Message from the Principal

Dear Parents / Carers,

The time is quickly passing as we come to the end of the school year. In our liturgical calendar, this time is one of the most important events. It is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming.


Underneath our ‘Giving Tree’ are many  gifts for children and families who will go without this Christmas. The generosity of Mother Teresa Catholic Primary never ceases to amaze me. If you would like to buy a gift to put under the tree come into the office and take a gift card.


Thank you to all parents who recently completed parent feedback forms. There are many areas that we as a school will continue to focus on to improve including; Communication, Use of Library, Policies and Procedures, Resources and many more. We have opened for two years and have achieved so much in such a short time. Let’s not forget to celebrate these achievements. Families who are keen to bring their students here speak about our great reputation. If you have concerns there are processes that need to be followed. If you have a concern regarding your child,  you speak to the teacher first. If you are not satisfied that it has been addressed you would come and see myself the principal or someone in leadership. If you are not happy with an aspect of school organisation please share your concern in a respectful manner. As principal, I am always happy to listen to parents concerns and to look for a shared solution to issues. My door is always open and I am always willing to meet any parent / carer who has a concern.

SCHOOL FEES A reminder that all school fees need to be paid before the end of the school year which is three weeks away. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss this matter if you need to.


As the year draws to a close please come along and join us for our end of year celebrations
