St Thomas of Canterbury assigned the new Year 6 Leadership roles and we have a message from the 2014/15 Head Boy and Head Girl who came in to visit and wanted to pass a message on to their successors:

"Being Head Boy and Head Girl has influenced our lives forever. The privileges that have come with these roles have made us realise that we only have to be ourselves to succeed.

The glistening of the badges we wear help us to understand what we represent in our Catholic community, they fill our hearts with a sense of never-ending pride that we reflect on each day of our lives.

In order to achieve such great roles in Saint Thomas of Canterbury, high expectations are required such as: a sense of responsibility, an academic brain but most of all – pride."  

With love, Head Girl and Head Boy 2015 – Aleksandra and Jesse.



"Hard work can get you to the very top if you push yourself with a positive attitude. Everyone should have an aspiration to become something great in life we and we certainly do. We always knew that the education here was going to be the type that we would relish, especially in Year 6! The teachers we met throughout our six years in St Thomas of Canterbury always pushed us to do our very best and that has definitely affected us as people. We managed to get into grammar school with the help of St Thomas. This school’s encouraging spirit helped all of our class to take the path of a good education to reach our goals and we feel that getting into grammar school was the first step in our future education. We definitely know that doing your best, believing in yourself and staying positive will always get you where you aspire to be. We will always be thankful to St Thomas of Canterbury for everything it gave us."
