Welcome to my blog! I haven’t done a blog before- bear with me!
I want this blog to be amusing, personal and interesting! It is a way for me to share my thoughts, feelings and excitement as Principal of our school.
So here goes…..
Today was very exciting! We moved into our new building…after many, many months of planning, meeting and disruption! The staff are happy, the students excited, and the Principal relieved that so far it has gone without a hitch! There are a few little things to do… but we’re in!
You are most welcome to come and have a look too!
I am amazed at the work-ethic of our staff here at Good Shepherd! Don’t listen to others- teaching is not a 9-3 job! Today, I have just finished a day of Kinder interviews. I just walked in the staffroom (at 6pm) to find two teachers proof reading reports, others working in their rooms. (Don’t worry, I told them to go home!) I have attached a photo of a recent staff meeting whereby teachers were doing hands-on Mathematics during a recent Professional Learning presentation. They not only teach 9-3, but attend staff meetings to improve their teaching and sit late into the evening reading reports!
Having quality and hard-working staff makes my job easier! We are honestly blessed at Good Shepherd.
Welcome back to Term 3!
The first day of a new term is always exciting! Staff are buzzing in the staffroom, first thing and chatting about their break. Students are excited too to see their friends and their teachers.
It was great this morning to welcome 7 new students to Good Shepherd!
I visited all classrooms today and catch-up with what has been happening over the past two weeks.
There is always a sense of ‘newnesss’ starting a new term! Energy levels are up too!
Have a great Term 3!
What a fantastic day we had today!
This was one of the best days I have ever had at Good Shepherd- The STEM Fair!
I was extremely proud of all students who had an exhibit or experiment at the STEM Fair. Their hard work, commitment and knowledge was certainly on show for all to see.
The many parents and grandparents who were there too were very proud as well.
Great work to Mrs Corkhill and Mrs Weier on organising and all the work you did.
It was a very proud day as a Principal!
On Thursday, I am taking some projects and students to Parliament House to show our local Senator. That’s pretty cool!
