We have three new teachers starting at Drysdale Primary School today. Caitlyn Evans is taking over from Jackie Smith as the teacher of 2A while Nicole Alonso continues as the school’s Acting Assistant Principal leading our inclusion program. Steff McGeorge has moved to a new position with the South West Victoria regional office. Prep M will be taught by a partnership of Deb Rodgers and Natalie Greenhough. I would like to welcome them all to Drysdale Primary.
Towards the end of last term three teachers let me know that they are expecting babies later in the year. Steff McGeorge, Andy Thornton and Brooke Burgess are pregnant and looking forward to babies in the spring. I would like to congratulate all three of them. We will begin the appointment process to replace Andy and Brooke and let the school community know who will be taking over from them once this is concluded. This usually takes six to eight weeks.
