Dear Parents
27 June
This week is my last week at St. Albans Catholic School and it has been a pleasure to be here. I would like to
thank Catherine and the Board for their support. The school has a very committed Board of Trustees who
have the very best interests of the school at heart and play such an important role in the governance of the
school.
I would like to thank Wendy and the PTA for their hard work, kindness and generosity of time.
Thank you Jenni for your friendship and guidance.
In my time here I have had the opportunity to observe the teachers in their classrooms and their classroom
programmes. I have been very impressed with the high standards staff set for themselves and for the pupils
they teach. Each child is valued and respected. I would like to say a very special thank you to all staff
members. This school is a little gem!
Reminder Mufti Mania Day:
This Friday 29 June (last day of term) we will be having a coin trail in exchange for the privilege of wearing
mufti to raise money for this worthy project. Please save your small change for the coin trail.
Mufti Mania 2012 fundraising will go towards helping education in the Solomon Islands.
If you would like more information please go to the school website and click on Religious Education.

ATTENDANCE DUES:
It would be appreciated if Attendance Dues could be paid by the end of Term. Thanks.
PLEASE NOTE:
As the driveway from Rutland street to the presbytery carpark is in a very bad state of repair it would be
appreciated if parents DO NOT use this driveway or carpark when bringing children to school or picking
children up from school.
