To say that I will be incredibly sad to leave Balnarring Primary School at the end of this term is an understatement. When I walked in these doors 3 years ago, I had no intention of ever leaving, because I recognised what a beautiful place it is. From the natural learning environments, the high standards expected of our students and of each other but most importantly as I mentioned at our Foundation 2025 information night, the people that walk through these doors each and every day. We have the most incredibly dedicated staff who care very deeply for the students that they teach and their families. They go above and beyond to provide the best learning experiences for their students and are very passionate learners themselves.

How fortunate we have been with the weather in the last couple of weeks. There is certainly a happiness that goes along with the lovely days.

Anne, Krysha, Georga Bryant (School Council President) and Conor Mullan (long standing School Council member) and I met with a group of parents today to discuss our work and response to the issue in Kirinari. Kerri Collins had several questions from other parents that we discussed along with other queries. I urge all parents to call and make a time to meet or chat on the phone with me if you have any questions or queries that you have not been answered through COMPASS communications. I am always more than happy to meet with parents and families. When we communicate directly and work together, we can solve many issues and come up with great solutions and outcomes for our students.

Welcome Back to Balnarring Primary School for 2024 to all our existing community members and our new families that have joined us in 2024! I hope this finds you all in high spirits and ready for another fantastic term at Balnarring Primary School. It brings me great joy to welcome everyone back after the holiday break. It was truly heartwarming to see the excitement and happiness radiating from everyone as families returned in the school grounds.
