Parent Letter and Assembly

Last week a Junior School Assembly was held to address some recent inappropriate behaviour from a small number of students. As parents you would have received a letter from our Principal, Steven O’Connor, regarding this. The expectations are very clear moving forward, as they always have been. We must ensure that everyone is safe at the College and that their learning is uninterrupted. If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me on 53 311 688 or gwebb@stpats.vic.edu.au



Welcome back Mrs Jacinta Burge (Year 7 Co-ordinator), who returns after long service leave for the first three weeks of Term 4. Thank you to Mr Peter Brady for taking Jacinta’s classes and Mrs Margie Dodd for taking on all the Year 7 Co-ordinator’s duties.
