Our website may be the first point of contact for information about our wonderful school, but there is nothing quite like exploring the real thing. Please contact us and we would be delighted to arrange a time to show you around.
This year, we are offering the Sacramental Program for Reconciliation and Confirmation to any students, year 3 and up, who are baptized and wish to take part. We hope to secure dates by the beginning of Term 2 for you.
If your child is not baptized or not Catholic and they wish to participate in these programs, please come and see Mr Aiken or myself and we can discuss how to move forward with this.
Undertaking the Sacraments is a key aspect of continuing our personal journey with God and the Parish is very welcoming of all who wish to join us in this journey.
We will require a copy of your child’s Baptism Certificate before commencing the sacramental program for parish records.
If you would like your child to complete their Sacraments this year, please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office as we need to confirm our numbers for this year and pass these details onto the Atherton Parish.
If you have any queries or concerns, please contact either Mr Michael Aitken or myself.
We have been blessed again to hold our Cross Country in beautiful weather conditions, not too hot and not too cold. All the students ran or walked the course with the main objective of finishing and earning points for their team. We had great cheering from all the parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters.
Last week, students in Year 3 and Year 5 took part in the online practice NAPLAN tests. All students completed the Omnibus test (a combination of Reading, Conventions of Language and Numeracy) and the Year 5 students also had an online writing test for the first time.
I was really impressed with how the children conducted themselves in the tests. The Year 5’s were quick on their keyboards during the writing session to get all of their ideas down before the program automatically closed down when the given amount of time was up.
