June 2015

Dear Parents,
As the end of this school year draws to an end, I am certain that you look forward, as we all do, to have those well-deserved, “timeless” sunny days of summer we enjoy with family and friends. Before we leave on holiday however, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your encouragement and support this year. It means a great deal to me.  To the parents on Governing Board and Home and School, I can’t thank you enough for your endless dedication and commitment to the Nesbitt community and your fundraising efforts. You have truly made a difference in our school and I count myself extremely fortunate to have worked collaboratively with you, so as to enhance our children’s learning experiences.  May you all have a happy, healthy and restful summer!
