I think every one of us, students parents and staff, left the oval today feeling very proud and fortunate to be a part of this school. For me personally, I have had opportunities to move away from schools into other roles in education or beyond, but something holds me back. Seeing and feeling the camaraderie and spirit of our school today while walking around talking to parents and kids, or helping run the carnival, reminded me why I'm still working as a principal in a government primary school, and there is not a better one than ours.
The carnival today had a nice blend of competition, participation and fun (the latter beautifully captured by the picture below of Miss Tew running down the track in her tutu (tew-tew?). A feature of Geographe is the Education Support Centre, and it was fantastic to see the way GPS students included, supported and encouraged their friends from GESC.
Have a wonderful holiday everyone!
