Week 7, Term 4

We expected the best, and we got it!

So...... the Art Show went down well. So many positive comments from our parents and such pride from our students. I was speaking to a couple of Dad's who said that they thought that it would be a '5 min walk through' and couldn't believe that one and a half hours later they were still there enjoying themselves. They went on to say that it was a smart move to have champers because if it was beer or red wine they would have been there for another hour and a half.


Congratulations to everyone. It was an outstanding effort that will be remembered by parents, students and the community for many years to come. Particular thanks to Karen, Mary, Mary and Marie who worked like trojans in the set up and pack up, to Jacinta who worked so well with the parents, to Jane who directed the 'poppers' and to Denise for having a vision and seeing it through to the end. What would we have done differently - nothing, it was just perfect!


The bar has been set. St Augustine's believes in the best....no less!
