PARENT INFORMATION SESSIONS
On Tuesday 6th February, we are running our annual Parent Information Session. This year, the format will be different. You are invited to join us in the library where different staff members will speak to and demonstrate the following.
Morning Routines, our Social and Emotional Learning resource, Class Websites,
Reading Homework and our Annual Improvement Plan. We will hold two sessions. Session 1: 3.30pm—4.30pm,
Session 2: 4.45pm—5.45pm. Basically, this is an opportunity to find out why we do what we do. Your children are welcome to play outside while the meetings are being held. Tea and Coffee will be available. Please give this careful consideration. As I say ad nauseum, your children cannot exist in two learning worlds. It is imperative that you know the language of learning in this context.
OPENING SCHOOL LITURGY
Our first whole-school liturgy for the year will be celebrated on Friday morning 9th February at 9am. It will provide an opportunity to pray together as a school community for the coming year and is also a special celebration for our School and House captains who will receive their badges and be officially inducted into their roles and commit to being outstanding role models of our school community.. The student leaders have already been busy in their roles organising the weekly assemblies.
ST PATRICK'S DAY FETE
Preparations have begun for the St Patrick’s Day fete on Friday 16th March. We are looking for helpers to either convene or help out with the stalls. Even an hour of your time will be greatly appreciated. Please add your name to the roster sent home yesterday so that our convener, Deacon Peter can sleep easily knowing all the stalls are organized. Students are permitted to wear coloured clothes on Friday 2nd February in return for bringing either a gold coin, a 1.25litre bottle of soft drink or something appropriate for the cent sale.
