Do not be hasty in judging one another.

On behalf of the staff I want to thank all families for making themselves available for the parent teacher phone calls this week. We value this opportunity to connect with parents as demobnstrated by the time teachers spent preparing. Effective communication between school and home is important for student learning and wellbeing, and we are striving to maintain this despite the restrictions on families being onsite and able to meet face to face with staff. Please remember that Dojo messaging, email and the phone continue to be effective ways to get in touch with staff.
This week we welcomed Mrs. Emma Morrison to St. Patrick's staff. Emma is an experienced teacher who will work predominently with the Year 3-6 classes to support targeteded teaching and learning for all students. Welcome Emma!
Stay safe, stay well!
In response to the Coronovirus Pandemic, St. Patrick's continues to implement a range of measures for the health and safety of the community.
- All staff will wear face coverings from Monday. Coverings are able to be removed when teaching students and/or when providing direct instruction to students.
- If a child (or staff member) is sick, stay home.
- If a student is being tested for COVID-19, their siblings should remain home also.
- Altered pick up and drop off arrangements will remain in place until further notice.
- Vistors to the school (including parents and contractors) are being kept to a minimum.
- Increased cleaning of the school will continue.
- Increased hygiene practices will continue.
- Excursions, camps and offsite activites are postponed until further notice.
We remind families that the health and wellbeing of all families is our primary concern and are grateful for the ongoing support of you all during this unprecedented time.
St. Patrick's is committed to ongoing school improvement and the use of a range of evidence to inform decisions and actions. A large sample of families received a school improvement survey earlier this week. This is a genuine opportunity for you to provide feedback about school performance. The surveys are anonymous and can be completed in paper form or online. Families who receive a survey are asked to complete these by Friday 31st July. Paper copies can be returned to the front office sealed in the envelope provided.
It is important to note that staff and students also complete surveys and the information is utilised by both Catholic Education and school leadership to inform school improvement.
