We have a big week ahead as many local families prepare for the return of school and for some their first days in Prep and Kindergarten.
This is a wonderful time for many – filled with excitement and perhaps some nerves, from both the kids and parents, for what is to come. Council is very proud to be part of this momentous time as we welcome new children to our kindergartens and farewell the previous year’s students ready for their next learning chapters.
Council’s School Crossing Supervisors will be out from next week, so please remember to stick to 40 km/h in school zones to keep everyone safe!
The Annual Community Satisfaction Survey calls will begin soon – running from 30 January to March. If you do receive a call, please consider giving your feedback.
These surveys are anonymous and provide Council with valuable information on where we can improve our facilities and services. The feedback also tells us areas which our community are content with, providing a good indicator of where to focus our efforts.
Council is always seeking to improve the way we serve the community and this survey plays an important role in tracking community perspectives in relation to our services.
We thank you in advance for your assistance.
