Welcome to the St Kieran Catholic Primary School Website
The appointment process for the new Assistant Principal has been completed. The successful candidate is Mrs Andrea Woodgate who is currently the Assistant Principal at Orana Catholic Primary School. Mrs Woodgate has served as an Assistant Principal at 3 different schools since 2001 and has also served as a Principal for 2 years in the country. The quality of the applicants was very high and I thank the three other members of the appointment panel, Fr Gatt, Mrs Mary Bizzaca, Principal of St John’s Scarborough and Mr Hugh Zimmerman as the School Board representative for their diligence, insightfulness and assistance in the appointment of Mrs Woodgate. I look forward to welcoming her into our school community at the commencement of 2015.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the efforts of both Miss Kathy Dean and Ms Kathleen Tranquille who have acted in the Assistant Principal position since 2012. The role that they will complete at the end of this year, is often a very thankless task and their willingness to get the job done is a credit to both of them. Further acknowledgement of their efforts will be made at the end of the school year.
Wow, what a great athletics carnival! It has been a great day fantastically supported by our parents and greatly enjoyed by the children. It is a real credit to our staff and especially Mr Hort for his wonderful organisation of today’s event. This has been a culmination of many, many hours of preparation and a few sleepless nights praying for fine weather too! A big thank you to the SEDA kids who helped us today. We are very fortunate to have their assistance and look forward to a continued relationship with the group into 2015. A special thank you to the P&F Association who helped look after our needs so well today at the carnival.
God bless and have a great weekend.
