As our first semester closes I would like to thank everyone in the Chisholm community for their ongoing work and involvement in our year to date. Thank you and best wishes for the holiday break.

Included below is a mid-year message from the Executive Director of Catholic Education, Mr Wayne Bull.

Dear Colleagues, Parents, and Friends of Catholic Education WA,

We are now halfway through what has been a very busy year. Once again, I want to thank our principals, teachers, and support staff for the immense effort and commitment shown to ensure our schools run smoothly and deliver the quality education families have come to expect of us.

School production season hit full swing this term. The talent on display in these productions is commendable and I know there are hours of work by performers, musicians, production crew and staff which go in to making them a success. I congratulate all students and staff involved in these productions.

Another important milestone this term, is the annual LifeLink Days for Primary and Secondary Schools which marks its 25th anniversary this year. That’s twenty-five years of Catholic school students finding creative and inspiring ways to raise funds for this important cause, and I am inspired by the service to community they have all shown.  

The delivery of both the Federal and State budgets in May is a reminder of the complex funding environment in which Catholic schools operate. I know, as do many of you, that our schools save the Government a considerable amount of money, and in many parts of the Kimberley Catholic schools provide the only education service to families. In that context we continue to remind the Government that Catholic students in WA deserve a fair funding deal, one that is in line with other States, and which acknowledges the right parents have to choose a school which aligns with their personal beliefs.

Next term we will celebrate some examples of why parents make that choice as nominations for the Quality Catholic Education Awards open, as well as the Catholic Arts Festival and Angelico Exhibition. School and Office Leaders from across the State will also gather for our Leaders Forum Roadshows. These Roadshows are opportunities for our leadership to deepen their understanding of our core issues and solidify relationships which are so important to the smooth operation of our system.

I wish you all a safe and restful break. I look forward to seeing you again next term.

Yours sincerely
Wayne Bull – Executive Director

Mr John Bormolini
