    Wishing you all a safe, happy and Holy Christmas


    Thanks to everyone in our school community who have worked so hard to make St Ita’s a truly wonderful learning environment this year.

    We have worked through a year of change and challenge due to Covid-19 and everyone; students, teachers and parents have gone above and beyond in setting up learning environments that are safe and in line with the ever changing regulations and expectations.

    Each year we grow bigger and bigger in terms of our student population and with this growth, the dynamics of our school change is immense. I thank all those in our learning community who are able to embrace the changing dynamic of St Ita’s and who work hard to make it a place where all students are nurtured academically, emotionally, spiritually, physically and socially.

    Thank you to all our students for the application they have put into their studies this year and for the way that they endeavour to live the Gospel values in their day to day schooling. Your efforts are to be commended and it is important that you make the time to have a fun, relaxed break from school.

    Thank you to our wonderful staff of St Ita’s for their enthusiasm, dedication and ongoing commitment to being great role models to all our children. We are blessed to have such a professional staff who constantly give above and beyond to make sure your children are loved, respected and cared for on their learning journey.

    I would also like to thank Father Peter Slater for his spiritual leadership, his wisdom and his ongoing support to all in the St Ita’s school community.

    To all in the St Ita’s community, I wish you all a safe, happy and Holy Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new 2021 school year.

    During Term 4, the Grade 5 and 6 students have had the opportunity to participate in a Golf Program. These sessions were conducted by Drouin Golf Club Professional, Anthony Bambridge. This was made possible through the Federal Government initiative, ‘Sporting Schools’. Each term, schools around Australia have the opportunity to receive funding that can be used in a variety of ways such by session delivery by an external coach, teacher resources and equipment. Students (and some teachers) developed their swing during these lessons and hopefully it will encourage a few of them to get out on a course over the summer and put their new skills into practice!
