Welcome back! I trust that everyone had a lovely break and enjoyed spending time with family over the Easter break.
Staff travelled to Cootamundra on Monday with one hundred other teachers from the Archdiocese for a Challenging Learning Inspiration Day. Martin Renton who is an English keynote speaker who presents all over the world led the day. Mrs Murray and I are currently in Canberra and have spent the last two days participating in workshops again lead by Martin. St Joseph’s staff are privileged to have Professional Development that is of an International standard, and we look forward to continuing this learning over the next two years with Challenging Learning.
Term Two will be another busy term for St Joseph’s. Next week is Catholic Schools Week and we will celebrate mass with Fr Kevin on Tuesday at 10.15 am. Mass will be followed by a special Mother’s Day morning tea. All are most welcome to attend and to share a yummy cake that we will have for all visitors and the students.
Have a great week.
