Wallington P.S. Newsletter

Term 2 - Week 1 - 2023


Principal News

Hello!

Hello to our Wallington Primary School community.  Thank you for making me feel so very welcomed in my first week.  Everyone will know this already but our teaching staff are amazing.  I have personally met with everyone and they are all fully engaged and committed to our students. 

To the many parents I’ve welcomed in the yard and those who have popped into the office to say hi, thank you very much.  Coming to a new school can be daunting but this community have welcomed me with open arms and for this I will be forever grateful.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Mr Stevens all the best for his upcoming leave commencing next week.  Mr Stevens will return to school on Tuesday, June 13.  Ms Macys will be covering this class during the whole period.  Ms Macys has already been planning with the team and will be helping with writing the student reports.  If you have any questions regarding Year 1/2 S please see Ms Macys.
