Welcome to the new school year. I hope you have all enjoyed the holiday break, spending valuable time with family and friends.

I especially welcome all of the new families to Lockleys Primary School and look forward to meeting you as you participate in the many school activities that occur throughout the year.

I am very pleased and proud to be appointed as Principal of Lockleys Primary School. Its positive reputation and its many successes are well respected and acknowledged in the wider community.

School tours, with me, are held twice per term on Wednesday of Week 4 and Week 8 or by appointment and can be booked in at the front office. It is a delight to show off our school and the numerous opportunities we have created to enhance student learning, staff effectiveness and community involvement.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Kindest Regards,

Chan Welfare
