Principal's Page - Judy Egan

    Dear Parents/carers,

    I am thrilled to announce an exciting event next term!

    Do you want to know the latest information about approaches to teaching reading and practical strategies you can use at home? We are privileged to be hosting Dr Lorraine Hammond, researcher and lecturer from Edith Cowan University in Perth, WA. Lorraine has been working with teachers across Australia about the best ways to teach reading. Data from WA shows that her methods are incredibly successful!  What an amazing opportunity this is for our families at St Michael’s. You will need to get in quick, by booking on our google sheet. Spaces are limited so bookings are essential.

This term I have had the privilege of witnessing our amazing school staff and families supporting each other and giving others the courage and support to face things they find difficult.

    Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm and dedication, may you be truly abundantly blessed with the new life of Jesus this Easter season.
