Woodend School 1995

Sue Woollard was the Principal and there were 3 classes.
Staff members were Chris Lever, 2/3; Vicki Gregory, Reception; Jenny Cullen, R/1; Mignonne Herriman, school secretary; and Lyne George, teacher librarian.
While the school was being built in Term 1 1995, a big yellow school bus transported students between the Woodend Shopping Centre and Sheidow Park School.
It was exciting to see the bare paddock grow into a school and to have the privilege to teach in and help establish a new school.
One great memory is of all five staff very carefully eating fish and chips (purchased from the adjacent Woodend Shopping Centre) in the brand new but empty library. The fish/chicken shop also became our first canteen.
On May 21st 1995 the school was officially opened and consisted of the combined Administration and library building, canteen, an open shelter shed, (which later became our hall), and three double classrooms. (Rooms 1 to 6)
