Tomorrow, the 14th June 2017 is World School Support Staff Day. Along with our Bishop, I join with you in celebrating the significant contributions of school support staff, each and every day in our school communities.
Please take time to thank them personally for their commitment and dedication in making our diocesan Catholic schools great, for every student, so that they can learn, grow and achieve in a safe and supportive environment. Their work is integral to the creation of vibrant school communities, whether it is in the school office providing administrative assistance, in the classroom supporting the work of teachers, keeping our schools clean and safe, or in so many other ways that add so much to the life of the school. Without their work our schools simply couldn't operate.
Our support staff are outstanding professionals who provide invaluable expertise and services that are absolutely essential in ensuring our students and families benefit from a Catholic education.
The work of support staff does not go unnoticed and is deeply appreciated. Tomorrow is an opportunity to recognise, acknowledge and say thank you to all school support staff.
