Lily's first day of Yr 3


After a little sadness of not being in the same class as some of her friends, Lily is most excited to have her very first male teacher. She has spent time with the odd male casual & the RFF/ computer teacher for the past couple of years has been a male but all her class teachers to this point have been ladies, so it's all very new & exciting. Being such a big school classes won't be finalised for a week or so & then they still have to be placed into their respective classes for Numeracy & Literacy which of course also means getting to know 2 more teachers! I am thrilled at the prospect of her having a male teacher as I have such fond memories of both Yrs 3 & 4 when I was taught by male teachers, my Yr 4 teacher Mr Costello being the one who really stands out in my mind as having made the most wonderful & profound contribution to my education.
