 Dear Parents

This week has involved a few lovely events as a school community. The Have a Say Day competition for Years 3-6 was a wonderful example of the advanced skills in public speaking our students display. It was an amazing
opportunity to listen to the range of topics that the children presented. The judging was an extremely hard task to complete. I was so proud of all of the children and the effort that they put in to their speeches. A huge thank you to Mrs Christy Ismay for her ongoing commitment to the enrichment program within our school. Results for the day were:Years 5 & 6 – 1st Ella Handley, 2nd Jessica Ismay and 3rd Laura Stewart Years 3 & 4 - 1st Domi Toohey, 2nd Lily Stace & 3rd Lily Curtis

Today, the whole school community celebrated the Feast of St Agnes with a Mass in the school hall lead by Fr Amila.

LEADERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT: During the process of the management review and the duration of my role as Acting Principal, Mr Matthew Bushe has been appointed as the Acting Assistant Principal. I congratulate Matt on
this appointment and look forward to working more closely with him in my role.

STAFFING: I would also like to announce the following appointments:

- Mrs Patricia (Trish) Todd will be replacing Mrs Maree Bruce, teaching KS for the remainder of the 2014 school year.
- Mrs Jennifer (Jenny) Mercer has been appointed as CAPA and PDH teacher for the remainder of the 2014 school year. Jenny is a member of our current casual staff and is very familiar with the children and our school community.

- Mrs Michelle Baird has been appointed as 6B Teacher until further notice. Mr Bushe will remain connected to the 6B class.
- Mrs Pauline Murphy has been appointed as 5T Teacher each Friday, for Mr Toole’s executive release until further notice. Pauline is also a member of our current casual staff and is very familiar with the children and our school
community. I would like to thank these teachers for accepting the positions and look forward to their ongoing commitment to the school community. We look forward to a smooth transition for all classes.

Another big thank you to the children and families involved in the First Eucharist celebration. I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to attend, due to a family commitment in Tamworth for the weekend. From all accounts it was a beautiful day.

FATHER’S DAY: Information has been sent home today regarding our school celebration for Father’s Day in two weeks time.

SCHOOL PHOTOS: School photos arrived today and have been sent home with the children.

SPECIAL STAFF ANNOUNCEMENT: We would like to announce that Mr Bushe and his wife Vanessa are expecting their second child in January. We look forward to welcoming another Bushe addition to the Aggies family.
