Wel­come to Julatten SS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS @SCHOOL -

JULATTEN State School has re­cently wel­comed two new mem­bers of staff.

Per­ma­nent prin­ci­pal Mrs Gaye Love­lock started in Term 2 and has had a busy few weeks with Small Schools Cross Coun­try Car­ni­val, An­zac Day, Year 4/5/6 Camp and mov­ing house to Julatten.

Mrs Love­lock has worked in ed­u­ca­tion for over 36 years, start­ing as an Early Child­hood teacher in Cen­tral Queens­land. She spent the past few years as Head of Cam­pus at In­ji­noo, P-6 cam­pus of North­ern Penin­sula Area State Col­lege, lo­cated close to Ba­m­aga.

Mrs Love­lock was a first time prin­ci­pal at Chilla­goe State School, where she learnt the im­por­tance of ac­tive and re­spon­si­ble school lead­er­ship in a ru­ral com­mu­nity.

Mrs Love­lock is im­pressed with Julatten stu­dents’ love of learn­ing, pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and the over­all nur­tur­ing ethos of the school.

Mrs Joanne War­bur­ton ar­rived in Julatten this month to be­gin her ap­point­ment as class teacher for Years 4/5/6.

Mrs War­bur­ton has moved from the Sun­shine Coast where she was a spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port teacher.

She spent seven years in Kuwait and Egypt as an in­ter­na­tional teacher and drama co-or­di­na­tor.

Mrs W is al­ready in­volved in Stu­dent Coun­cil with stu­dent lead­ers and is look­ing for­ward to a spe­cial year of build­ing re­la­tion­ships with the whole school com­mu­nity.

Julatten staff are work­ing with P&C on plans for the beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of the school en­try, with new path­ways, gar­dens and eas­ier pub­lic ac­cess to the of­fice.

Mrs Love­lock is keen to ad­vance these plans to at­tract com­mu­nity pride and well-de­served con­fi­dence in the school. Both new staff mem­bers be­lieve they are priv­i­leged to be ap­pointed and wel­comed by such car­ing stu­dents, par­ents, fam­i­lies, staff and the com­mu­nity.
