Term 3, Week 2 School Newsletter.
News from the Principal
Welcome back everyone from what has been a very wet and cold winter break. The rain has certainly helped top up dams and added a lot of colour back to the landscape. It was good to see all the children returning safely from the holidays and looking refreshed and ready for another busy term.
I would like to once again, acknowledge and thank Libby McKew on working tirelessly and making our school concert such a huge success. Libby was the producer and co-ordinated absolutely everything to do with our wonderful school concert. I thank the families and the Parents and Friends for all their hard work on the night and the weeks prior. Thank you to Stephanie Ruthen for her delicious catering at the event. Finally, a huge thank you to our school children and their performance on the night! It was amazing and I was incredibly proud of of them all. We certainly have some very, very talented actors in our midst.
Please continue to monitor your children's and families health, as there is a lot of illness around presently. We have RAT tests available if you need them and we also have children's disposable masks.
The highlights of this week was seeing families at both our Parent/Teacher conferences and also at our community gathering to share their thoughts and ideas on the future direction of our school, with our school architect.
We appreciate your support within our school and our ongoing partnership in every child's learning.
I hope that everyone enjoys a healthy and successful term and that parents, staff and children continue to work together to ensure we have the best learning environment possible for the children of St Patrick’s School.
Have a great week everyone.
Paul McDowell, Principal.
