Dear Parents and Friends of St Therese's School,
Today we celebrated 30 years as a school community. What an achievement! Today I felt pride and such love to be part of this school community and am excited to lead our school into the future. I was honored to meet the previous principals and staff who have gone before me, especially Sister Kerry who was the founding principal of St Therese's School.
An event such as the one today does not just happen! I would like to sincerely thank all the staff at St Therese's for their dedication and commitment, especially Meegan Blackney and her team for all the organisation!
Thank you to Father Joseph for celebrating Mass with us. It was a lovely ceremony and blessing of the garden. I am always so overwhelmed when the children sing so beautifully! The Taiko drummers did not disappoint with their performance at the blessing of the garden.
Thank you to the students and teachers from St Peter's College in Cranbourne who created our new garden space. It has exceeded our expectations!
Thanks to Sensei Andrews for her amazing sculpture of an origami crane. I thank Joy also for her wise plant choices. The Japanese peace garden looks stunning and each piece that is there has a story to tell.
A huge thank you to Catherine Hogan and the team of staff who assisted her in bringing the Art Show to life. The students all contributed to the show and we invite all families to enjoy the artwork that is on display throughout the school.
I am looking forward to this evening when families are invited back to school for the picnic at 5:00pm to share food from their home countries.
I truly believe in the words of Saint Therese - 'It is love alone that matters'. I know that with love we can achieve great things here at St Therese's! God Bless you all.
