May is a very special month named in honour of Mary, mother of Jesus. So
appropriately, we celebrate Mother’s Day this month….and Grandmothers, Great
May is a time for us to recognize the gift of motherhood and the gift of life.
There is no greater human love than the love of a mother. Make the entire
month, not only May 12th, a time of celebration for our moms. We give thanks
for the special influence they have in our lives and the care, love, and
patience they provide for us.
As we move into our final months of the school year, we look forward to the
excitement which comes with year-end. Can you believe that there are less than
nine weeks of school left until summer holidays?
Students will be focused on preparing for year-end tests, giving them the
opportunity to demonstrate all that they have learned during the school year.
We also start to enjoy the warmth of the season and are already anticipating
special classroom fieldtrips and much more. These are all signs of energy and
new life. Please keep your calendars as a ready reference for all the
Our Artist in Residence program, Trickster, starts May 6 and finishes with a
student performance on Friday, May 10. Please be sure to read the details in
this newsletter. Through creativity, collaboration, innovation, decision
making, and communication our students from Kindergarten through to Grade 6
will work with a curricular theme to develop a production which will also weave
in the theme of leadership. We are very excited to have our students show off
their talents in the Arts.
