Well I am finding it difficult to believe that this is the final newsletter for 2018. The year has certainly flown by! It has been a very busy year with the students being provided with a wide variety of educational events throughout the year. I have nothing but praise for the outstanding commitment and dedication my staff have shown throughout 2018 and I feel very privileged to work with such wonderful people. I would also like to publicly acknowledge my Deputy Chris Stratton, Manager of Corporate Services, Mrs Riches and School Officer, Mrs Feist for the support and loyalty they have shown me throughout the year. This year the school has had some minor works done to uplift the front of our school. Thanks must also go to our cleaners Leonie and Joe and gardener Phil for their work around the school.
I would like to take this opportunity, to thank Mrs Toni Rathe and Mrs Julie Thompson for their outstanding contributions to the school this year. Your efforts have been very much appreciated.
It was fantastic to see you all at the Christmas Concert last Thursday night. The teachers and their students put on a beautiful concert. Congratulations to all award winners!
The work of the P&C led by Chris Timmins and his executive committee also needs to be acknowledged. The work of the small but industrious fundraising committee has seen substantial funds being given to the school to purchase much need resources for the school. The playground was also improved with painted games outside the classrooms for the children to use. A very big thank you to you all from the staff and students of EHPS!
My final thanks goes to the School Board. Led by Mr Eli Greatley, the Board have worked tirelessly to continue to improve the school practices and ensure the school is working to achieve our vision: “To inspire a culture of excellence in all that we do.”
On behalf of the staff of EHPS may I extend our best wishes to you and your families for a wonderful Christmas and a happy and safe new year!
School returns for students on Monday 4 February 2019.
