Dear Parents and Friends of OLV School
It is with a sense of sadness that I tender my resignation as Principal of Our Lady of Victories School.
I have loved working at our wonderful school and say farewell to the children; I have enjoyed and delighted in them. Keep working hard to be the best you can be and living your faith in a way that comes through in your daily lives and actions.
Thank you so much to those staff who have supported me and worked tirelessly and enthusiastically alongside me to make OLV a place of excellence. I will always feel great pride in what we achieved and will miss the collegiality we shared. I will really miss you.
I am very grateful to all of the parents who have believed in me and in my leadership of the school. Many thanks to Fr Michael for his on-going support in our time together.
I wish you all well in the future and will follow your progress with great interest. May God bless you all.
We want to thank Ms Perry for all her hard work at OLV, and we wish her well in her future endeavours. We are planning a farewell assembly for Ms Perry and will thank her properly at that time.
Term 4 Message 2013
t is great to be back at school; I am looking forward to the rest of the term and seeing how our students have progressed in their learning.
Thanks to all those who have worked so hard over the last few weeks to keep things moving forward at the school in particular Helen Singleton, Maria Boddington, the teachers and support staff. We will all be working hard together as we come towards the end of year graduation and prize-giving.
Now is the time to water the seeds we have planted over the course of the year in the students' lives, in order to see them come to fruition. It is important as we approach Advent, (the season of waiting) that we open our hearts to Jesus and His presence in our lives and our school in this moment. This is the message of hope which our faith brings.
My plans over the next few weeks are to begin to conclude teacher appraisals and make sure sample books are ready to go home at the beginning of week nine and that all information is collated against National standards, ready to be sent to the Ministry of Education.
Thank you so much to all of those parents and the many staff who have stood with me in this challenging time. Your expressions of support have meant so much to me. As Mr Strong has told you, the Employment Relations Authority has ordered that I be reinstated. I can now continue to work with staff to complete the end of year tasks and plan for 2014. I appreciate that the situation has been unsettling and that you will have questions about what has happened, but this is the time to focus on the students. Further community announcements will be made when it is appropriate to do so.
In the meantime please feel free to pop in and see me anytime if you have any questions about your child or any concerns about the school.
May God bless you all
