    Dear Parents and Friends, As I reflect on our journey over the past the year, I once again feel proud of what we have achieved as a community. Our NAPLAN results received in September indicated that our student’s growth in learning continues to grow with the Year 3 and Year 5 results telling us that in each of the learning areas, St Mary’s students are outperforming the State. We have continued to provide challenging and relevant learning opportunities for students and have provided additional learning tools to engage the students in learning. I’m sure many parents have heard about our new 3D printer which has allowed our students to prepare design briefs and then create models. Our junior students are now enjoying the use of an additional bank of 30 iPads that allow engagement in a variety of curriculum areas through the use of exciting educational apps. I would like to offer my gratitude to all in our community for your ongoing support. To the many parents who have volunteered their time to help out in a variety of ways - I thank you most sincerely. The assistance that you give enables us to do the best we can for our students and this is very much valued by the teachers. The teachers particularly appreciate the work of the classroom helpers as this assistance supports the learning of all students. Your commitment each week has been tremendous. Thank you. Thank you to the school Advisory Board members, led by Marco Hall. Throughout the year, the Board has supported me in my work as Principal and the work of our teachers. Some major areas of focus for the Board have been on Traffic Management and the development of a draft a Code of Conduct for all in our community Thank you and well done to members of the Fete Committee, with special thanks going to Belinda Thomas, the coordinator. Many hours of work went into the organization of the Fete which resulted in a profit of $30,789.89. Congratulations to all concerned. Kind Regards, Helen Anderson
