Congratulations to Mr Stephens on the birth of his son Ted. Trent, Lauren and Ted are doing well. Trent will be off school on paternity leave for the first couple of weeks of term.
Blanche Denmead has been appointed as the permanent Principal at Newcomb Park Primary from the start of this term. I would like to congratulate Blanche on her appointment and thank her for the outstanding work she has done in leading our inclusion program at Drysdale Primary. The appointment of an Assistant Principal is a lengthy process. I will let the community know once this is finalised which will be towards the end of this school year. In the meantime Nicole Alonso will continue as the school’s Acting Assistant Principal and leader of the inclusion program. However she is on sick leave for the next four weeks following surgery. In her absence James Field is leading the Inclusion program for the first two weeks and Lucy Croxford for weeks three and four.
We have welcomed Bec Gillet as an additional member of our Inclusion Team for the remainder of the year. Bec has been working in a similar role at Belmont Primary School.
