Turramurra Public School
Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai) (17:25): Turramurra Public School provides its students with a nurturing, caring and fun place to learn. During last year's end-of-year school presentation days, I made a quick stop to the school to surprise its retiring principal, Margaret Foott, with a farewell gift and short speech. For the past 11 years, Margaret has been dedicated to the best interests of Turramurra Public School. She promoted staff professional development, supported learning and wellbeing, and worked closely with the P&C. Margaret said she was blessed to have been part of an incredible community with amazing children. Although Margaret's departure was bittersweet, she certainly deserves her retirement. Margaret is looking forward to spending more time with friends and family and enjoying her love of art. At the start of this year, Mr Anthony Moran was appointed as the new principal, and I wish him well in his new role. I offer my congratulations to all the teachers and staff, the parent community and students of Turramurra Public School on providing a first-class educational environment. I look forward to visiting the school again soon.
