Welcome Back to 2018
I would like to welcome all our students, parents and staff back to Carey Donvale for the start of what I am sure will be an exciting 2018 school year. With record enrolments, we are also thrilled to welcome a number of new students and families into our school community.
Three new staff members have joined our teaching team, and they have already made a positive contribution. Mrs Elisa Carroll is our new Literacy Co-ordinator and she is working alongside Mr Kelvin Finger in Year 3. Elisa joins us from Ivanhoe Grammar and she brings a wealth of experience. Ms Siobhan RouIston is our new teacher librarian having recently taught at Scotch College. Siobhan has taught extensively overseas and this brings an international context to her teaching. Mrs Kristy Moresi completes the trio. Kristy has kindly agreed to teach Year 4 PE on a Wednesday whilst still continuing her physical education role at Waverley Christian College.
I am confident that Elisa, Siobhan and Kristy will prove to be excellent members of the school community, and I trust they will enjoy their time here at Carey Donvale.
