Principal's Update

Hi everyone!


As we come to the end of the year I would like to extend a few thank yous. Firstly to our students you have done an amazing job this year. To see the improvement and pride that each and every student takes in their work has been a pleasure. They should all be very proud of their achievements this year.  


To our school families, thank you for supporting all that we do at the school. From ensuring students are here every day, attending events, helping with school work to being a member of the Parents and Friends Committee and School Council. We appreciate everything our families do for our school. 


To our teachers and ES staff, thank you for going above and beyond in helping our students to achieve their best. The cohesive teaching we have across the school is something to be very proud of. Along with this, the extra activities you each take on board, such as structured play, spelling bee, sports competitions etc is something our students truly enjoy!


2024 Student Leaders

All of our Grade 5 students were invited to participate in our Student Leader election for 2024. Students were asked to write their speech and deliver it to the Grade 2 to Grade 6 students. I would like to congratulate Ashtyn, Junior, Akirah-Lee, Indianna and Olivia on being elected as our student leaders for 2024. I am sure you will all do an exceptional job and demonstrate great leadership skills.

In 2024 we welcome Mrs Turk, Miss Johns, Miss Bilski and Mr Lovett to Cobram Primary School teaching staff. I hope you all join me in making them very welcome in our school community.
