Today our community said thank you and goodbye to our retiring Principal, Kathy Terrell. A whole school assembly was held in the morning, led by our student leaders group who thanked Ms Terrell for her positive contributions to Craigburn over the last three and a half years. Our Governing Council chairperson, Kerrin Burrow also thanked Kathy and publicly acknowledged her leadership and service to our school community.
Kathy also had the opportunity to visit classrooms for the remainder of the day – with each class presenting a small token / gift. A final celebratory farewell with staff was enjoyed after school.
Kathy has enjoyed a long and distinguished career as an educator in SA public schools – 47 years in total, with Craigburn PS being her highlight.
I would like to personally acknowledge Kathy for her excellent work as Principal of Craigburn PS. Kathy has been a highly dedicated leader who has worked very hard to make our school one of the best schools in South Australia.
Best wishes Kathy, we hope you have a long, healthy and enjoyable retirement.
