What an amazing group of students we have the privilege of working with! We are all incredibly proud of their achievements and successes in the face of the uncertainty that has characterised this year. It is with pride I look back at the huge variety of learning experiences our students have been able to take part in this year; ranging from an array of in-school-learning, assemblies, whole school performances and museum trips. After our return to the school building our students have been out and about, for PE lessons and other lessons such as Art. As the school year has come to an end, memories that will stay with many of our students and teachers have been created during their recent trips and the Covid-19 compliant school performances will remain a memory for many years to come.
I would like to express a huge thanks to all our staff in their dedication and commitment providing excellent education for your children this year. It has been amazing to see how they rose to the challenge of online digital learning, delivering outstanding lessons and offering support to students during a difficult time. We are fortunate to have so many talented teachers and assistants in our school.
We are also grateful for all the help and support that we enjoy from you as parents. The partnership with the Parents’ Committee as well as the parents' contribution to the life of the school are significant factors to the Birralee community spirit and instrumental to our children's growth.
Last but not least, a big thank you to all our unique students! It has been a delight to see them develop and progress this year and a real privilege to be part of their education.
Congratulations to our graduating students, who will now embark on a new chapter in their lives. We look forward to hearing about your new endeavours and ventures.
I wish you all an absolutely wonderful summer!
