Last week we conducted a number of days of interviews to confirm our staffing for 2016. At the conclusion of this process I can confirm that Alice Adams has been appointed as our Music teacher and Ryan Edwards has been appointed as our Physical Education teacher whilst Dave Stevens has secured a classroom teaching position for 2016. In addition to these three appointments the school has also appointed three graduate teachers for 2016. Deanne Hocking and Jessica Edgar will be joining our staff as Graduate teachers after completing their studies at La Trobe University. Deanne and Jessica both come to their positions with some experience of Strathfieldsaye Primary School with Deanne having volunteered in Prep and Physical Education classes during the year and Jessica Edgar having been a member of our school council for the last two years through the Community Doors Program. The school will also be welcoming Georgina Freeland who will be relocating from Horsham in 2016 to take up a teaching position at Strathfieldsaye Primary School. Georgina comes to us with two years of experience at Horsham and we believe she will be a great addition to our team. This completes our staffing for next year and will now allow the teaching teams to be decided upon and for teachers to begin planning in their new teams for the 2016 year.
