From The Principal

Tony Beswick

Dear Parents and Families,

As you are all aware, our Principal Dr Tony Beswick is currently on long service leave and I am acting Principal.

Prior to his departure on his great adventure of kayaking in Antarctica waters he has made a big decision. Tony has announced to the staff that he will be retiring in January and so will not be returning to Landsdale next year.

He notified the staff via email and said this about his decision:

“This is a difficult decision because Landsdale Primary has been a marvellous school. It is because of your dedication to your students and to your colleagues that it has been a joy to come to work. I have loved the staff teamwork and the keen repartee of the Leadership Team.“

He also asked me to pass on his appreciation for the support the parents and Landsdale community provide to the school and himself over his time as Principal.

There will be a selection process to appoint our new Principal early next year. I congratulate Mrs Cass Di-Sisto, who will be the Acting Principal while that selection process is initiated.

I wish Tony well in his well deserved retirement and on behalf of the staff and students thank him for his strong leadership towards building the capacity of the staff to improve student outcomes.

Last week we had our annual “Thank You” morning tea for all the parents and community members who give their time and support to help our school. Their contribution to the school is a significant part of the reason Landsdale Primary School is so successful and we appreciate their support greatly. I especially would like to thank the community members who serve on the P&C and the School Board.

I hope our Landsdale community show their amazing support by coming along and enjoying the Fete tomorrow. A huge thank you to Nat Herridge and her team of helpers!
