Dear Parents

What a beautiful way to finish the school year with a lovely Mass celebration, farewell to staff and carols night. All events were well attended and it was a fitting tribute to the amazing staff that we have at St Agnes’.

WELCOME FR PETER WOOD: Our End of Year Mass was the first opportunity that our St Agnes’ community had to meet our new School Chaplain, Fr Peter Wood. Fr Peter had a wonderful time getting to know the children on class visits and was asked by the children to join us for the Carols night, which he did. It was a great way to interact on a social basis with our student and parent community. We welcome Fr Peter to our school and look
forward to working in partnership with him.

SPORTS CAPTAINS 2015: The elections were conducted this week and we look forward to an announcement at the Monday morning assembly under the shelter. Parents are most welcome to attend when this exciting news is shared with the school community.
