Bittersweet is the first day of school: a bit bitter as parents bid farewell to their near constant summertime companions and whole lot of sweet… as parents bid farewell to their near constant summertime companions! Our newly appointed school leaders, Junior Principal Brian Nolan and St. Conleth’s CEO Tony Kilcommons, were there to take the youngsters off their hands and our teachers got straight to work with them in the sparkling clean classrooms.
But school, at least at St. Conleth’s, is also about the education of the yard, the canteen and the hallways, where students are encouraged to mix freely (within their pods!) and imaginatively. Each year we seem to have a bit more space, a bit more light to encourage the growth of young minds and bodies. Yes, the Juniors are off and running, but stay tuned as our Seniors start to arrive!
