Announcement of Co-Principals for St Edward's School in 2020
Today's announcement of Lisa McSweeney's 12 month secondment to co-principal of St Edward's Primary School comes with mixed emotion. As principal of St Nicholas School, I am devastated to be losing an educator and leader of her calibre. As a friend, I am delighted she has been rewarded with this opportunity. St Edward's School deserves another quality leader, and they have this in Lisa.
Please find below the announcement which was circulated to the St Edward's community this morning.

Staff Structure 2020
Please see below our Staff Structure for 2020. On Monday our students will enjoy ‘Moving On Up Day’, where they will be allocated their teacher for 2020. Please remember teaching is now a ‘team sport’ and your child’s learning will be led by all teachers on the grade.
Our teachers have completed the final touches on the 2019 Semester 2 reports. These reports will go home with your children today. Please take the time to sit with your child, discuss their achievement, progress and use it as an opportunity to set future goals.
PT&F Christmas party
An enormous thank you for the PT&F for their support and coordination of this years community Christmas party. The simplicity of the evening supported the desire to allow people to stop, mingle and enjoy each other's company. With the hectic nature of this season, this was greatly appreciated and was integral to the night's wonderful success.
Secondly, congratulations and thank you to the St Nicholas School Band. Whether sitting and watching our band or listening to their pieces as part of the background to a social conversation, great joy was brought to the evening. What a wonderful addition you are to our school. Another opportunity for our students to engage in something they love. Another opportunity for our children to shine.
