Classes Teachers for 2021
Today the children had the opportunity to meet with their teachers for next year as part of our transition programme. Our teaching arrangements remain much the same for 2021 with a few changes.
Congratulations to Mrs Lisa Harris from 1H who is expecting her first baby in the new year and taking leave. Miss Nicole O'Halloran is taking a year's leave to travel and pursue personal interests. We wish both Lisa and Nicole well for 2021.
We warmly welcome Mr Tim Noonan to our St Pat's teaching team. Tim is currently a Year 3 & 4 teacher and is looking forward to being part of our St Pat's community. Tim has also taught Year 5 & 6 students and is an experienced junior cricket and football coach.
