Year End -June 2022

Happy Summer Break VCE Families!


Well the time has come to have some summer fun! Before we head off, I wanted to share my appreciation for the staff, students and families.


Thank you to the outstanding VCE staff! It is the dedication of our team that makes for a great place for students to learn and thrive. We could not do it without their care, compassion and expertise. I have truly enjoyed working with everyone on our staff for the last three years.


A thank you to our PAC and VCE community for all the little and big things you do to support the school. I appreciate how invested and connected the PAC has been throughout my time here. I am grateful to have worked with you and the other parents to provide such fun and rich experiences for the students.


And then there are the students… this is why we are here and I can’t get over how wonderful the VCE students are to be around! Throughout my time here, the students have shown kind and caring attitudes, leadership, so much resilience with the uncertainty and such potential for great things! I appreciate all the conversations and sharing from the students each day and I will miss these connections. Thank you for all you bring to VCE.


I leave this school with wonderful memories. Thank you to everyone for making my time at VCE so special.


I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, and relaxing summer!
