“Curious Creatures and Wild Minds” took over St Joseph’s Primary School, Merewether, recently as we celebrated Book Week. As a curious bunch of staff and students whose minds are nourished by what we read, we consider this particular week to be a highlight of the year.
The families and community of Holy Name Primary, Forster, offered wonderful support to the school’s “5c Friday” and “beeswax wrap” initiatives in Term 3. Parish priest Fr Greg Barker shared the fundraising duties and received much donated spare change as well.
To celebrate World Teachers Day, the Catholic Schools Office shares some personal reflections from those working in our system. These stories highlight the positive impacts of a Catholic education – its influence on the careers of the contributors, and the profound effect for future generations.
