AGM - Board Chair Report - 20th November 2017

Good evening and welcome fellow parents, teachers and Father Greg to our Annual Community Meeting for 2017. Thank you for taking the time to attend at what is traditionally a very busy time of the year for all of us. Although we are required by our Constitution to have these annual meetings, in my view they provide a very valuable opportunity to find out about what has been happening in our school, understand and reflect in our achievements, and to find about our future plans.
