ARCHDIOCESE OF CANBERRA REPORT: After two years of planning, design and construction, the Archdiocese’s newest school, Mother Teresa Primary in Harrison, has been blessed by Archbishop Mark Coleridge and officially opened.
Parents and the local community attended the ceremony, which allowed students and staff to show what they have accomplished in the short time the school has been running.
Students treated the audience to a musical presentation, acting out the stages of the school’s development, from the first brick laid to the birth of a successful primary school with almost 300 students.
Principal Mr Michael Lowe said the school was still growing. It currently offers education from preschool to year three, but expects to increase to year six by 2014.
