POOWONG Consolidated School welcomed 137 primary students back this year with eight new students enrolled.

In addition, the school received four more full-time teachers and three more educational support staff to provide assistance to students and staff across the school.

“We welcomed new graduates Amy Rosewarne and Kate Buntine to our school as full time-teachers and gained a previous casual teacher, Caroline Wilson, to full-time. Meredith Birnie joins us as our music specialist program teacher,” school administrator Katelyn Drew said.

Kalina Brew and Michelle Turner continue in their role as primary maths specialists, supporting staff and students.

“Our specialist program includes PE, music and art. We have a very exciting music production coming up later in the year, so stay tuned,” Ms Drew said.

Over the holidays, shade sails at the primary school were replaced over the playgrounds, ground maintenance was undertaken and a few extra air conditioners have been installed, along with a full security upgrade including new alarm system.

The school and students have had a busy start to the year with a rotation day this week aimed at familiarising the community with the schools values. Coming up, the school looks forward to district, division and regional swimming, peer mediation, school photos, swimming trials and ‘pancake day’ this term.
