Welcome to the second half of the 2018 school year. For some of you it will be a return and for others it will be a new beginning – To whom I say welcome to this great school community.
As a new face and a new personality within your beautiful school, my family and I have been welcomed with open arms and smiling faces. I'd like to take this early opportunity to introduce myself as the new Relieving Principal of Hannam Vale Public School. My name is Mr Sam Small and I'm very much looking forward to getting to know all the families in the school over the next few weeks.
My family and I are so grateful for your warmth and hospitality. Moving from my role as Principal, Ellerston Public School in the Upper Hunter with my wife and two small boys required no small effort, but, what could be more worthwhile than this? What a beautiful school, Hannam Vale Public is. It is a testament to the staff, students and community.
I will be out in the playground in the mornings and afternoons as much as possible and will also look forward to the first P&C meeting where I can talk to you in a more formal setting. If you would like to meet with me to discuss your child, or anything related to the school, please don't hesitate to make an appointment for a meeting.
Enjoy your return to school and routines. Celebrate another semester of education and growth for your families. I look forward to meeting you all.
