School's back!

The uniforms were back on and lunchboxes packed across the Diocese last week as the 2023 school year began for students.

As the new school year begins, we'd like to extend a warm welcome to students, staff, and the school communities across our diocese. This year brings new challenges and opportunities for learning and growth, and we are all eager to start this journey together.

For students at St Columban's Mayfield and St Joseph’s Taree, the new school year is an exciting time to develop new skills and make new friends. 

See how the staff and students at St Columban's Mayfield and St Joseph’s Taree fared when the NBN and 7 News cameras rolled up on their first day.

Schools across the diocese have also welcomed new Principals for 2023. Some Principals include Kate Ferguson, who will lead the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle's oldest school, St John the Baptist Primary at Maitland, while Jeanette Fowles takes the post at the diocese's youngest primary school, St Aloysius Primary at Chisholm.

Here's to a successful and fulfilling school year!
