Official Visit to Windorah State School
Thank you very much for your warm welcome.
I have wanted to come and visit you ever since the staff and students of Windorah State School visited me at Government House on the 26th of August 2014.
I was only one month into my term, so I was a bit nervous when I invited them all into the Governor’s study at Fernberg.
The students seemed very knowledgeable about our State and its system of government, and I didn’t want get anything wrong!
What I remember most about that visit is that the students were very proud of their school, and very proud to come from Windorah.
Now that I am here, I can understand why they were so proud, because this is a very special school.
I’ve been reading your newsletters, and I know you’ve been making good use of your new laptops, and that your Principal has enrolled you all in Mathletics and Reading Eggs.
I was recently at St Peter Chanel Primary School in Brisbane, and they told me they competed against each other, and against students at others schools, in Mathletics – do you do that too?
I know things are very busy here at Windorah, and that some of you have come back from Sports Camp while others are getting ready to go to Tallebudgera for camp.
So while I have you all together, there is one special group of people I want to thank, and that is your parents.
Your parents are your first teachers, and I know that here at Windorah they work in partnership with the Principal, educators and staff to make sure you get a fine education.
