Welcome back to 2019. I hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable break to prepare them for the school year ahead. I would especially like to welcome all of our new students and their families who begin their journey at St Brendan’s this year.

I would like to welcome Fr James  who joins our school community this year as our school priest. Fr James comes to us from Nigeria after spending time in Rockhampton. Fr James is a very friendly priest who I am sure will fit in very well at St Brendan’s. Our Opening School Mass at 9am on Friday will be Fr James’ first celebration with us.

The beginning of the year is a time when we focus on ourselves and look for ways to improve ourselves and our lives. It can also be a time to assist our children to have a wonderful school year and develop skills to assist them in own life. Michael Grose identified five points in his Parenting Ideas Blog entitled Top Five Parenting Tips For This Year.

  1. Switch on your kids’ strengths
  2. Balance kids’ extra-curricular activities
  3. Focus on friendships
  4. Give kids tools to manage anxious moments
  5. Develop rights of passage

To keep our children and their rights protected it is important that at the beginning of the school year is an ideal time to ensure everyone in our community has a clear understanding of expectations and processes. In our latest newsletter I have listed some important areas we need to focus on to ensure we create an environment where everyone feels safe, welcome and valued.

BISHOP'S IN-SERVICE DAY - Friday 15th February
This is a pupil free day. Teachers and staff will spend the day in workshops that focus on faith formation and religious education. This day is generously provided by our Bishop every year. The theme this year is 'Caring for Our Common Home' which is an important mission advocted by Pope Francis.
