Each year, the movement of teachers and leaders between schools is a natural career progression. Some years we do not have many people to say goodbye to but at the end of this year we have quite a few. I know all our students, parents, staff and parish community will join in thanking and farewelling the following staff over the next few weeks.
We sadly farewell the following staff. We also congratulate and wish them all the very best for the next step of their journey, they will be missed greatly at St Anthony's but their new school communities are very lucky to have these wonderful people leading and teaching them:
Tania Geracitano has been permanently appointed Assistant Principal at St Thomas Aquinas Primary, Springwood
Penny Martin has been permanently appointed as a Classroom Teacher at ASPECT Macarthur School, Cobbitty
Jenny Khazen has been appointed as a Classroom Teacher at St Andrew's Primary, Marayong
Excitedly, we also have a few mothers-to-be in 2021!! A huge congratulations to Amanda Smith, Catherine McGuirk and Kathleen Mitchell who are all expecting a baby between March to May next year. Miss McGuirk and Mrs Mitchell are finishing at the end of 2020 and Mrs Smith will still be with us for term 1, 2021.
In 2021, we will welcome some new teachers to St Anthony's, these include classroom teachers Mrs Jessica Camilleri, Miss Nikita Hubbard and Miss Vanessa Robinson who are all very much looking forward to joining our school community. We are currently still recruiting for a Coordinator and will advise once this process is finalised.A full list of the 2021 Staffing and Classroom Teacher allocation for next year will be communicated in the next newsletter in week 9. Students will have the opportunity to meet their new teachers on the morning of Monday 14 December.
