End of Year News

We have had a very busy final couple of weeks of the 2022 school year. Student Achievement Report packages were emailed home in week 9 to allow for parents and teachers to meet.

We had very a very successful PP-6 Presentation Night and year 7-11 Presentation Assembly. Congratulations to all award recipients. Thank you so much to all those who generously donated awards. A big thank you to Mrs Davey, Mrs Downes, Mrs Evans, Mrs Hodder and the 2022 Student Councillors for organising and hosting the events. Thank you to our wonderful staff and of course all of our amazing students.

I thank the following staff who have completed contracts or are retiring: Mrs Kathy Couper, Mrs Robyn Stephen, Mr James Hartley, Ms Denise Guymer, Mrs Kylie Wynne, Ms Monique Hall, Mrs Joyce Reynolds and Mrs Robyn Sweetman (retiring). A special mention of Mrs Donelle Forsyth, who is retiring after 30 years as a teacher at Dongara DHS. We also say a short term farewell to Mrs Dana Owen (Semester 1), Miss Montana Owen (2023) and Mrs Vanessa Wellstead (Term 1) as they are taking well deserved leave.

In the final week of term many of our students achieved Good Standing and were involved in special end of year reward activities or excursions.

Milo were the winners of the 2022 Coote Cup and Nhargo were the recipients of the 2022 Team Spirt Award. Congratulations to Milo and Nhargo students and staff.

On behalf of the Dongara DHS community I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. I look forward to seeing you at the start of the 2023 school year.

Kind Regards

Janine Calver
