From the Principal

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the 2021 school year.  It has been a wonderful year of many firsts for me as the Principal at St John’s.  I’ve enjoyed the many events and celebrations unique to our school this year.  This week we will celebrate our year 6 students end to primary school with their end of year dinner and school Christmas disco.   Next Wednesday 8th December we will celebrate the end of our school year with a whole school thanksgiving mass during the day.  Unfortunately, with COVID-19 we have been unable to have our whole community attend our Graduation Mass as St Luke’s is unable to accommodate our whole community due to restrictions on numbers.  This year the Graduation Mass will be for our graduates and their families only.
