Community News 

As we approach the end of Term 1, 2024, I am filled with gratitude for the wonderful moments and achievements we have shared as a school community. This term has been bustling with activity and brimming with joy as we've witnessed our students grow and thrive in various aspects of their lives.

One of the highlights of this term has been the vibrant sense of community fostered during the Parish St. Patrick's Day School & Parish Fete. It was heartwarming to see our students, families, and parish come together to celebrate and support one another. Such events truly embody the spirit of unity and fellowship that defines St. Teresa's.

We've also had the pleasure of welcoming new enrolments into our school family, enriching our community with their unique perspectives and talents. Alongside our new students, we've welcomed two new school officers and another class teacher, who have seamlessly integrated into our school environment, contributing to the nurturing and growth of our students.

At St. Teresa's, we are committed to providing a holistic education that encompasses not only academic excellence but also the development of essential life skills. This term, we've placed a renewed emphasis on teaching our students the value of Christian Meditation as a lifelong mental well-being strategy. We believe that cultivating mindfulness and spiritual awareness will empower our students to navigate life's challenges with resilience and grace.

Our spiritual journey continued with our first mass of the year, where Fr. Mathew enlightened us with the teachings of Jesus, guiding us towards a fruitful and beautiful life together. We also welcomed our new leaders in Year Six, entrusting them with the responsibility of mentoring their peers and fostering a culture of leadership and service within our school community.

In addition to our academic and spiritual endeavours, our students have had the opportunity to participate in NRL coaching sessions every Monday, where they've not only honed their athletic skills but also learned valuable lessons in teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship.

As part of our ongoing commitment to student well-being and success, our staff and community have embarked on a three-year journey with the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS). This proactive framework integrates data and instruction to maximise student achievement and support their social, emotional, and behavioural needs, ensuring every child receives the support they need to thrive.

I am also delighted to share the achievements of Max, who has excelled across several rugby league codes. Max proudly represents our school at Tablelands and soon-to-be Peninsula levels. Max's dedication and sportsmanship are a testament to the values we uphold at St. Teresa's.

As we prepare to conclude the term with our cross-country event next Tuesday, I am filled with anticipation for the exciting adventures that lie ahead. However, I must also inform you that I will be taking an extended leave, and I am pleased to introduce Mrs. Katrina Miller as the Acting Principal during my absence. Mrs. Miller brings a wealth of experience and dedication to her new role, and I have complete confidence in her ability to lead our school forward.

In closing, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your unwavering support and collaboration. Together, we have created a nurturing and inspiring environment where every child can flourish and succeed. I wish you all a restful and rejuvenating break and look forward to our continued journey together in Term 2.
