On Thursday we will be submitting our 2015 Annual Report (AR). Thanks needs to go to all staff for your efforts in ensuring we make an impact on student learning. The AR highlights our success and I have enjoyed looking through our data whilst compiling the report. I will share some of the successes on our SDD.

Holidays and the balance

I have always felt that we needed to ensure that we have a balance between our work and personal lives.


My thoughts on this are shifting as it assumes we all need the same amount of time to prepare.


I am leaning more now to work life contentment.... driven by ensuring we spend enough time in our preparation to 'be ready when the lights come on'.



Keeping this in mind I would still prefer that you all enjoy a restful holiday with you friends and family but if you do wish to come to school you will need to do the following-



  • work with a colleague to ensure 2 of you are onsite at all times.
  • let me know by text when arriving and leaving.
  • negotiate with Pete and Mick regarding the times they are onsite.
  • be prepared to alarm the school if you are attending on days Pete and Mick are not available.

Have a great week!
