🍏 Good luck Mr Vane Tempest 🍎 Our staff, students and the parent community have all been incredibly grateful for the unwavering support from Tim during the last seven years at St Matthew's. With his focus on learning and positive relationships, St Matt's has always remained a safe place for our community to be. In turn this has helped our community to remain positive and resilient during all that it has endured. In fact, we go from strength to strength, focused on being safe, respectful and responsible learners. We live this every day at St Matthew's and thank him greatly for his leadership. We hope you enjoy this reflection video, shared as one of the many beautiful tributes during Tim's farewell mass. We wish him all the best as he moves on to St Nicholas of Myra Primary Penrith

🎢 Community Fun Day 🎡 Our kids are the epitome of resilience and we are so very proud. It has been a roller coaster of emotions at St Matthew's this week. Amongst reflections on the successes and challenges of the year and tearful farewells, there have been some incredible highs. Here are a selection of photographs from yesterday's Community Fun Day. This day was paid for, in part, thanks to a grant from Resilience NSW for which we are very grateful. Students enjoyed a hot pizza lunch from Aldo's Pizza & Pasta Mcgraths hill and then launced into a full afternoon of play! Face painting, jumping castles and a visit from @Fire and Rescue NSW Station 081 Windsor. made for an awesome afternoon! But could anything be more fun than dunking your teachers?! We think not!! Well done St Matthew's!! Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta
