Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
As we move into the season of spring it is a good time to reflect on how our year has gone so
far—on where we have come from and where we are now. It was in mid-August last year that
Donald Mitchell and I were told by the Catholic Property Services that we would be moving our
school to the Holy Cross site, and that we would be beginning the new school year in the new
school! The rest as they say is history—while there remains loose ends to tidy up we are on the
new site and in our new school. The effort and energy of a small group of dedicated people has
allowed this to happen.
I think with regards to the opportunity that we have been given, it was best put by the famous
British war time Prime Minister Winston Churchill who said “This is not the end, it is not even the
beginning of the end but rather it is the end of the beginning”. That I think is how we need to
view our new site; a beginning!
The Stars on Stage group perform at the Regent Theatre tonight and I would like to congratulate
the group on all of their effort and to thank Miss Payne for her hard work and determination to put
this high quality performance together.
Have a great week.
