Dear Parents/Caregivers of Year 2/3 (2021) class
Today we have displayed the class lists for Year 2/3 for 2021 in the undercover area, and your child will be in that class with Miss Jessica Lucas as the main teacher and Miss Bernice Carter as the Aboriginal Teaching Assistant (Full time).
This note is to inform you that Miss Jessica Lucas will be taking Long service for Term 1 and she will be replaced by Mrs Andrea Koh. The School advertised for this replacement as we wished to ensure that the best possible teacher available would be in the role for the Term to ensure the students received an excellent start to the year. We had over 15 applications and have managed to appoint a highly experienced teacher in the role for the term who I am sure the students will love and thrive under.
Mrs Andrea Koh is a teacher with 5 adult aged daughters, with over 17 years teaching experience, having taught for 5 years in Ocean Reef Primary School in Perth, before spending 9 years teaching in an International School in Singapore, much of that time as Head of Prep to Year 2, then returning to Perth to work in Metropolitan state schools. Her breadth and quantity of experience, as well as glowing verbal recommendations from her former employers have reassured me that our children and staff will be benefit from having her on our team for a term (and perhaps longer if we can convince her to stay!). I am sure you will make her feel welcome in the school community when she joins us in January.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me.
