Dear Parents & Caregivers,
I went to the Board of Trustees meeting on Monday night and delivered my ‘Principal’s Report’. I was impressed with the dedication of a really important group of parents, who are responsible for the governance of our wonderful school. What really impressed me the most was how much they care about the education of our students and want the best conditions for them to thrive. It is a serious business being a board member and certainly I didn’t realise the amount of work they did. But I assure you all that you have chosen the group well.
Who are they – I hear you ask? Well, John Thorman (Chairman), Martin Cooper, Tim Larkin, Kathryn Alward, Craig Cunningham and Ilona Lumborg (teacher’s representative).
So on behalf of the VAS community I would like to thank you for your service to our school.
I would also like to acknowledge The Friends team who ran a very successful Halloween Disco last Friday. Thanks to Rozy Williamson who overall organised the event. Also Rebecca Doole, Kerrie Gregory, Kristin Williams, Asher Williams, Petra Bebbington, Hannah Williams, Kylie Hotham, Alex Van Son, Marei Chaney, Wendy Burgess, Brigitte McGregor-Macdonald, Alexander and Michelle Green, Amy Weston, Greer Pasupati, Amanda Deller, Georgie Hall, Clare Crosby, Jen Van Epps, Sharlene Bravo-Morello, Susannah Barratt-Boyes, Kerry Martin, Llori Valenzuela, Mikael Uggla, Jeff Valenzuela, Amanda Dick, Meg Tan, Ye Jin Kim, Christiane Sullivan and Maneesh Deva who all helped . Special mention to Allecia Swale who isn’t even a parent just a very supportive Godmother!
Ka pai tō mah!
