Glengala Gazette – Issue #41

THANK YOU to everyone in our community who has supported us throughout 2019. The school has had another big year with many events, amazing reading growth, opening of our brand new F-2 Learning Space! We couldn’t do it without the support of our wonderful staff and parent community.

2020 is shaping up to be another sensational year at Glengala PS. We have a passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated team of staff on board to continue to move our school into 21st century teaching and learning approaches.

We wish our Year 6 students all the very best for the next stage in their education. We know they are now equipped with many skills and attitudes that will stand them in good stead to meet the challenges associated with moving to secondary school.


At the end of the year we have a few staff who will be leaving us. We say farewell to Alex Firth who has decided to travel and work overseas in 2020. We also farewell Ling Parente from our Office Admin team. We thank each of them for their contribution to our school over 2019.

As announced earlier in the term, we will be saying a sad farewell to one of our Assistant Principals, Samantha Cunningham tomorrow. Sam has provided our school with high level educational leadership and student welfare over the past five years. On behalf of students, staff and parents, I would like to thank Sam for her support and growth of our students and staff and the significant support she has provided me over the last 5 years and wish her all the best for the next step in her career.

Start of 2020

Our school office will reopen on Tuesday 28th of January from 9am – 4pm. The office will be open for enquiries, uniform sales and school tours.
