New principal starts at Pretty Beach
Pretty Beach Public School's new principal has officially commenced her duties.
Ms Karen Wardlaw was announced as the school's new principal at the end of Term 2 after former principal Ms Deborah Callendar retired.
Ms Wardlaw started as principal in Term 3 and reflected on her first two weeks on the job in the school's newsletter.
"I am delighted to introduce myself as principal," Ms Wardlaw said.
"I am so pleased to be in the position of leading such a school, supporting a great team of teachers and investing in the lives of our student.
"I look forward to getting to know families a little better as the term progresses.
"I have been very impressed by the calm and settled start to the term by all students and acknowledge the wonderful sense of community support that is tangibly evident within the school.
"I am slowly getting to know student names and faces and have been made to feel quite special by their interest in getting to know me and, in the process, sharing a little about themselves, too.
"I have been impressed by the wonderful good manners and articulate conversational skills of our students and the friendly welcome I have received in every classroom I have visited.
"I also had the pleasure of attending the 2019 Festival of Instrumental Music at the Sydney Opera House recently and cheering loudly as the name of Pretty Beach Public School was called out."
