St Vincent De Paul Christmas Hampers

Thank you, once again, for all the food donations that have been sent to school for the St Vincent de Paul Christmas Hamper collection. We are very grateful for the positive response that we have had to our request so far and are looking forward to adding to this collection over the few weeks.


Children’s Liturgy

CHILDREN’S LITURGY is held during the 9.30am Mass each Sunday at St Francis of Assisi church, and is for children from Pre-Primary to Year 4.  The children hear the Gospel story at their level and then follow with an activity.  Please bring your child to the hall before mass.  They will then return to the Church after the Prayers of the Faithful.

Family learning activities at the library

My name is Lisa, and I am a local TAFE student completing my Diploma of Library and Information Services.  I am also a casual team member with the City of Kalamunda Library services.

I am reaching out to the primary schools in the City of Kalamunda to invite your school community to participate in a survey regarding Family learning activities at the library.

Recently Kalamunda Library Services have partnered with Communicare to offer a range of free parenting sessions at some of the library branches in the area. Sessions included topics such as “Parenting in a Digital World” and “The 5 Love Languages of Children”.

I would love to hear from families regarding what type of learning-based programs and activities they would like to see at their local library. Participation in this survey is anonymous. No personal identifying information will be recorded.
