Welcome back to Tin Can Bay for a terrific Term 2.  I would like to introduce you to some new members of our team.

Rob Neisler – our new Deputy Principal.  Rob will work closely with Callie Sparling across P-6, but with line management of 4-6.  Callie is reducing her work time to three days per week – Monday to Wednesday.

Dorothy Hogan – Head of Department – Classroom Engagement.  Dorothy brings a wealth of experience in building positive school culture to our school.

Jess Fitzpatrick, who will be teaching 7-10 Science for Term 2.

Michelle Thompson, who will join our SEP Team.

Amanda Wallis – Amanda will teach class 5B.

At the end of term we said farewell to the following teachers,  I thank them for their contribution to our team and wish them well in their new endeavours: Michelle Moore is heading out west to Longreach; Leith Paton is continuing his leave travelling around Australia; Laurice Morgillo has finished her contract with us but I am sure we will still see her regularly as she provides relief when teachers are absent.

Term 2 will see us move from Diagnose & Design into implementation.  This will focus heavily on: Improving our Student’s Attendance, Reading, Reading, Reading, Building a Positive Learning Culture.

I look forward to continue our relationship and sense of the Goose in progressing these together. Attendance  –  It was great to finish last term by writing to students recognising their positive attendance. Strong Attendance = Improved Learning.

Well done.  Let’s add more names in Term 2.

Uniform Shop  –  will be open each Tuesday morning between 8am-10am.  At present, we have limited stock of winter garments and these will go quickly.  To ensure your children are correctly and warmly dressed for the upcoming cooler months, it is essential that parents order winter uniforms now.  Order forms are available from the school office and on the school website.
