Hello members of the Dodges Ferry Primary School community. This is Andy Bennett (Principal). I am writing to let you know about an unexpected change of leadership at our school that happened at the very end of last week. I have been offered and accepted the principal role at Sorell School after Rosanne McDade, the substantive principal of Sorell School, agreed to take up a position in the Education Performance Service division of the Department. I will take on the Sorell role from Wednesday 3 February the day that students begin the school year. At this stage the position is for the first two terms of 2016. In my absence Pieta McKay (see photo) will be principal at Dodges Ferry. Pieta has recently transferred into our school as substantive Assistant Principal after 15 years as a teacher and senior leader at Rose Bay HS. Pieta is excited to be part of the school community and to be taking on the principal role and I am confident the school will continue to develop under her leadership. I know you will join me in wishing Pieta well. I hope many of you are able to drop in and introduce yourselves to Pieta over the first few weeks I am excited by the new challenge but also sad to be leaving Dodges where I have been principal since 2003. In that time it has been a delight to be a member of the school community and work with you to make our school strong. I am proud of what we achieve together each day. If I return to Dodges Ferry I look forward continuing the work of school principal and the relationships with students, families, staff and the broader community that have been such a valued part of my professional and personal life. If I do not I would like to thank you for your support of the school and me and wish you all the best for 2016 and beyond.
