The Weekly Wrap – Term 3 Week 6 – 2021

Thank you for taking the time to read through this week’s weekly wrap to keep up to date with current school happenings. 

We especially look forward to the following Book Week activities this week.

Kind regards – Paul, Rob and Nicky.

School Services Officer (SSO) Week

Last week we formally thanked and acknowledged the wonderful contribution our School Service Officers (SSOs) make to our school community. Our SSOs undertake a wide range of roles in our school, in the areas of administration and learning support.

Our admin team of SSOs help manage, coordinate, plan and run a wide range of school operations including: front of house duties, first aid, finance, facilities, ICT, grounds, special functions and much more – the list is endless.

Our learning support team of SSOs keep our library functioning well, manage our ICT network, provide special needs support, work with large and small groups of students as well as providing one on one support for others. 

Most importantly, SSOs at Craigburn work as a collaborative team sharing roles and generously stepping in to support each other and staff as the need arises. 

On behalf of the whole school community we would like to express the appreciation we have for each and every one of them.  We are grateful to have the following people working with us at Craigburn:

  • Front Office Admin and Finance 
    • Bronwyn Johnson, Chelsee Clarke, Sam Slattery
  • Learning Support
    • Aileen Nagy, Krysten Pattison, Lorraine Lohmeyer, Julianne Lehmann, Jack Walton, Sophie McDonald, Aimee Johnson and Hannah Hosking.
