We have had a wonderful week with many celebrations.
The disco was held last Friday evening and it was a fantastic night. Congratulations and thanks to Jo and Nicola for the organisation, for the parents who helped and also to our students for their wonderful behaviour. The costumes were impressive; a lot of work went into their preparation. I would also like to thank all my staff members who gave up their Friday evening to be part of the fun.
On Wednesday, Father Greg presided over our school Mass for the final time before he retires to a more peaceful life. Mrs Ball and the children prepared a very moving tribute to him and of course, there was cake. We are waiting to hear just who will replace Father Greg and we should know that soon.
The instrumental music/choir afternoon was just so special. We have lots of talent at St Teresa’s and our wonderful Fran is working magic with the children. The presence of so many family members added to the joy of the concert. Thank you for your interest and support.
School reports have been posted and will be added to the parent portal. I would like to thank Mrs Ball for the great work she has done in setting up the portal. It is a work in progress and we hope to upload lots of additional information, eg readings, for you in the future.
Our FUN sports day will be held tomorrow and we are looking forward to a great day as our three teams vie for the winner’s trophy. The programme appears below and has also been added to the parent portal. Mrs Smith, as usual has done incredible work in the preparation and I am very grateful to her for this.
School starts again on Monday, July 10, with Tuesday July 11 being the show holiday. Dates for Term 3 have been added to the calendar on the parent portal and we will continue to update this.
Meanwhile; Evelyn Sports Days are July 20 and 21 and Grandparents Day is Friday July 28. More details next term.
