Assistant Principal's Message

Goodbye and Good luck!

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The end of the year is here and I am sure you would agree that in many ways the last 12 months has just flown by. It probably doesn't seem that long ago that you stepped into the Preschool with your child for the very first time.

This year has been a very successful one at the Preschool with our service being assessed and rated for the first time in 2015. Our result was a wonderful achievement for our educators and a testament to 4 years of preparation and hard work. A big thank you to our Preschool parent committee in 2015 who provided us with feedback during policy development and were a voice for our families.

The children have been a lovely group to work with and they have all achieved so much over the last 12 months with us. I am sure you will enjoy reading about many of your child's achievements in the developmental profiles that will be handed out on CD this week. These are a great memento to keep of your child's year with us. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our teacher educators Kathy, Elisha and Elizabeth for all the time and effort they have put into preparing these profiles for our families. I would also like to acknowledge our three teacher assistants who have also played a key role in preparing all the end of year events at the Preschool this year. Thank you Lisa, Mona and Monica for a great year!

We know that many of the children are off to school in about 6 weeks time and we wish them all the very best at their new schools. I am also really looking forward to working with many of our children as they head up the hill to Kindergarten at Banksmeadow. It's been lots of fun meeting everyone during our Kids into Kindy program and I am sure it's going to be a great ahead next year.

We hope you have enjoyed your time with us at Banksmeadow Preschool. We expect that you found the year a very positive one and we hope that you will consider us again as a great option for any further children that may come along in the future. We would really appreciate your assistance in spreading the word about the quality of our service as our best advertisement is our families, so your support is vital.

On behalf of the staff at the Preschool I'd like to thank you for a wonderful year. Have a safe and happy holiday season and we hope to see you all again soon.

Kind Regards,

Roxanne Bragg
