Dear Parents and Caregivers,
A warm welcome back to school for Term 2! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday break and were able to soak up the glorious weather and get ‘out and about’. A special welcome to our new students and their families. We are delighted to have you in our community and look forward to sharing our Liwara journey with all family members. We are extremely excited to be finally beginning the re-roofing-new ceilings and new air conditioning units on our Year 4/5/OSHC & Enrichment Rooms. I have a pre-start meeting on Monday 2 May when I will have more information of the actual date of site possession.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,
One more week of school! It is hard to believe we are so close to the end of Term One. A term that has brought many challenges to our usual programme of events. We wish to thank all students, staff and parents who have been so patient and understanding of the continual adjustments that have had to be made as a result of the constantly changing conditions under which we are operating. Our priority in decision making has always been in the best interest of all in the community, in particular, the safety of our staff and students and the quality and continuity of education for our students.

Dear Parents, Caregivers, Staff and Students,
As the year comes to a close, I send you my warmest wishes and blessings. May the miracle of Christmas bring you joy and happiness. I wish you contentment and peace among you and your family.

As I reflect on the 2021 year and how much we have accomplished, it is my firm belief that education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations. So I would like to thank you, parents, for providing a vital support system between the teachers to help our students flourish. As it is when both groups work together, toward the same goal, that one sees significant growth in a child’s developmental and educational outcomes. Therefore, my message to our parents as we end the year is to continue to ‘be a helping hand in the students’ learning journeys and travel with them as a true inspiration’ in the years ahead.
