From the CBE:
"The holiday season is upon us once again. It’s a time to celebrate and reflect
on the year that is ending.
We can’t look back on 2013 without remembering the unprecedented flood that
occurred in June. It was a difficult time for so many of our communities and
caused disruption to our year-end exams and activities. Yet, our teachers,
staff, students, parents and volunteers pulled together as a strong, supportive
community to ensure our students, schools and facilities were safe – and to
support each other and those impacted by the flood.
The dedication demonstrated at that time was inspiring and continues
throughout the year. We value your commitment to our students and schools and we
look forward to continuing to work together to support student learning.
Best wishes for a joyous holiday and for the coming new year."
