Gippsland Grammar news: Dec 11, 2020

Dec 11, 2020 | Community News

As I write this on what is the first day of holidays for our students, I am thrilled to reflect on a wonderful week of celebrations we have shared.  From the Santa visit enjoyed by our ELC students through to Year 6 Valedictory services at both of our Junior Campuses and then finally the Celebration Afternoon at Garnsey Campus yesterday.

2020 will evoke many and different memories for each of us and this can also be said for people across not only our Community but also our country and even the world. While there have been many challenges I hope that the positives remain at the forefront of our minds.

With that in mind, I would like to acknowledge our entire staff as it is through their hard work and efforts that the performance and reputation of our School continues to strengthen. Our teachers have been constantly active in their own learning and they have been determined, persistent and vulnerable in their desire to improve practice for the benefit of all students.

Thank you to the support staff as their contribution has a direct impact on what our students and teachers can achieve. Collaboration and lifelong learning are evident throughout the support staff and I commend their diligence to you all. 

It has been my privilege to journey through the last three terms of 2020 with you. May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and commitment to the education of your children. I feel blessed to be part of your child’s life.  

In closing, let the picture of Baby Jesus in the manger give us a message. That worldly things are not important; what matters most is the richness that we have in our hearts.

May you be blessed with the spirit of the season, which is peace; the gladness of the season, which is hope; and the heart of the season, which is love.

Thank you all for a wonderful year and I look forward to seeing you in 2021.

Warm regards,
Leisa Harper
