Happy holidays! We hope everyone is having a great break and we’re looking forward to hearing all about it.
This is a great article, it highlights one of the main reasons our school exists. It’s so important to allow children the space to simply be themselves, after all isn’t that what life is all about? To be happy.
As term two comes to a close we wanted to take a moment to recognize our principal, Kiri Pearce.
As a new school we have faced challenge after challenge, including a flood and a pandemic, and through it all Kiri has demonstrated remarkable strength and resilience, proving herself as a true leader.
Kiri’s passion and dedication to the school, to guiding our teachers and students and to the larger goal of changing the face of education in North Queensland have been incredible to witness and we watch in awe as she paves the way with her egalitarian nature and embodiment of our school values in every aspect.
We believe that it is because of these skills and attributes that she has been nominated in Australian Education Awards for Primary School Principal of the year (thank you to the anonymous person who nominated her, whoever you are!).
Kiri, thank you for everything you do for our little school and for our students, you are incredible. ♥️
Enkindle Village School would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional custodians of the Townsville Region; the Bindal and Wulgurukaba people and their Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.
