A MESSAGE FROM OUR  ACTING PRINCIPAL

 Dear Parents and Carers

What an action-packed year 2016 has been! I would like to congratulate all the children on the way in which they have shown a commitment to their learning and actively participated in all the exciting events/activities that were organised throughout the year. It was such an honour to read all of the student reports for Semester Two, and I feel very proud of their individual achievements. It was also lovely to be able to offer so many Principal Gold and Silver Awards for exceptional and outstanding achievement in work habits, attitudes and social achievements. Recipients of the Principal Gold Award have been outlined below. The children thoroughly enjoyed the Swimming Carnival held last Friday. A huge thank you to Ms Claire Michell for coordinating such a fantastic day. It was also great to see the teachers win back the “Teacher-Parent” trophy after their record-breaking relay swims in the Teacher-Parent relay event!!

YEAR 6 GRADUATION CELEBRATIONS: It has been such a pleasure to join with Year 6 in celebrating their Graduation events over the past week. While I have not been at St Agnes’ to witness all of their educational journey, I have had the privilege this year, of watching them grow and develop into wonderful senior students, who have led the school in so many ways. A huge thank you and congratulations must also go to the Year 6 Teaching Team for the support, guidance and encouragement that they have provided to the children over the past two years.

The graduation dinner was such a great 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 wonderful event. The children had such a fun night and they loved all the decorations. They also really enjoyed Fr Peter’s karaoke performance at the end of the evening.

 I would like to make special mention of Mrs Daniella O’Brien (Leader of Catechesis) and Mr Krysten Jones (Leader of Curriculum) for their ongoing commitment and support of the school in their recent leadership roles this term. They have both done an amazing job in their roles and were both at the forefront of some of the new initiatives and structures that were implemented at the school during Term 4.

HEARTFELT THANKS: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire school community for their support, friendship and encouragement throughout the year. I would particularly like to thank Christy Ismay and the Leadership Team for their assistance and guidance through Term 4 while in the Acting Principal role. I would also like to acknowledge all the wonderful staff at St Agnes’ for the dedication and commitment they continually display to support your children and each other.  A thank you to the Leadership Team for the great work they have done this year.

 STAFF FAREWELLS: To all the staff who are leaving next year, I wish you every success and happiness at your new schools and in your new roles. To Mrs Soerensen, you will be sorely missed at St Agnes’. Thank you for your 15 years of dedicated service to our school community. We wish you all the best in the next part of your life’s journey.

 As a staff, we are excited about 2017 and are looking forward to some exciting new initiatives and additions to the school. 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!

 2017 MAI INTERVIEW ON-LINE BOOKINGS: This week a note went home with each child with instructions on how to book your Year 1 - 6 (2017) child into a half hour interview with their new teacher. The interview period will run from Monday 30 January until Thursday 2 February (inclusive). Children are only required to be at school for this thirty-minute interview, and we sincerely thank you for your support.

The school will be offering free child care facilities for those families unable to organise alternative arrangements for this period. A separate booking code for childcare was also included on this note. Bookings for interviews and care must be made by Friday 20 January so that adequate staffing for this period can be organised. It is important for everyone’s care and safety that you book your child into care if you intend to send them to school over this period.
