A MESSAGE FROM OUR ACTING PRINCIPAL
MISS GINAYA WIELAND 
 

Dear Parents

YEAR 6 GRADUATION CELEBRATIONS: It has been such a pleasure and honour to join with Year 6 in celebrating their Graduation events over the past week. The children have matured into such wonderful leaders over the past two years and it has been lovely to witness this journey. A huge thank you and congratulations must go to the Year 6 Teaching Team for the support, guidance and encouragement that has been provided to these children over the past two years.

The graduation dinner was such a lovely success and special thanks must go to the parents that assisted with the planning and preparation of the night. To each of the committees and helpers, we are truly grateful for the time, effort and hard work you put into making the whole graduation dinner such a fantastic event. The children had such a fun night and they loved the dance moves that Fr Peter Wood shared with them on the night. 

LAST DAY FOR STUDENTS: It was great to celebrate the final day of school with the children today. A reminder that tomorrow is a Pupil Free Day for the children with staff attending a staff mass and preparing for 2015. The office will be closed all day. 

SPORTS CAPTAINS FOR 2015: This week the House Captain elections were held. Any students who wanted to stand for election, had a chance to present to their house on Monday. It was a close count in many houses. Results have been tallied and I am pleased to announce the following people as House Captains and Vice Captains.

In December 2015 at the Sunshine Coast Claire will compete in the World Cup in the Senior Mixed Division. She will also have an opportunity to compete in June in Sydney in a preliminary match. 

STAFF THANK YOU: Over the past few months, we have had many of our part-time and casual staff, step into more teaching responsibilities. We would like to say a huge thank you for the fantastic job they have done. Special mention to Jenny Mercer, Pauline Murphy, Michelle Baird, Angelique Alchin and Elleigh Lysaught. Each of these teachers have allowed a smooth transition for all of our children.

FAREWELL AND THANK YOU: Best wishes to the families who are leaving us bound for new places and new schools. Special thanks must go to Bronwyn Moore, who leaves the school after many years of involvement. Bronwyn has coordinated the school Book Club over the last nine years, as well as as being St Agnes’ representative on the Parent Assembly. We say farewell to the following families: Anderson, Arrowsmith, Ashard, Battiston, Borg, Bulmer, Casey, Cave, Chappell, Clarke, Cornale, Couell, Davidson, Davies, Donkin Lennon, Ellison, Evans, Gee, Green, Holstein, Howard, Keys, Krebs, Leahy, Line, Litjens, Lockhart, Marsham, Martin, McGovern, McKinnon,  McLaughlin, Meyers, Moore, Murphy, Myhill, Newman, Nosworthy, Peacock, Pfab, Plunkett, Schuster, Simpson, Stewart, Stubbs, Taylor, Terry, Tiller, Vo, Whalen and Woods. 


HEARTFELT THANKS: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire school community for their support and encouragement all year, especially since August. Our staff at St Agnes' are so dedicated and I cannot thank them enough for everything that they do to support your children and each other. Special thank you to the leadership team for the great work they have done this year. As a staff, we are really excited about 2015 and are looking forward to maintaining the great reputation that our community has. We would like to wish all of our families a very Merry Christmas and a happy, safe and relaxing holiday break. We look forward to welcoming you all back at the end of January!
