Farewell & Merry Christmas message from Mrs Broz
What a year it’s been. I sincerely want to thank you all for being so understanding, so compliant and just so caring, through a very difficult year. A lot of people have been asking how we are going to operate next year. Well I’m not going to make any guesses about that as we know how quickly things can change, but I will definitely let you know through connect, before the beginning of the year.
It was a very sad farewell to our amazing year 6 group this year. Ms Dagostino has been very fortunate to have such a group of lovely caring students who all look out for each other. I hope that the bonds they have made will last through their lifetime.
Whilst there are many people to thank, for all they have done this year, I especially want to single out our School Council. Together with the staff, we have been working on a new direction for the school which is very much focused on CREATING A CARING, CONNECTED COMMUNITY. I really look forward to furthering our plan with the support of the council in 2021.
In fact I am looking forward to everything about 2021. I think it’s going to be a great year. I wish you all the best for the holidays. Stay safe and happy and I will see you next year.

From your P&C
This year has once again highlighted what a wonderful community we belong to at Curtin Primary. Thank you to everyone for your contributions throughout the year – they all add up to deliver a special experience for our children. There are many ways parents and families have made a difference this year including, but not limited to –
- attending P&C meetings and sharing ideas
- filling office bearing positions and associated duties
- donating to our cakes stalls and raffles
- organising events, fundraising activities and projects
- volunteering time at events and for special projects
- participating in events and fundraising activities
- promoting Curtin Primary School in our wider community
- supporting each other and continuing to build a strong sense of community
We appreciate each and every one of you and your efforts.
On behalf of the P&C I would like to thank all of the staff at Curtin Primary who work hard to make our school a fantastic place for our children to be. Not only have our teaching staff done an amazing job, but so have all of our supporting team members. We notice the effort you put into keeping the school clean and gardens growing, that you take our phone calls, answer our questions, work hard to improve communications (a weekly newsletter doesn’t happen by magic) and do all manner of jobs that we don’t even know about. More than this you clearly care about our children, we notice the way you talk kindly to them, help them when they need it and make them feel special.
We are looking forward to another fantastic year in 2021 as we continue to build on the great things that are already happening. Our P&C AGM will be held on Tuesday February 9 at 7pm in the staffroom. All our welcome and encouraged to attend, join in the fun and help make things happen. All positions will be declared vacant at the AGM, if you are interested in holding an office bearing role in 2021 or have any questions please send an email to Kelly Muller – firstname.lastname@example.org
