Welcome to Year 5 Class Page!
I am so happy you have decided to pay us a visit. My name is Lucas Kocan and I am privileged to be accompanying your child during the next step of his/ her school journey. Your child’s Class Teaching Assistant this year is going to be Mrs Fleming. I have been a part of Bishop Parker Catholic School for quite some time and last year I taught Year 6 class. Apart from playing the guitar, I also love playing football or basketball in my free time. I am a father to 3 fantastic children (our youngest was born in June this year so he keeps us on our toes most of the timeJ). My most recent passion is Philosophy for Children; I am convinced that your child will catch a ‘philosophy bug’ this year too.
