Hello everyone and welcome back to Upwey Primary School for the 2016 school year! Firstly I would like to thank everyone, students, parents, staff and the local community for being so welcoming and warm towards me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first full week as Principal of our gorgeous school.
Hasn’t it been great to get back into routine? As much as I love holidays, it has been fabulous to get back to school and get started on what promises to be an amazing 2016. I look forward to sharing more information with you all in the coming weeks about our school priorities and upcoming events!
At a quick ‘Welcome Back’ gathering last Friday, our new Prep students were introduced to our school and presented with their ‘First Day’ certificates. Daniel B, Lucy C, Zoe H, Tyler H, Mikayla H and Bode P are all on their way to settling in and are already becoming familiar with our school under the loving care of their Year One classmates and teacher Mrs Chris- tofis.
This year we also welcome new students Ezekiel H (Year Six) and Ash W (Year Four) and their families to our school. I know you will all make them feel welcome.
