Message from Sally
On Friday 30th October I attended an awards ceremony as one of the four finalists in the Outstanding Primary School Principals category selected from across the state. The Victorian Education Excellence Awards celebrate educational excellence by recognising the outstanding achievements and practice of education professionals.
The Outstanding Primary School Principal award was presented to Leanne Edwards from Bass Valley PS. While I was disappointed momentarily, I realised what incredible professional company I was with. The entire process has given me cause to reflect on my achievements as Principal of North Melbourne Primary School since 2007.
Again, I would like to recognise the staff at our school who have been so encouraging in the led up to this award. Their commitment to provide extraordinary learning opportunities and to support students to become positive contributors to their local, national and global communities is now well acknowledged with tin the Department of Education and Training.
Thanks also to the parents, carers and North Melbourne Community who make this school a truly multi-cultural and diverse place to learn together, to achieve great results.
Victorian State Government states:
Recognising great work is not enough. We want these awards to show the wider community what excellence in public education really looks like. We want the community to understand what you do every day to make a difference to young lives.

Reno Day on Friday 20 November
This weekend I will be organising my work boots & overalls in preparation for the Block Busters Super School Restoration Reno Day. I look forward to seeing you roll your sleeves up and pop in for what ever time frame you can manage.
