School Board

The Millen School Board met on Thursday 29 October for a workshop session facilitated by Jethro Sercombe, proud Year 1 dad.  We were focussed on developing a short narrative that describes the special and unique nature of Millen Primary School so that it can be reflected in the new Millen Primary School Business Plan, currently being drafted. Jethro volunteered his time and led us through a really creative and meaningful session. We will share the outcome with you shortly.

Friday was World Teachers Day. Thank you to all of the superstar Millen teachers: we thank you for teaching and caring for our kids and their education.
