Catholic Schools Week

Canberra Region Trades Training Centre

MR DOSZPOT (Brindabella) (6.53): This morning I had the pleasure of attending the Catholic Schools Week function at St Michael's primary school, Kaleen. Colleagues from the Assembly who also attended included Zed Seselja, Alistair Coe and Vicki Dunne from the Liberal Party. From Labor we had the minister, Minister Bourke, and Mary Porter, and from the Greens, Meredith Hunter. This is an annual event that most of us have been attending for quite a few years. They generally are very inspirational events that we attend at St Michael's, and today's was no exception.

Congratulations to Mrs Judy Walsh and her fantastic staff, including assistant principal Mrs Val Chiufetelli, Mrs Zita Clifford and Ms Jo Pelle. Father Peter Doai, the parish priest, also supported the event, as he always does. I also congratulate all the teachers and the parents who came along to celebrate this morning's function. The Catholic Education Office had a strong representation, with the Director of Catholic Education, Moira Nadjecki, and her deputy, Mark Hogan, and Helen Casey.

St Michael's primary school, Kaleen is a Catholic systemic school, catering for 215 students and their families. Currently they have nine classes, from kindergarten to year 6. Judy Walsh told us that at St Michael's, the staff, the students and the parish strive to provide an integrated approach to education. The community integrates their faith with contemporary life, and gospel values are reflected in their policies, structures and relationships. The school acknowledges parents as prime educators in their child's education.

St Michael's school motto is "Live in Harmony."It symbolises their desire to live in harmony with God, self, others and the environment. Each member of St Michael's
