Welcome to our School Newsletter for Week 9
I'm writing to you on the last day of the 2020 school year, and hasn't it been a rollercoaster?!
We don't usually send a newsletter out in week 9 of term 4, but now that we've gone digital, it is much easier to get our newsletters out to families, even when there are fewer students on site.
I'd like to thank you all for the kindness and generosity you have shown me over the last six months. I am excited to hand the reins over to Mr Steven Barclay for 2021 and return to my role as Senior Years Leader, but I will never forget what I've learned and had the chance to experience as Acting Principal.
You will find below a table of our staffing arrangements for 2021. Please note that sometimes things change over the holidays so, whilst this staffing plan is pretty certain, there may be a tweak or two.
