PRINCIPAL:                

It was great to see so many of you on Friday night. It’s a busy time of year so I know there were other events on. Thank you to all those who brought treats from your travels over the break. We have a full week with 3 consultants at AES. While it can be a challenge to juggle we are so fortunate to have the resources to bring these people here to work with us. Please remember to organise a substitute if you need coverage. Wednesday is a PD early release with Stevi Quate (unless you are a math teacher). Have a great week.
