Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
Well, it is hard to believe it is December again. The staff and students have put in such a huge effort this year and should all be incredibly proud of their results. I feel very privileged to be working with such a professional and dedicated staff, we have an amazing school culture and the care that staff give to each other is outstanding.
To our wonderful families, thank you for the support that you show the school and all the people in it. We have achieved a lot this year and could not have done it without you. And finally, to the School Board and P&C I appreciate your unwavering support of the school and dedication in making it a better place for the children of Kyilla. I wish everyone a lovely Christmas and happy holiday break. Stay safe and I will see you all in the new year.
Farewell to Our Year 6 Students
We had a fabulous Graduation and Awards Ceremony this morning. It is exciting for the Year 6 students who are moving on to new adventures but sad for us as we are losing a wonderful cohort of children. Again, I would like to thank the families who have assisted the school in many different ways throughout the years. Your contributions have been very valued.
Ms Prue Livesey will be on long service leave in Term 1. Ms Rebecca Stuchbery and Mr Courtney Bridge will be sharing the role of deputy. Mr Bridge will be in the classroom for two days per week and Mrs Jaqui Smith will be sharing Year 5/6 Magenta with him (three days per week).
Miss Jacqui Hollier will be taking Year 2 Aqua. Miss Hollier is coming from Westminster Junior Primary.
I would like to acknowledge the work of Rentia Ouzman in the running of the Uniform Shop for the P&C. Rentia worked many hours to ensure our families had access to affordable uniforms and we all appreciate her efforts. To Matt Lee and others who also worked in the Uniform Shop over the years, thank you.
Kyilla’s 75th Birthday
At the beginning of next year, we will be forming a committee to help plan celebrations for our birthday bash. The plan is to have an event in October. The City of Vincent Library and Local History Centre has been very helpful in putting the word out into the community. The article below is in their latest newsletter. If you know of anyone who is a former Kyilla student who has a story to share please encourage them to contact the Local History Centre on 9273 6534 or at [email protected]
From the Deputy Principal
We have a trombone and clarinet for sale. If you are interested, please contact the school and we will pass on the parent’s details.
From the Prefects - Manna Project Food and Care Hamper
Thank you to all the parents and students who donated items to the Manna Project. We raised a total of 278.4kg and $55. All the goods were very much appreciated by the people from Manna.
