Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Welcome back to the 2012 school year. I hope that everybody was able to take a break during the summer and a happy and restful holiday period was had by all.
2012 brings some changes to our schools staffing; and I would like to welcome Mrs Lisa Matheson into Room Four where she will be the full time class teacher and also to welcome Mrs Anne Kenneally back into her role as Deputy Principal and class teacher in Room Six.
Term One is going to be another very busy and engaging time for our pupils, we have listed a number of key dates for you to keep an eye on further in the news letter.

Have a great year,
