LETTER FROM NATHAN

Hi everybody

I am very excited and grateful to be back at work after my extended period of leave. When I arrived as Principal in January, I was instantly impressed by the welcoming and friendly community that is Moggill State School. Throughout my period of leave, I continued to receive regular well-wishes from members of our community and I can sincerely say that it was appreciated.

My intention and desire was always to return to Moggill as Principal for 2019 and as a result of significant support from the region, I have been able to return through a graduated work plan this term. Evidently, I am not a very good patient and have been eager to return to work for some time now, so I am a very happy person this week.

As you are aware, I will be working alongside Mrs Raylee Davies this term. Mrs Davies is an exceptional Principal and I look forward to learning from, and with her over the coming months. I know you will make her feel as welcome as I felt when I arrived at Moggill.

Mr Nathan Freeman
Acting Principal

SCHOOL OPINION SURVEY

All parents are invited to participate in this year's School Opinion Survey and have your say about what our school is doing well. On Wednesday 24 July, the eldest child in each family will bring home a blue school opinion survey sheet in an envelope. This sheet provides families with a web address and an individual code and password. The survey can be completed on any computer, tablet or smart phone with internet. All instructions are provided on this sheet. 

All surveys will be due for completion by Friday 23 August 2019. Please contact a member of the Leadership Team if you have any questions about the survey.

Have a fantastic week.

WELCOME TO TERM 3

Welcome back to the start of another exciting new term. The school has been buzzing with excitement as the students have settled back into school and their classroom routines. Thank you to all the families and staff who have welcomed me to the Moggill school community. As a school community, you should be commended for the friendliness and kindness that has been shown.

I look forward to working with the staff and students as we continue to build upon the great work that has been started this year.

This term promises to be filled with many events, excursions and wonderful opportunities for learning for the students across the school.
