As we come to the end of a busy, and for some schools, exceptionally challenging Term, I take this opportunity to thank each of you for your work, and to wish you a safe and enjoyable break.
This week has witnessed the graduation of our Year 12 students across the Diocese.
It is so obvious from attending a number of Graduation liturgies and ceremonies this week, that these young people leave school so well prepared for the next phase of their lives. The sense of gratitude expressed by the Year 12 students for the hard work and dedication of their Principals and teachers is quite inspiring. Clearly, school has been a very special place for them, and their excitement for what lies ahead is so obviously tempered by the sadness of leaving.
Our Primary schools have played a significant role in part of this thirteen year journey for so many of these students, and so our Primary colleagues too, should feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.
We wish our Year 12 students the very best as they prepare for the exams that lay before them.
This week we also farewell Suz Marden who retires this Friday. We will have a time to properly farewell Suz after she and her husband Chris return from a well deserved overseas holiday. Needless to say Suz will be greatly missed by us all but she leaves behind a wonderful legacy in a Spiritual Formation framework that has and continues to have, an incredible impact across our Schools and well beyond. We are all so very grateful to Suz, and wish her every blessing.
Again, my very best wishes
Director of Schools
