THERE were a few tears but mostly happy faces when students arrived at a new Landsdale school for the first time today.

More than 240 kindergarten to year 6 students were welcomed at Carnaby Rise Primary School, located in the suburb’s east.

Kindergarten classmates Cailyn Woods, Jenille Cruz and Michael Pettigrew and pre-primary students Jamil Aziz and Yogi Patel were among the children enjoying their first day at the school.

Principal Karen Giacomucci said last week she expected the cohort to increase as enrolment numbers were “growing every single day”.

Mrs Giacomucci was formerly principal at Marangaroo Primary School and leads a team of 17 staff members at Carnaby Rise.
