School Fair - Saturday 20th October, 2018 

Tombola: Kinder again is in charge of our Tombola stall so we are asking Kinder parents to volunteer to help out at the stall throughout the day.  Also any families throughout the school can donate a bottle filled with for example:  marbles, temporary tattoos, toy soldiers/dinosaurs/farm animals, items to make pet rocks (smooth pebbles, paint, googly eyes, etc.), gardening gloves, seed packets, etc., home made sugar scrubs, hair elastics/scrunchies/clips, new socks, tiny novelty erasers, tea-light candles, glow sticks, bath bombs, new pencils/crayons, stickers.  These can be delivered to the Kinder rooms.

Lucky Dip:  A reminder to please start looking around for little knick knacks that you can donate for the lucky dip, this is always popular with our children so anything little would be great to be packaged up.  Baskets will be put in your classroom for you to pop in your donations.  

Thank you,   Karen

Message from Kerry McMinn

Dear families,

 

I am writing to let you know that on Friday I was officially advised by our Human Resources Department that I have been appointed to the position of Acting Principal Network Leader for Network 1 from 22nd August till 31st December 2018.   The role of Network Leaders, according to the Statement of Duties is to “… focus on improving the performance of all schools in the network through building collective capacity of Principals to lead and manage schools, to improve the quality of the educational offering and the performance of all students.   Responsible for development and implementation of consistent state-wide educational policy, processes and reform.”

 

For the period in which I am acting in the PNL positon, Michael Park has been directly appointed as Acting Principal of Albuera Street. Michael has experience in primary and high schools in both Tasmania and Queensland and has held a substantive level consistent with the principalship of Albuera Street for about 5 years.  I’m confident that Michael’s experience alongside our existing professional, accomplished and dedicated senior, teaching and support staff will continue to build the incredible school culture and community that is Albuera Street in my absence.  I wish everyone all the best for the rest of the 2018 school year while I am away.
