PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Great News for our School

It is my very great pleasure to use this, my final message as Principal of Iramoo PS to inform our community that the Department of Education & Training’s selection process for my replacement has concluded AND that the successful applicant is Mrs Raquel Tweedley.

This is wonderful news for all of us. Mrs Tweedley is well known and respected by students, staff and parents. I congratulate her and thank all members of the selection panel for their work at this very challenging time.

I have been on long service leave for all of first term and officially retired on Monday April 13.

On Thursday March 12, Ms Cascone, Mr Burrell and I enjoyed celebrating our retirement with staff, family, colleagues, parents and ex-students. Thank you very much to everyone who attended and to those who were unable to attend but sent us lovely cards, letters and emails.

As part of my farewell speech on March 12, I told guests that if I had to describe my 45 year career in one word it would be PRIVILEGE.

• It’s been my privilege to work with so many wonderful people, many of whom I am now proud to call my friends.

• It’s been my privilege to contribute positively to the lives of so many children.

• It’s been my privilege to meet so many wonderful families.

• It’s been my privilege to assist in the development of so many future school leaders and

• It’s been my privilege to make a significant contribution to our Victorian government school system.

We are all currently living in very difficult times but our school couldn’t be in better shape or in more capable hands. I couldn’t be prouder of Iramoo PS and its community.

Thank you again for your support of me personally over a very long period of time and for your ongoing support of our school.

Please stay safe and stay well.

Very best regards and best wishes for the future.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

MOIRA FINDLAY

It has been my very great privilege to have been Principal of Iramoo PS since 1997. I am very proud of the fact that our school has provided outstanding education for local children since it was established in 1978. Iramoo has a tradition of promoting student excellence in literacy, numeracy, physical education/sports and all areas of the arts. The school currently also provides students with specialised classes in Science, Spanish language and Information & Communication Technology including a 1:1 iPad program for all students from Years 4 -6.

Iramoo has a population of approximately 785 students and there is currently such a high demand for student placement that enrolments are restricted to students who live within the immediate neighborhood area only. This allows our school to maintain relatively small class sizes with a current average of approximately 24 students per grade arranged in 32 single year level classes from Prep to Year 6.  Iramoo is a richly diverse community where students develop strong intercultural understanding, tolerance and respectful relationships with others. Each year our stakeholder surveys show very clearly that our students, staff and parents hold the school in very high regard and our student achievement data shows excellent learning growth in all areas.

Our school is extremely well resourced and has modern buildings and grounds that are maintained to a high standard. Iramoo’s very well presented classrooms and impressive external environment have been greatly enhanced by major landscaping works in recent years providing students with six adventure playgrounds in addition to several very attractive outdoor learning and passive recreation areas.
