Nurturing the self worth
and potential of all…
Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School is a school dedicated to making a valued difference in the lives of our children. We trust that when people look back at the time spent in our school they cherish fond memories of a genuine and faithful community, ‘Under God’s Protection’ always.
I would like to begin our newsletter acknowledging the valuable contributions of our volunteers. This week is National Volunteer Week; a week where we take the time to recognise the value volunteers add to our school community. Our volunteers include our regular canteen volunteers, reading book exchange volunteers, classroom parent help volunteers, P&F parent reps, P&F executive members, event volunteers and School Advisory Council volunteer members. Our parents and grandparents are always eager to put their hands up to volunteer, when asked. I just need to take a look at the list of volunteers for the P&F Election Day Sausage Sizzle, to see that volunteering is built into the culture of our school community. On behalf of the staff, I thank all our volunteers for the work you do. You are highly valued, and we are always grateful for the positive difference you make to the quality of services we can offer our students, families and the wider Matthew Gibney community.
