Welcome Back to School for 2023.
Just a reminder that Tuesday 14th February is a Pupil Free Day 
OOSH is available if you are registered on this day. 

Dear Parents/Carers,

A very warm welcome to all of our families. Today we welcomed back students in Years 1-6, and we look forward to welcoming our Kindergarten students back on Monday.

This year we welcome three new members to our teaching staff: Mrs Lauren Murray (Year 1), Mrs Rachael Miller (Year 6) and Ms Lauren Clarke (Year 4). We also welcome a new assistant Priest, Father Jomer Calma and a Deacon, Deacon Michael Perry, to our Parish. We look forward to working with Father Jomer and Deacon Michael. Father Jomer will celebrate our Opening School Mass on Friday 10th February at 9.30am in our Church. At this Mass our 2023 school leaders will be introduced and receive their leader badges.


Welcome back to 2023!

Please make Fr Jomer Calma and Deacon Michael Perry welcome if you see them about. Fr Henry Ibe will return from his trip to Nigeria in mid March. Fr Jomer and Deacon Michael will also conduct some scheduled classroom visits throughout the term.

Next Friday will be our Investiture of School Council and beginning of term mass in the church at 9.30am. All are welcome to attend.

If you would like to go on the roster for 2023 please see attached note and just put your times and dates on this.  We are now open for recess and lunch and this is all available via the Qkr app.
There may be a few grandparents that would like to put their name down also.
A reminder we do require a current WWCC for all volunteers. This is free and available via this link.
