It is with great sadness that I inform you all of the passing of a beloved past staff member Mrs Trudy Weekes. Trudy was diagnosed with cancer approximately 3 years ago and passed last night after showing much courage and strength during this challenging time. I met with staff to inform them of this news and as you can image this is a difficult, sad and reflective time for all. Please be aware that during this time, various support actions will be in place for staff and this may result in some teachers not being on class for some periods of time.
I am aware that there may be some siblings of past students who will be sad to hear this news and ask that if you are concerned, or if your child needs time to grieve please ensure that they have the support around them at this time. We would also appreciate parent/s letting us know so we can ensure a smooth transition back into the school environment and be aware of their sadness.
If you have any concerns or questions please direct them to the office, myself or Deputy Principals. Teachers will also direct you to the office at this time. We are working with Regional Office to ensure we are supporting our staff, their grief and needs at this time, as well as our student cohort.
