Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP, has welcomed the newly-established Fernhill School, as it officially opened its doors to students at the beginning of the school term.
Fernhill School is a $16.1 million, purpose-built facility, which will accommodate up to 160 students from Kindergarten through to Year 12, catering for young people with intellectual and physical disabilities.
“It was a pleasure to speak with Principal Julie Raciborska, teachers, staff, students and parents at Fernhill School, discussing the wonderful opportunities that will be afforded to our community, as a result of this desperately-needed school, in supporting all of our children in Mulgoa to reach their full potential,” Tanya Davies said.
Tanya Davies was particularly impressed by the passion, excitement and enthusiasm of all the teachers and staff, with a particular emphasis on providing exacting standards on delivering best-quality education for all of the students that will attend Fernhill School.
“I have been blown away by the sense of community that is already developing at Fernhill School, a sure sign that students and staff alike will thrive,” said Tanya Davies.
Principal Julie Raciborska expressed her eagerness and anticipation in her new role.
“I am extremely privileged to be the Principal of this wonderful school and am thoroughly enjoying working with families and staff to develop the skills of all the students enrolled – it’s an exciting learning journey,” Principal Raciborska said.
“Throughout my conversations, what has really been emphasised is the fact that Fernhill School is committed to providing a holistic education for students, something that I am incredibly excited by the prospect of,” Tanya Davies said.
