I would publicly like to congratulate our very own Mr Tim Tuck who was a worthy recipient of the Maitland Citizen of the Year Award for 2019.
Mr Tuck embodies everything our school stands for. He lives our school values of Respect, Relationships and Resilience and all students at our school have a story of where Mr Tuck has had a positive influence on them in their education.

Mr Tuck has been involved with our school community for generations of students and even as they return as parents they talk about how great Mr Tuck is. Whether it be our school newsletter he is creating, playing music in our concert band, writing/directing our productions or in the classroom doing what he does best, he does it all with great passion and with one goal in mind- to provide the best experience for all students at Central Yorke.

Tim, on behalf of our school community I would like to say thank you for all that you do for us. Enjoy 2019 as Maitland Citizen of the Year, I cannot think of anyone else who deserves it more.
I must also congratulate Clive Kelly for his Australia Day Award. Clive was a long-serving MAS School Chairman and instrumental in securing funding and construction of our school recreation centre and later the town airstrip. Well done!

Grant Keleher | Principal
