Dear Uplands community

Welcome to the new academic year and to our new-look Uplands Newsletter. We’ve taken on board comments and feedback from students, parents and staff and hope that we’ve produced something you’ll want to read. It’s filled with pictures and briefer news items that we hope you’ll find easier to digest and enjoy. I would like to thank the Marketing team for their help in preparing this document and the also the IT department (Mr Aznan in particular) for all their continued support and assistance. At this stage, we will be publishing the newsletter every two weeks. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the new document.

I hope that you enjoyed the holiday and that you all had a good chance to unwind and reflect on the year. I am very pleased to announce that staff and students have hit the ground running this year. It’s wonderful to have the children around again after 2 weeks of staff training. I hope that our new staff will be introduced to you over time and that you’ll make an effort to say ‘hi’ when you see them.

To our new families, I welcome you to the Uplands community. To our returners, welcome back! I hope that this year brings lots of excitement, reward and fulfilment. Things really are setup for a wonderful year.

If you have any views or concerns on any issues, please do contact the school. We look forward to hearing from you.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend

Giles Mongare
Acting Principal
