Goodbye from Mrs Morris

As you were made aware last Wednesday by Mr Nielsen’s email I have been successful in being appointed as the new Deputy Principal at a new school at Spring Mountain. I will start in my new position next term. My last day at Runcorn Heights State School will be September 21. While I am very excited by the challenge and opportunity, I am also extremely sad to be leaving Runcorn Heights State School. I remember my very first day at Runcorn Heights back in July 2008 as if it was yesterday. I am very proud of what we have achieved as a community over the last ten years. Runcorn Heights is a great school, with an amazing staff, wonderful children and a supportive community. I have been very privileged to have worked with many remarkable and supportive Principals during my time at Runcorn Heights and I thank them for their leadership and guidance. I also would never have been able to do my job without the support of our business manager Judith Anderson and her amazing team of office ladies. I would also like to thank all the staff that have supported me over the last ten years; teachers, teacher aides, auxiliary staff, support staff, middle leadership team and the wonderful Mrs Healy who joined me as the second deputy principal in 2016. Education is a team effort and it is only through working together that we can maximise the achievement and outcomes for our students. Thanks to the current and past P&Cs for supporting me in my role. Finally, thanks to all the parents for choosing to send your beautiful children to Runcorn Heights and allowing me to play a small part in their development to become lifelong learners.  
I will always feel very connected to Runcorn Heights State School. I will hold very fond memories of my time here as Deputy Principal and as a Mum, having both my children Matthew and Stephanie attend Runcorn Heights State School. I wish you all a wonderful year ahead and an amazing 2019. Thanks again everyone for the last ten years it has been my pleasure.
Mrs Morris
