Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
The days are getting shorter and the mornings certainly seem to be darker and colder so winter must be here.
It was pleasing to see such a good number of people at the celebration of Pentecost Mass on Sunday. Thank you to all of the people who helped organize the Mass and especially to the pupils from our school who read - you were a credit to us.
I would also like to welcome the new members on to our school Board of Trustees and also acknowledge the hard work over a number of years, put in by those standing down.
Governance of a school is a challenging but
ultimately rewarding task. No matter the size of the school the legislative requirements are the same. An integrated school involves other laws and acts of parliament that have to be adhered to. Much of what the Board of Trustees do is unseen by their community and the hard work put in is not really recognized.
So to Sheryl, Jacqui, John and Ross - thank you, it was a privilege working with you.
Have a great week.
Regards, Mike Brosnahan
