Starts next Thursday evening (15th October) in Nga Maara Hall.
Friday 21st August from 5:15pm
Many thanks to the PFA for arranging such a great evening last week. The children enjoyed their pyjama party and the adults benefited from Sam Weeper’s presentation on Restorative Practice. We hope to be able to share the slides from Sam’s talk in the future.
At the PFA AGM on the same night, the PFA Annual Report was presented and accepted. Many thanks to all on the PFA, particualrly co-chairs Martina Kelly and Kate Wilson, for their hard work and support of the school. We wouldn’t be the school we are without them.
You will be aware that our school has been involved in a Special Character Review this week. Visiting reviewer Mr Paul Ferris has now completed the review following meetings with myself, the Board of Trustees and our DRS Mr Tili. Paul joined us for shared school prayer and spent time in classrooms observing RE lessons and speaking with children. I am delighted to inform you that the review has been extremely positive and Paul has conveyed this to myself and to the Board of Trustees. We now look forward to receiving and sharing with you the completed report early next term
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all colleagues, support staff, board members, PFA, helpers and our wonderful children for another great term at Sacred Heart. Receiving such a positive review report is a great way to end the term and we wish for you all a safe and relaxing term break.
