Miss Elise Richards will be departing from Springsure State School temporarily as she takes maternity leave next year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Elise for her commitment to our students in the time she has been at Springsure State School.  She has been a valued member of our staff and we wish her the very best.

Our predicted enrolment numbers are approximately 175 next year which is just fantastic for our 'not so little' school. Over the last couple of years our numbers have increased dramatically. In fact next year, we have straight year level classes in all of the primary school and only one combined 9/10 class. 

 

Thank you

Last but not least, thank you families for a wonderful productive year. Although I have only been back a semester, it feels like I never left! The school is continuing to grow and flourish in all domains of school life, from academic achievements, to Instrumental Music and on the sporting field. Our students continue to amaze me with their enthusiasm for learning.  Next year I will working Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and every second Friday. Mrs Maria Hoare will continue as Acting Principal on Thursday and alternate Fridays. I sincerely thank Maria for her tireless work managing part-time Principalship, Head of Curriculum and teaching duties. As you can appreciate Maria is an asset to our  school and I am grateful for the commitment she shows our students and staff.  As I have said before, I am very proud to lead this school and I look forward to what 2018 brings.

 

Enjoy the summer vacation with your loved ones. Please stay safe on our roads.

 

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you and your families.

At the end of this term we farewell Miss Helen Mackay from our school and from teaching forever.   Congratulations on your retirement, Helen, and thank you for being such a great help in our school community over the past few years.  Helen has spent much of her time in rural Queensland, from working in Distance Education, as an itinerant PCAP teachers, a small school Principal, an Outdoor Education specialist and an Arts/PE teacher, among many other roles.  Enjoy this next phase of your life, Helen.  We also farewell Mrs Tine Keys at the end of next week as she takes up a position as Principal at Carmila State School.  All the best, Tine.

As we head into the Christmas season and the long-awaited holidays, I would like to wish everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas.  Enjoy your family time and appreciate the gift you are to each other.
