Dear Parents and Carers, 

Today we farewell several members of the current St Patrick’s staff team and announce our new staff members.


Thank you and blessings on your retirement to Mrs Pat Platts who in recent years has been our teacher librarian. Mrs Platts has worked at St Patrick’s for 15 years and has held many roles and responsibilities including classroom teacher, Indonesian teacher and the numeracy improvement teacher.

Thank you and farewell to Mrs Mary Kite who has been part of the staff team for 17 years. Mrs Kite has shared her skills and talent in roles including classroom teaching, teacher librarian, classroom support teacher and Assistant Principal. We wish Mrs Kite well in her new role in the Bega community.

Thank you and farewell to Mrs Emma Kettle who has worked for the past 7 years at St Pat’s. Mrs Kettle has been a part-time classroom teacher in the junior years during her time at our school. We wish her well as she commences teaching in a school closer to her home.

Thank you and farewell to Mr Brendon Reynolds who joined our team for 2020. We trust the Reynold’s family enjoy the move back to the Queensland sunshine. We thank Mrs Reid for undertaking the fulltime teaching role in 23R for next semester. 

Welcome to the new staff commencing in Semester 2

Ms Sally Nicholas will undertake the position of Year 56K teacher.

Ms Michelle Dempsey will undertake the position of PDHPE teacher and Teacher Librarian.

Mrs Sofie Rodda will be the Friday teacher in KMc, Ms Kaye will continue as the Monday – Thursday teacher.

May the holiday provide time for rest, relaxation, fun, family and may all remain in good health.
