Tatura Primary School students returned to the classroom last week and hit the ground running with visits to each of Tatura’s kindergartens.
‘‘This week we have made a great start to the term,’’ principal Susanne Gill said last week.
Ms Gill said students visited the Children’s Centre on Thursday last week, which included an enjoyable walk in the sunshine.
‘‘Our Grade 5 students have looked forward to these visits and had much interaction with the students who will be coming to their school next year,’’ Ms Gill said.
Students and staff also welcome new arts teacher Lauren Wangeman.
‘‘She has much experience teaching in the Goulburn Valley and is looking forward to her time with us,’’ Ms Gill said.
‘‘Lauren replaces Amanda Ross, who is taking over from Leesa Kirkman in the Foundation/One class.
‘‘We wish Leesa all the best as she leaves to have her first child in August.’’
The school’s grounds also underwent a facelift during the school holiday break.
‘‘The soccer goals went up on the Albert St side oval and we are now just keenly waiting for some nets,’’ Ms Gill said.
A watering system for the school’s sensory playground was also put in.
