This week, I approved the Master Plan for SAEPS new building works commencing in December this year. After meeting with architects, Victorian Schools Building Authority (VSBA) and SESUM, we consulted with staff, parents and school council who have all endorsed the Master Plan as it utilizes space and opens up our school yard. The next stage of planning is the design stage where we will work with the VSBA and architects to design classrooms, offices etc. It is anticipated that building works will be completed by the end of 2020.
Footy finals are amongst us and to celebrate our Australian tradition we are hosting a Football Day Lunch on Thursday 19th September. Notices have been distributed to students to order a special lunch as well as come dressed in their favourite football team colours. It is also with great pleasure that I inform our community that we will have a number of our Deaf Students signing the Australian National Anthem at the AFL Grand Final. This will be such a great opportunity for our students and to promote our wonderful school. Can I thank Paula Grimmer our AUSLAN Interpreter who is preparing and working with our students. Be sure to watch our students perform on television on grand final day.
