Following an appointment’s process we have provisionally appointed Ms Nicole Alonso to the position of Learning Specialist. This is a senior leadership position that will be responsible for developing and extending our Literacy programs. Ms Alonso will also become the third member of the Year 2 team teaching 2A. She will be joining us from her current role as a Leading Teacher at Northern Bay College where among other responsibilities she has been the leader of the Prep to Year 2 classes at the Hendy Street campus. She will be visiting to meet her class on Thursday.
We have also appointed Shane Kennedy to the position of Leading Teacher with responsibility for developing parental engagement. This area of is one of our strategic goals within our new four year plan written following our review at the end of term 3. I would like to congratulate Shane on this promotion. His class teaching role with next year’s Year 6 group is unaffected by this appointment.
