It’s hard to believe it has been 10 months ago since I spoke about continuing the fabulous work of my predecessors and implementing changes to help further the quality of teaching, learning and pedagogy within our school. The year has come and gone in the blink of an eye. Thanks to the dedication, commitment and undeniable hard work of our Teachers, Teacher Aides, Parents and of course, Students, I believe we have delivered. Our whole school testing results have once again supported growth across all subject areas, while our 2018 NAPLAN results again proved to be solid once again across both year levels. We have much to celebrate this year.
I would like to thank all of the dedicated individuals that have made 2018 at OLSH a very special time. It is truly amazing and I’m honoured to be a part of this community, the likes I have yet to come across in my 20 years in education. Together, staff and parents provide educational excellence for every student, so that they can achieve their spiritual, academic, social, creative and physical best.
Parents, I sincerely thank you for your involvement, assistance and presence within our school. You indeed make this the wonderful place it is.
To the P&F committee, thank you for all your efforts with fundraising, and commitment to school improvement. Together with the School Board representatives and the Parish, thank you for your ongoing support and assistance in making our school a better place.
To our amazing, dedicated and passionate Teachers, Teacher Aides and ancillary Staff, I would like to personally thank you for your amazing efforts, assistance, patience and tolerance this year. We are truly blessed to have every one of you grace us with your presence. Words cannot express my gratitude and thanks for the way you always go above and beyond. You all make a difference in the lives of our students every day!
Lastly, I would like to thank the wonderful
students of OLSH, who have given me a new
lease on my career. I’m glad I made that choice
to take a chance for this change. I knew from
that very moment 12 months ago, as I set foot
on the grounds and stood before you, that I
had definitely made the right decision. Fate
had brought me to Springsure. Your passion
and enthusiasm for not only the family, friends
and community, but for OLSH is magnificent.
You are amazing in every way; your behaviour,
attitude, individuality and what you have
achieved throughout the year is immeasurable.
The teachers and I are so proud and
appreciative of how you have made this 2018
school year a tremendous success. As we like
to say here at OLSH, that’s Living Our Lady’s
Many wonderful memories were made in
2018. I am grateful to be blessed with leading a
tremendously supportive and faith filled
community. I am looking forward to all that
2019 will bring, making many more memories
and celebrating all the specials moments to
come. I wish you all every blessing for the Holy
season, may it be spent making memories with
