SEASON’S GREETINGS TO EVERYONE
This is our final newsletter for 2002. It’s a very
special one for several reasons. On the second page you will find
our farewells and thanks to staff who are moving on, with a letter
from Brian too. There is a snapshot of our annual report for 2002,
which informs our school community of our successes and achievements
for this past year. Of course, there is also information about next
year’s classes and the many final events that we are now holding.
We wish you all
a happy, safe and relaxing holiday and look forward to seeing you in
2003. Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

PARENT RECOGNITION AWARDS
Congratulations to Lee
Brine, Sandie and Trevor Sherriff and Ian Tattersall for their
outstanding contributions to our school. They were acknowledged for
their efforts at our Thank You Morning Tea on Tuesday. We thanked
the almost 200 parents who have helped make this another successful
year at Happy Valley. We also thanked the many other parents who
have spent years providing support in a myriad of ways and are
leaving the school. We wish them all the best with their
involvement in High School.
