Steff McGeorge will be leaving Drysdale Primary to take up her new role working for the South West Victoria Regional Office as one of their visiting teachers supporting students with a hearing impairment. Steff has been a Prep teacher at Drysdale Primary for the last eight years. During this time she has shown a great devotion to the children and a commitment to their learning. I would like to thank her for this work and wish her well in her new role.
Blanche Denmead has been asked to continue as Acting Principal at Newcomb Park Primary for Term 2. This means that Nicole Alonso will continue here at Drysdale Primary as our Assistant Principal in charge of our inclusion program. Jackie Smith who has been teaching 2A during Term 1 is unavailable to continue as she is getting married and taking some extended leave. 2A will be taught by Caitlyn Evans. I would like to thank Jackie for her work teaching 2A this Term and wish her well for her future. I would also like to acknowledge the quality of Nicole’s leadership in our inclusion program. This is a busy and demanding role but a hugely significant part of what we offer at Drysdale Primary.
