I hope your holidays were a relaxing break from school routine and an opportunity to recharge as we head into Term 3. Yesterday, all staff attended a professional development day on Privacy and Record Keeping in Temora. All Catholic Education staff in the Western Region were led through the current professional expectations in line with policy, guidelines and legislation. It was very informative as well as affirming.

As we enjoy the colder months of the year the ski slopes offer a fun family day right ‘on our doorstep’. I know many students have already told me of their snow trip over the holidays enjoying tobogganing and snow fights. I can’t wait to get there myself.
