STAFF CHANGES AND FAREWELLS
has been at our school as an SSO for 12 years.
Jan has been on leave this year and she hasnt been her bright,
busy self around the school, as we all remember her.
However, we were sad to hear that she was resigning, to continue
working, in a city book store with books; one of her great loves.
Jan has supported many teachers and students over the years and her
busy, efficient, friendly manner will really be missed.
We wish her well in her new direction.
would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff for their excellent
contribution to the work and happiness of our school over this year.
Their hard work and committed approach are appreciated and really
valued in our school.
We also thank our school families, children and parents, for their happy involvement in our school over the year. You do make it a wonderful place to be!
To our Year 7 students, best wishes for the future as you move on to secondary schooling. We hope you have fond memories of your primary years. To those families who are leaving Happy Valley, we wish you every success in your new school communities.
From the Happy Valley School Staff we wish all our families a Very Merry Christmas, a prosperous New Year and a very enjoyable holiday time with your families!
