Dear Parents, Guardians and the Community
Welcome back to Term 2. I am very excited to have been appointed to Mullaloo
Beach Primary School while Mr Davies is enjoying his well-deserved leave. I
thank all staff and parents for the warm welcome I have received into the Mullaloo
Beach community.
I have held both Deputy Principal and Principal positions in a variety of
government schools over the past 16 years. This has included Principal of a small
Wheatbelt school with 17 students to larger metropolitan schools and most
recently as Principal at Tuart Hill Primary School.
I am passionate about public education and strive to create the best conditions
within a school to ensure all students receive a high quality education. The single
biggest influence on student performance is teacher quality. I am a firm believer
in supporting teachers to be the very best they can be. We are fortunate to have
a very dedicated and hardworking staffing group who put students first.
Students are at the forefront of every decision I make in a school. My motto is “If
it’s good for kids, then do it”.
The partnership between the school and parents is crucial and one I actively
promote. I believe in open and transparent communication and encourage
parents to make an appointment if you have anything you would like to discuss.
I look forward to working with the School Board and the P&C this year to support
student learning.

ARTLOOK AfterAfter-School Program

Year 4-6 has recommenced. Every Tuesday this term in room
7, 3:00pm to 4:00pm. At no cost.
Liz Moores and Sandy Sturmer, CoCo-ordinating Teachers.
The Canteen will be closed this week. We will advise you when the
Canteen will reopen. Apologies for any inconvenience, Erin Ranson
Canteen Manager.
Another successful Easter Hat Parade was held on Friday 27th March. Thanks go
to all the parents who helped out in their construction. The children obviously
loved the assistance, particularly those parents who came into the school to help.
Check out the pics!
It is timely to remind parents about the
40km/h speed limit around the school during
peak periods in the morning and afternoon.
Please be cautious when dropping off and
picking up your child. We had a parent who
dropped off their children near the staff car park opened the car door and the
children ran across the staff car park on their own to the school building. One of
the children is a Pre Primary student. Parents of Pre Primary students are
requested to bring their children to the classroom and wait with them until the
door is opened at 8:40am.
