From Principal – Term 1, Week 8

There has been a great deal going on at school over this past week. We have celebrated St Patrick’s Day and Harmony Day and we have enjoyed a wonderful Cool Pool Day.  In addition, the P&F have had a successful meeting and the School Advisory Council have met.  Finally, Paul Litherland from Surf Online Safe presented an informative and engaging workshop to a large crowd of receptive parents last Thursday evening.  This is indeed a busy school with plenty of exciting things going on for our students, parents, and staff.  I am most grateful to our staff and parents for organising all the “extras”.  The “extras” make school exciting and fun for our community.  When speaking to the Year 6 Student Leaders last week they commented on how grateful they are to their teachers for making school life fun.  There is still plenty more going on in the run up to the end of the term.  Please keep an eye on Seesaw notices and this newsletter to keep on top of the busy calendar.

Current families with young children wishing to commence Kindy or Pre-Kindy in 2024 are strongly encouraged to collect an enrolment pack from the office and return the enrolment application as soon as possible.  We can not allocate places for enrolment for students who have not returned forms.  Interviews for Kindy 2024 will take place in the final weeks of this term.  Pre-Kindy 2024 interviews will take place early in Term Two.





From Principal – Term 1, Week 4

On Wednesday the students attended Ash Wednesday Mass at St Francis of Assisi Church.  We were pleased to be able to share in a celebration of the Mass the parishioners.  This was the first school and parish Mass at the Church since 2021.  Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Church Season of Lent.  It is a time to focus on our relationship with God, and how we can be disciples of Jesus, in the way we act with others and in the ways in which we support the wider human family. It was the perfect way to commission our Year 5 students as members of the Mini Vinnies Association.




From Principal – Term 1, Week 3

I look forward to welcoming families and friends to the annual Welcome Night and Disco tonight in the Undercover Area commencing at 5.30 pm.  The P&F committee have put a lot of effort into ensuring a great night for our community. There will be plenty of treats on sale for the students and younger children.  Please come along and join in with other parents and families.  It promises to be a fun evening.  Parents are reminded to kindly take full responsibility for their own children and make sure they are in sight and safe at all times.



From Principal – Term 1, Week 2

Our students, staff and parents gathered together on Thursday morning, with our Parish Priest, Fr Joseph, to commission our Year 6 leaders into their various leadership roles for the year.  The Year 6 student leader roles have changed to include all students equally.  Our belief is, that given the opportunity and good support, all students all can be excellent leaders.     I look forward to working with our four student leadership councils during the year.


From Principal – Term 1, Week 1

It was an absolute pleasure to welcome our students back to school on Wednesday morning. The looks of excitement and anticipation on the children’s faces, for all that the year has in store for them, were a joy to behold. It is our challenge now, as parents and educators, is to continue to foster a sense of excitement for the learning journey, throughout the entire year.
