Welcome to the St Kieran Catholic Primary School Website
Our connection to the Sisters of Mercy goes all the way back to 1920 when the first version of St Kieran school commenced in Tuart Hill
Since that time the Sisters have had a long and successful connection with our School Community with many Sisters serving in a variety of roles within our School up to our present day where we have been fortunate to have the services of Sr. Elizabeth as our School Chaplain.
The charism of the Order has shaped our Community over these years and yesterday the Sisters celebrated Mercy Day. Due to our commitments with Swimming and the short week, we will celebrate our Mercy Week on the first Friday back in Term 4 with a Mercy Mission Day where children will be involved in many fun activities that will also reinforce our ongoing and close connection to our founders.
This week sees two of our staff commence their long service leave for Term Four. Mrs McNally and Mrs Day will take a well deserved rest from work and will be replaced in Pre Primary by Miss Emma Duca who has previously worked in our school and has recently completed her teacher training and Mrs Amanda Xavier who will take on the role in Year Two. With Mrs Schelfhout also returning next term we will see Mrs Pass split her afternoons between Year Three and Year Six relieving Miss Dean and Ms Tranquille during their Assistant Principal time.Mrs Schelfhout and Mrs Amanda Saraceni will be taking the reigns of the
C Centre when Mrs Robertson commences her Maternity leave in Term Four. Mrs Saraceni has been a relief teacher at our school whilst on leave from another Catholic School and is well credentialed for the position. The ongoing appointment for the C Centre has also been completed. Miss Carolyn Papotto is the new teacher and will commence in the new year. I will provide some further background on Carolyn at the beginning of next year.
I will be sending out a list of items that are required for the development of our early childhood playground. Many of the items that are required are 2nd hand goods and we would love it if these items could be donated towards this development so that our limited budget can be spent on items that cannot be recycled. The list will be provided via an online form and you can put your name against a particular item and we will contact you when school recommences. We are also aiming to have a busy bee around the 2nd/3rd weekend of Term Four to get some of these areas underway so please look for this date via an email when we return to school.
Stay safe over the holiday break.
