented our school at Carols on the Green on Saturday night. They have spent many weeks rehearsing during lunchtimes and were very excited at the prospect of participating in this community event. Thankyou to Mrs. Lardner for her coordination of this.


As this is our last newsletter for the year, I extend warmest wishes to all our families during the holiday period. On behalf of the staff, I also thank the many parents who actively contribute to the many facets of school life, ensuring that our kids have the best opportunities possible. We thank parents for their ongoing support of their children and our school and we look forward to seeing everyone in the new year.
