On the 9th of December 2022, our school held a retirement ceremony for our dear principal, Madam Mary John. Before starting the event, all staff were gathered in the Conference Room for a farewell celebration.


At 8:30 a.m., students were required to assemble at the Plaza of SMK St Teresa. We could hear the students cheering and giving a round of applause at the arrival of Madam Mary accompanied by the penolong kanan.


The ceremony started with the singing of the national anthem and state anthem followed by the school rally.
