Principal’s News: Term 1 week 7

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we are now in Week 7 of Term 1 and Mr Melling informs me that the swimming lessons went very well and that the students were well behaved and enthusiastically participated in the lessons.

On Thursday 21st March, members of our interschool sports teams will be participating in a summer carnival to be held at Sutherland Park Gosnells.  I wish our Girls Cricket, Boys Cricket and the Softball teams all the very best.  I am sure you will follow the tradition of Yale with your excellent sportsmanship and behaviour.  Parents are welcome to attend to loudly support our teams.

 The P&C recently held their Annual General Meeting at Yale Primary School in the shed at 4.30 pm on the 28th February. The meeting was well supported by the community with 13 parents attending and two members of administration team. Office bearer’s nominations were put forward and accepted and then endorsed by those present at the meeting. I would like to congratulate the following office bearers who have been endorsed by at the AGM; Mrs Yolanda Honey for President, Mrs Katie Dellaca Vice President, Mrs Kristin Perry Secretary and Mrs Jessica Blackall Treasurer. Well Done!

On Thursday the 21st March, we will be holding our inaugural School Board Meeting as we commenced this school year as an Independent Public School.  We will have discussions about the direction the school will take over the next three years.  We will also discuss possible priorities, objectives, data and milestones.  We will also begin to discuss and commence writing the school’s Business Plan 2019-2021 which when completed will be posted on our school’s web page.
