A message from the Superintendent

Good afternoon everyone,

The attached letter is addressed to parents and guardians, providing an overview of highlights from the government’s legislative changes to public education, introduced today as the Education Reform Act. Please distribute to parents and guardians.

I understand that you, along with all teaching staff will receive a separate communication sent directly from EECD.

You have already received an invitation from Chris and I look forward to meeting with you tomorrow.

Thank you,
