Tim Waley, Principal
What a colorful, patriotic and enjoyable occasion the International Day celebrations were last Friday. It was fabulous to be part of such rich diversity in our student community. While we know from enrolment data that we have over 30 countries represented in our population, it is events such as this that makes one realise the strength in that diversity. Thank you to all for your participation. Special thanks to Tanya Van Damme for her catering coordination that provided the delightful delicacies so greatly enjoyed by our students. I also express my gratitude to our staff and those sooooooooo many other parents and friends involved in assisting with the wonderful food stations and the day’s arrangements generally. Simply, a marvelous day - thank you all again.
Thank you to all those parents who attended the parent teacher conference during our first week back this term. Feedback from the teaching staff is that these were particularly valuable opportunities and I hope that you found the discussions constructive and helpful in relation to your children’s development and progress. Of course, there is no need to just wait until such opportunities to speak with the staff and as always I encourage you to not hesitate to make arrangements to contact them should you have any queries or concerns. As I have said previously, open and consistent, along with honest and regular dialogue between home and school will always be the best formula to ensuring our young people achieve the best of which they are capable.
