Good News

Religious Education News

Trinity Sunday

Trinity Sunday is celebrated on the Sunday after Pentecost, reminding us of the three different ways we experience the one God whom we worship. We worship God the Creator; we worship Jesus who experienced the life of a human; and we worship the way that God works within us – the Holy Spirit.

Prayer to the Holy Trinity

The Father is my hope.
The Son is my refuge.
The Holy Spirit is my protector.
Glory to the holy and undivided Trinity,
now and for ever.



Mini Vinnies Milo Mornings


On Thursday 11th June, the Year 5 Mini Vinnies will be selling warm milo from the canteen from 8.20 – 8.50am.  All Kindy and Preprimary students must be accompanied by a parent when buying their milo.  

In the past we have used, and then washed our own plastic cups.  Due to current health situation, we will use disposable cups.  We don’t want to hurt the environment so we greatly encourage students to bring along their own travel mug.   

We also ask you to bring the correct money where possible, to help us also reduce money handling.
