A Special Thank-You

I would like to share this with you.

Hi Guys,
A big thanks to Sonya and all the grade for hosting our visit on Tuesday. Anne and I were really impressed by how the whole grade worked on the maths task using their iPads. The sharing on the big TV at the end of the session gave us a sense of what we’d like to see more of at our school, Footscray West PS. Kepp up the great work and look after Sonya!

Thanks also to Mr Dudgeon, he too must be very proud of how you are all working together.

Cheers
Brendan Millar
Principal
Footscray West PS

We should all be so proud of what we are achieving.
