Our school is a place of faith and learning
Dear Parents and Families,
We congratulate you all for supporting your children through Remote Schooling and wish you a well deserved break. We hope that we will have all students back at school at the start of the new term and wait to hear from the Chief Health Officer and State government as to what arrangements will be in place for the final school term. We will continue to communicate via PAM.
This week, we say farewell to Lori Field who will join the DOSCEL staff as an Education Officer.
We congratulate Lori on her appointment and wish her the very best in her new role. We are truly grateful for her contribution to St Thomas’ over the past eleven years and thank her for her commitment to Catholic Education. Her teaching, mentoring and nurturing of students and staff has been very much appreciated.
Please know that Mr Bartlett will be taking leave throughout the fourth term and his replacement will be announced at the beginning of the new term.
We also look forward to announcing our Year 4G replacement teacher. Kristy Glover will begin her parental leave in Week Three of Term 4 and Year Four families will be informed of Kristy's replacement as soon as paperwork is completed.
Throughout the term, we have welcomed a number of newborns into our school family. May they receive God’s blessing and be filled with God’s spirit as they bring joy to those around them.
Footy Colours Day
Thank you for supporting our Footy Colours Day both at home and at school. It is always an enjoyable day, bringing joy and banter.
We wish our Melbourne and Bulldog supporters a great grand final. It looks to be an exciting final.
Enjoy your holidays and take care.
Anita and Staff

Over the last 2 years we have faced many challenges with Covid 19. We have had to make many changes to how we live and what we can do. It’s been CHALLENGING! The challenges were represented by the crosses that we bear.
After they made their crosses they discussed all the positive things we have achieved over the last 2 years, things we succeeded in doing that we thought were challenging or in the too hard basket. The positives of Covid 19 and some of the things that we have really liked doing.
We planted the crosses in the garden to share with our school community.
