We would like to remind all families under instruction by the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited, for any students who are being tested for COVID-19 and have siblings who attend the school, the siblings should also remain at home until a negative test result is provided for the student awaiting a test result.
We ask families to notify the school if they are planning not to return in 2021. We have a number of children on waiting lists across year levels and are working towards confirming class sizes for 2021. Families are asked to contact reception via email or phone.
We would like to wish Kay Lay all the best in her retirement.
Kay has been a valued member of our staff for 11 years, providing us with a wealth of knowledge and a bag full of fun. Her friendly manner and cheeky smile will be missed. We look forward to hearing of her adventures, time spent with loved ones and living her best life.
Good luck Kay Lay!!
From all the St Thomas Community

We are currently producing a video compilation for NAIDOC Week, and we're looking for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people to get involved! If you or someone you know would be interested in being a part of this video, please pass this on.
To be part of this celebration, submit a video 10 seconds to 1 minute in length answering some or all of the following points:
- Tell us your name and your mob
- Say ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’ and the name of the Country/Land you are from or living on
- Hold up a sign with “Always Was, Always Will Be, (Country e.g. Jingili) Land”.
You can do this in an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander language (including Kriol) or in English - whichever you're comfortable using.
If you’re feeling shy, you can just hold up a sign with “Always Was, Always Will Be, (Country) Land”. Again, the language you choose to write it in is up to you.
We look forward to seeing your submissions! Thank you for celebrating NAIDOC with us.
