For the last two years, it’s been my privilege to work through the Committee to support Dani, Jodie, Helena, Diane, Jayne and Hayley to develop into the confident, skilled and enthusiastic team I’m so proud of today. I’ve always believed that real-world, experiential learning is the most enjoyable and effective for both kids and adults. It’s grand to see it play an intrinsic part in the transformation that has taken place at Preschool that is so highly valued by our children and their families. As we build on this success, I’m withdrawing from being the Chair of the committee, to enable me to focus on the development of the organisation – looking at the opportunities for extending our hours and caring for babies and young toddlers – but also collaborating with other groups in our community to continue to develop our activities. So, I’m passing the Chair’s role into the experienced hands of Mary Potsig, and I hope she gains as much from the role as I have.
Yvonne Conchie. Allendale Preschool Chair of Governing Committee Sept 2012 – Jan 2014
Hello! My name is Mary and I am the new Chairperson of the Allendale Pre-School Committee. I have been on the committee for over three years now and am very proud of the progress and improvements I’ve seen at pre-school in that time, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our fab staff. The latest survey results of pre-school users back this up, so take a look at the data if you can. Survey results link
To our current parents and carers: a big Thank You for choosing pre-school to take care of your children, and supporting us on our exciting journey. The pre-school depends on us, the parents and carers whose children attend, and those parents and carers who form the committee that oversees the running of pre-school, so if you would like to help out in any way, please let us know. If you would like to be part of shaping the future of pre-school, why not considering joining us on the committee next academic year? If you ever have any questions or comments about pre-school, please do not hesitate to ask one of the staff or committee members at pre-school, via email or the comments section on our website.
Here’s to another great year!
Mary Potsig. Allendale Preschool Chair of Governing Committee Jan 2014-onwards
