Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Yesterday was day one of term three for me and what a great day it was! It was so nice to see all of the happy, smiley faces of the children and to catch up with so many of the parents.
I would like to thank Lindsay Stevens for the exceptional job that she did of leading the school in my stead. And also to thank Judy Baines who has done a great job as the Acting DP and Senco.
Schools are busy places that always seem to have a lot going on and it has been great to be able to keep up with all of the activities through the school blog and newsletters.
Next term also promises to be a very busy one with the senior camp, then the school production, the school fair and the usual end of year activities as major productions.
When you have had a time for reflection as I have, you are able to focus on things that are really important. As a parent and teacher the most important value that we can teach our child is
honesty. Honesty in what we say and in what we do. If we model honesty to our children they in term will behave in an honest and honourable way.
Have a great week.
