Principal Kathleen George-Nubono said it was the school’s vision to enrich each child’s learning journey.
“We have done our very best to ensure that all of our children hold a positive view of themselves and are ready to approach the future with self-confidence,” she said.
George-Nubono also acknowledged all the parents who worked hard at home, encouraging and supporting their children.
School students gathered at the St Joseph’s Hall on Monday night dressed up in themed costumes from different cultures around the world, and many parents and family members came along to show their support and commitment to their children’s education.
“They also deserved to be praised,” George-Nubono said.
