Greetings to the Toorak Primary School community! I’m so pleased to be back to complete the 2019 school year. While leave from my professional duties provided an opportunity for greater flexibility throughout the day, my daily purpose was somewhat blurred. Hence, my enthusiasm to be back at school. While on leave my younger daughter, Elizabeth was married in a beautiful ceremony at St Peters Eastern Hill, followed by an elaborate reception at Myer Mural Hall – two daughters married now and a son who has recently announced his engagement. My 18 month old granddaughter brought immense joy during her visits. Here she is assisting in our garden.
Yesterday I drove to visit the Year Three students at the Lady Northcote Camp. When I arrived all students and staff were enjoying a hearty lunch before heading out to a range of exciting adventure activities. The squeals of joy from students and staff on the high ropes was thrilling. I look forward to catching up with everyone as the days progress.
