FROM THE PRINCIPAL
As we come to the end of a very busy term I would like to thank all of our parent community for the help and support shown towards our school during this term. Our staff have worked very hard to provide the best possible learning and teaching for our students. Our agile learning spaces have provided a collaborative and flexible environment for 21st century education to take place.
We have been heartened by the responses of visiting pre-schools. They have been ‘blown away’ by our spaces and by the engagement of our students in their learning. We often take for granted what we see every day and it is not until someone from outside comes into our school that we are reminded what an inspiring school we have.
The MacKillop Athletics Carnival was held in Sydney Monday, 19th September. We would like to thank all the students for their efforts and congratulations for participating so well.
Further results and details will be in the first newsletter next term.
We would also like to thank the parents who transported and gave their child the opportunity to participate.
Thank you to Daniela Armanini for her assistance on the day and to Maryanne Dodd for all her preparation, dedication and time she put in with the relay training and her work on the day of the carnival.
