PRINCIPAL'S ADDRESS 2019
To all parents and carers,
I want to welcome you to the new school year and especially welcome those of you who are new to the South Lake Primary School. We are thrilled to be teaching your son/daughter as they begin an exciting new school year. On behalf of the teachers and myself, we welcome you and want you to know that we will do everything we can to make your child’s education journey, the best possible.
Opening the doors on the first day of a new school year is always a milestone with lots of excitement and anticipation of all the fabulous experiences that are planned for the year ahead. A huge amount of work was done by staff in 2018 and has provided us with excellent direction for 2019 and successive years; it’s all systems go.
Students have settled into their new classrooms and all our support and special programs are up and running. If you haven’t been able to visit your child’s classroom, please make a time to come to school and meet your child’s teacher, myself and other members of the administration team. We are always keen and happy to meet our parents.
South Lake Primary School staff strives to provide a learning environment that is underpinned by a strong set of values. As a staff we work together to develop in students the values that will stand them in good stead for the future. Our aim is for students to develop positive relationships by being respectful of everybody and accepting of differences, to be resilient and accountable for their actions, to be safe in all settings, and for students to always have a go and try to be their best. At South Lake Primary School, we want your child to get the best education; they need to attend school every day. Developing a habit of going to school every day is vitally important so your child does not miss out on important ideas and skills they need for future learning
In addition to our 2018 staff this year we welcome back to SLPS Ms Panther (PE Specialist) and Mrs Webber (Year 4, A4 on Friday). A complete list of all school staff will be included in the newsletter.
There is always a lot on at South Lake Primary, starting with our first assembly on Thursday 21 February. I am looking forward to meeting you all then.
