Dear Rapid Bay families,
Welcome back for 2021! The students have settled in nicely and our wonderful teachers and SSOs have ensured that the year has got off to a smooth start. It is so pleasing to see lots of smiling faces and students engaged with their learning. Let’s hope we have a more “normal” year and that we can return to having parents and carers attending events on site.

As you would probably know by now, our classroom teachers for the year are ;
JP class- Sarah King
MP class Jo Cramond/Jen McArdle
UP class- Bailee Holmes
Specialist Teachers - Robert Moyer - science and music
Leanne Menz - design and digital technology/PE

We are so lucky to have such a dedicated and talented group of teachers, as well as our wonderful SSOs, to work with the students of RBPS.

I would like to take the opportunity to welcome our new reception students and their families to our school. Our new reception students are Ruben, Indigo, Charlee, Charlie, Harley, Claire and Ivy. They have all settled into school life beautifully and we are so happy to have them here with us!

Thanks to all the families who attended our Acquaintance Night. We also elected our Governing Council for 2021. Our Governing Council for 2021 is
Victoria Wetherby - Governing Council Chairperson
Lucy Williss - Deputy Chairperson
Claire McKee - Secretary
Kristy Russo - Treasurer
James Potter
Suzanne Vessey
Kelly Wilson
Julianne Rilstone

I want to thank them for putting their hand up to assist with the running of the school and I look forward to working with them this year.

I look forward to an exciting and productive 2021

Kindest Regards,
Jen
My name is Bailee Holmes and I am really excited to be joining the staff here at Rapid Bay in the upper primary class this year. I was fortunate enough to complete my final university placement here last year in the Junior Primary class and am looking forward to my first year of teaching here at Rapid Bay. Having attended a small country town school myself, I have always aimed to work in a school with a close community and am privileged to have this opportunity at such a fantastic school in my first teaching role. I am greatly looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of the Rapid Bay families throughout the year!
