Welcome to week 3’s newsletter.
During the past 6 weeks there have been a number of employment panels for leadership positions run throughout the school. I would like to thank all panel members for their hard work and commitment in ensuring Long Street is well served by the winning applicants. I am pleased to announce that Mrs Jodie Turpin was successful in winning the Senior Leader Literacy position for 4 years. Mrs Turpin has been influential as a leader for the past 2 years and I look forward to the work she will continue to provide our staff, students and families. Mrs Rebecca O’Neil was successful in winning the Wellbeing Leader for the next 3 years. Mrs O’Neil has been at Long Street for over 5 years and has undertaken many important roles within our school. I look forward to the work she too will provide for the staff, students and families. There was one other panel that sat for a Senior Leader Numeracy position for 4 years. There was no applicant appointed at this time. This panel will resit before the end of the school year. This position will be offered for a 1 year contract.
This time of year is extremely busy with many significant events to look forward too. Our annual Christmas and music festival is always a highlight. This year promises to be nothing short of awesome. Awards night, is also an amazing ceremony where students receive recognition for their efforts. Year 7 aquatics to Port Augusta is a highly rewarding program we have been participating in for over 20 years.
