Greg's Message

Dear Parents and Friends of St Anne’s

Today at 1pm sees the conclusion of an action packed, fun filled term; a term where it has been a delight to observe our students' growth. The growth I’m referring to is socially, spiritually, physically and academically. It has been wonderful to have the students and staff back at our great school full time this term, given the Covid19 impact last year. Congratulations students and staff on a terrific term. I thank our families for their continued support of the school. Some of the term highlights include:

  • opening of the school year mass
  • sacrament of Confirmation celebrated
  • successful transition of students into new classes (well done Foundation students!)
  • twilight sports
  • year 4,5 and 6 interschool sport
  • volleyball clinics
  • swimming team
  • year 4,5 and 6 Queenscliff camp
  • parent information night
  • open days
  • working bee

In concluding, I wish everyone a happy, safe and holy Easter.

Annual school photos including sibling photos will be taken at St Anne’s Primary School by Arthur Reed Photos on Wednesday 21st April, 2021.

There is no need to return any forms or money to school.
Unique image codes will be issued to all students on/after photo day so families can register online to view images when they become available in the webshop.

Registration is simple, just follow the 3 simple steps on your child’s personalised flyer once you receive it and remember to add the codes for all your children attending this school.

Even if you registered last year, it’s important that you do again this year using your child’s 2021 image code to link their images for the current year with your contact details.

When images are ready to view and in the webshop, all parents who have registered will be notified by SMS and email.

Once registered, please wait for notification that 2021 images are online to view before making your purchase.
