A Message from the Principal

In times of adversity, communities tighten. What a great opportunity for us to strengthen our ties with each other. We are very aware of your concerns in regards to your children’s education. Please rest assured that we are striving as a committed and capable staff to meet your child’s educational needs in the coming time. We are confident that we can rise to this challenge.

At St Anne’s Primary School we practice what we preach, educating our children is a relationship between families and school. We are so fortunate that we already have a positive working partnership. Educating our children is the responsibility of families and schools working together. 

While we are physically separated from each other, it is important to remember that God is all around us in the people that we meet and the world that we live in. Please take comfort from knowing that when things get tough, God carries us.

The Department of Health and Human Services has a number of resources on its website, which explain the virus, detail risk-reduction practices and behaviours, and answer frequently asked questions. These are available at www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus.
