As we come to the end of this academic year, it is with great pride that I can look back at the many achievements of the children. They have worked so hard with every changing demand made on us by a new and challenging curriculum. The many values that have been on display throughout the year have particularly come to the fore as we end the term – resilience when tackling a particularly tricky problem whether it is in class or a problem between friends; courage in coping with changes; love and honesty towards all members of the school community; appreciation and happiness for each other and all the opportunities they are given within the school – which all strengthen their character and their ability to make the most of every aspect of school life.
It is hard to fathom that this is the last month of school! The end of a school year is a time of reflection — for parents, teachers, and administrators. What were the mountaintops? Where were the valleys? What did we learn over the course of the year? This has certainly been a year of growth for St. Amelia School.
Just a of few of the amazing things we have done and accomplished: Alice in Wonderland Spring Concert, New Computer/Library Renovations, Art Show, New LED Lighting, Diocesan 2nd place Track Team, New sidewalks, Outdoor Classroom, Diocesan Baseball Champions, Mrs. Milette, Teacher of the Year, Raised over$10,000 for various charities
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their hard work this year. It has been a year of changes and they have embraced this with goodwill and continued to provide the best education for the children.
I would also like to thank all parents for their support this year. A great deal of what we do in school cannot be achieved without you and your co-operation and backing. Many thanks and we look forward to working more closely with you next year.
On behalf of the students, families, faculty and staff, we want to thank Father Sibby and Fr. Peter – they are our dynamic duo. They strengthened our Catholic identity by celebrating Mass with us, washing the feet of 12 students during our Holy Week prayer service, participating in our fundraising, attending our plays, leading our May Crowning, speaking at our 8th grade Class day, even teaching a STREAM class… the list goes on and on. Their witness in our partnership in Catholic education and spiritual guidance is to be commended.
Finally, I would like to wish all children who are leaving us at the end of this academic year all the very best on their journey. I know that they have all had a great start here at St. Amelia School and know that they will go on to achieve great things in the future.
Have a wonderful summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you all again in September! Sincerely yours in Christ,
