Our school raffle will be drawn on Monday 18th September.

Lyn Pedretti Retirement Friday 18th August closed of one of the most remarkable chapters of contribution in our school's history. The amazing and humble Lyn Pedretti, one of our truly treasured Education Support Staff, will have her last day of work before retirement on Friday 18th August. Lyn began her association with Bendigo SDS as a parent years ago before becoming an innovative, passionate and highly skilled staff member. Lyn has been leading the way in supporting the learning of our students, all with the utmost care and compassion for thirty five years now. Whilst we will miss her daily presence in the school, we wish Lyn the very best as she joins her husband Brian in retirement and concentrates her energies on her children, grandchildren and her adorable and charming mother.
