Nelson Mandela Park Public School
June 2016 Principal’s Message
As we come to the end of another school year, there is much for us to be proud of as our students demonstrated genuine growth in many areas. We have continued to strive for excellence in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) and this is evidenced by the rich learning around STEAM that has occurred in our classrooms and lab spaces this year. In particular "The Maker" space we created with our 3D printer has been an exciting hub of hands on and engaging learning where students have brought to life various projects they drew up using Tinkercad.
We thank our staff for all their efforts to support student learning and achievement. We also thank our families for all they have done to support our school this year. We have many staff departing to other schools and wish them the best in their new roles. We are excited by the sense of renewal that change brings and welcome all the new staff who will be joining us for September. In partcular, I would like to thank VP Ainsworth Morgan for his many years of service to the Regent Park community as a teacher, Vice-Principal and active community member. We wish him the best as he moves on to become the newly appointed Principal of Pelmo Park PS. Our new Vice-Principal will be Diana Fitzgerald, a former teacher at Regent Park/Duke of York PS and most recently Rose Ave PS. She is very excited to be joining the Nelson Mandela Park PS community!
We wish everybody a safe and enjoyable summer, and look forward to everybody coming back in September well rested and ready for another wonderful year of learning and growing together!
