The teachers are in the process of writing progress reports for the students. So much time and effort goes into the preparation of these reports and I am very grateful to them for their dedication and commitment. Reports will be posted on the parent portal on Thursday June 27. The teachers will conduct parent/teacher/student conferences in Week 10. Notes detailing available times will be sent home soon. We would encourage you to bring your children to these conferences as the conversations around learning, growth and progress will be very helpful to all stakeholders.
Prep Interviews have commenced. Talking with these little ones and their families is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my work. Currently we have ten Preps on our list for 2020. As in previous years, we will run a Prep Transition programme in Term 4.
Sacramental preparation will commence soon. Please contact us if you wish your child to be part of this programme.
Grandparents day will be held on Friday July 26. There will be a liturgy at 10am followed by morning tea and entertainment. More details will follow in Term 3.
Congratulations to our Readers Cup Team! It was a fierce competition this year with 49 teams competing. Zoe, Meille, Jackson and Johnny placed 32nd overall. There were teams from as far north as Thursday Island and Weipa and south to Tully. Our St Teresa’s team demonstrated the ability to work as a team, while having fun! It was an absolute pleasure to attend the Readers Cup Competition with the team and they should be extremely proud of themselves for the dedication and commitment they showed throughout the competition, from start to finish. Well done team!
INTERHOUSE SPORTS DAY – FRIDAY 28th JUNE, 2019
It’s that time of the year again, Interhouse Sports Day. This will be held next Friday the 28th of June on our oval. Students wear their coloured shirts to represent their teams. They can wear their coloured joggers, coloured sunscreen, ribbons in their hair, coloured hairspray etc but please note: children are not to bring their hairspray to school. We have Oak which is green, Wattle is yellow and Cedar is red.
We welcome all our parents, grandparents, friends and supporters to come along and barrack for the students as they run races, skip, run relays and participate in ball games. The more the merrier. We have the Interhouse Sports Trophy up for grabs.
