Dear Parents, Friends, Staff and Students
Over many months, there has been a lot of behind the scenes preparation for our 30th Anniversary Quiz Night and we are looking forward to the event this Saturday night (19th June), starting at 7.00 p.m. (Doors open at 6.30p.m.) The proceeds of this event will be put towards our new nature playground, which the students are very excited about. A huge thank you to Simone Cain and all of the team that supported her in organising this event. We are very blessed and grateful to have such a supportive and hard working parent community.
Year Four Mass
Congratulations to all of the Year 4 students who participated so reverently in their first class mass since receiving their First Eucharist on Sunday 30th May. Thank you to Father Joseph for leading the celebration, and Mrs Brescacin and Mrs Schelfhout for preparing the mass. It was lovely to see all the parents and family who attended and shared morning tea with the students.
Pyjama Day – Life Link Fundraiser
We will be having a fundraiser in the last week of this term for Life Link, which is the umbrella organisation for many Catholic welfare agencies in Perth. Students and staff will be dressing up in their pyjamas for the day and donating to this very worthy cause.

Semester One Reports
A message was sent to all parents from PP to Year 6 on Tuesday 15th June about setting up their access to SEQTA so that academic reports can be viewed and downloaded. It is imperative that parents organise this quickly, as the link that has been given, expires within one week.
30th Anniversary Sundowner Invitation – Spread the Word!
A Sundowner invitation was sent home to all families last week. Copies can be found in the document rack in the administration office. Please come along to the sundowner and join us as we celebrate our 30th year. We would love as many past parents, students and staff to join us for this celebratory event on Friday 23rd July at 6.00pm. Please spread the word so we can have a great turn out. Please note that this is an over 18 event. Please inform Mrs Kays or Mrs Renzullo in the office if you can attend.
Online Absentee Form
Parents are reminded that a notice of absence is required for students who are not attending school, for any reason. An SMS is sent to parents if we have not been notified of an absence by 9.15am. Absentee forms are no longer available on the Skoolbag App. An online absentee form can be accessed via the website at the following link: https://www.gibney.wa.edu.au/online-absentee-form/
11th Sunday of Ordinary Time
Sometimes, even when you’ve planted the seeds, it may look for a time like nothing is happening. But that’s only because you can’t see what is going on beneath the soil.
You need to give it time.
You need to trust God to do his work.
We must plant the seeds.
God will make his kingdom grow.
