Term 2 Week 1: Tuesday 26th April 2022

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to a new term! Some things have changed and some remain the same.

The Easter Season is well underway as we also come out of previous restrictions. There is a sense of some liberation emulated in each that add to the other. Hopefully you were all able to connect again with your faith and social communities over the break. We are of course looking at the implications of the variations in restrictions and will be exploring possibilities. Student Led Conferences will be a highlight of the term as the students proudly share with you their learning journey and achievements.

From Week 9 of this term until the end of Term Three I have been asked to go to Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School at Kellyville while the principal there goes to Chisholm Primary School. The Acting Principal position at MIPS will today be advertised. As always MIPS will continue to be in great hands.

With appreciation for your ongoing support, 

Stephen Dowd
