Lov­ing life at a new school

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

A NEW prin­ci­pal joined the Green­bushes Pri­mary School team about a month ago.

Chris Mott came from Bridgetown Pri­mary School, where he was the deputy prin­ci­pal.

Mr Mott said he had been for­tu­nate in how well his time at the 24-stu­dent school had be­gun.

“I have been very wel­comed by staff and the stu­dents and the par­ent body, which I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate,” he said.

“The school and the sur­rounds are lovely, there’s lots of good work hap­pen­ing in the school that I’m re­ally for­tu­nate to have in­her­ited.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the stu­dents, staff and the com­mu­nity to build on that good work.”

Mr Mott said hav­ing come from Bridgetown, he al­ready had an idea about the area and the peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

Be­fore his time at Bridgetown, Mr Mott had worked in re­mote schools and had been in­volved in ed­u­ca­tion for 25 years.

Mr Mott’s pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence in­cluded work­ing in the Kim­ber­ley, the War­bur­ton Ranges and Wan­nan.

“I bring a love of life and a pos­i­tive ap­proach to both ed­u­ca­tion and life and an idea to build on and work to­wards get­ting good out­comes for the kids,” he said.

Green­bushes Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Chris Mott has a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence in small schools and hopes to bring a sense of fun to his new school com­mu­nity.
