Welcome to 2016!

Welcome to 2016 Everyone!

I hope that you had an enjoyable break and are re-energised and ready to take on the exciting challenges of the new year!

We have some changes to our TDS team here at Sawyers Valley this year. Stephen has joined the Teaching and Learning Services team at Statewide Services and so I am now co-ordinating the TDS program alongside Sharon Humphries, Tonya Wood and Danielle Murphy (the Sawyers Valley TDS Team).  We will do our best to continue with the great work Stephen did in keeping you updated with new information.

Our focus area has also been expanded and we are now a TDS school for HASS (P-6) and Early Childhood (EYLF).

Best wishes for the start of Term 1.
