This has been SASS Recognition Week. SASS stands for school and administrative school staff and includes all those folk who work in schools who are not teachers. At Stanmore PS this is the office staff, the school learning and support officers who support students with disabilities, our kitchen and garden specialists and the general assistant. All these people play a very important role by taking care of numerous non-teaching responsibilities so that teachers can focus on the business of teaching and learning.
We appreciate their work every week but it is good to take time in this week to reflect on the value of what they do to contribute to the quality of school life.
The Stanmore staff celebrated this week with a morning tea and presentation of flowers to all SASS personnel.
