Hello to all. Hopefully the first few weeks of the new term are moving along nicely for everyone.

First of all, we’d like to welcome our newly selected Parent Representative on the Board, Tania Wilson.  Tania has two children here at St Mary’s: Isabella and Benjamin, and will start her work with us this week. We’re really looking forward to working with her, and gaining from the wonderful skills and experience she’ll bring to our team.   

Our staff and students are also working very hard right now on preparing for another amazing school Production, and I’m sure you’ll all come along and support them on the performance nights.  We give our thanks to the team at Gobsmacked also for their tireless efforts coaching our children to brilliance.

Thank you to all those who contributed to the Policy Reviews for Term 1.  Your responses are being reviewed and any agreed amendments will be updated by next term.   Term 2 Policy reviews will be for the ‘Reporting to Parents’ Policy: very timely with our new reporting structure rolling out this term now we are no longer using National Standards.  The links to this will come out in the next couple of weeks.

So, for now we wish you the best of luck for Cross Country, and hope you enjoy the rest of the term.

Claire Stott
Board Chair
