END OF YEAR LITURGY
At 9.30am on Friday, 1st December we will be celebrating our final whole school liturgy for 2017. This will be a time for the school community to gather and celebrate all of the fantastic things that have happened throughout the 2017 year before we head into the Christmas holidays. The liturgy will also be an opportunity to bid farewell to Staff and families leaving the school. Please join us for the Liturgy and Assembly if you can, as always, you are warmly welcome. Students are required to be in uniform and will need their lunch. I have told the children that they may wear “Christmas Accessories” as appropriate.
We have had many special moments in this last week. The Senior Thanksgiving Celebrations were wonderful. Many thanks to those Year 5 families who assisted on the evening and also to Mrs Smith for her fantastic “behind the scenes” work. The Country Mile Café catered for the evening and the food was divine.
The recipient of the John Dunlea award for 2017, was Aila. Congratulations, Aila. At assembly yesterday, Mrs Jayme Dempsey, on behalf of Chris Dempsey Cranes, presented scholarships to Allira and Johnathan. These generous scholarships for students who will attend Ravenshoe State High, recognise hard work, behaviour, attendance and general citizenship in the school setting. Congratulations Allira and Johnathan. I am sure, like us, the McPherson and Forrest families are very grateful to the management of Chris Dempsey Cranes for their interest and ongoing investment in the lives of Ravenshoe students. Our 2017 chess champion is Blossom. Blossom was presented with a medallion on assembly yesterday. Congratulations, Blossom. This morning, our choir sang at the Respite centre and as always, the singing and the students were beautiful. Our concert last Friday was certainly a great occasion. Thank you for your support with the raffle. The bear, donated by Mrs Condon enabled us to give a donation of $160 to the local St Vincent de Paul Society.
Our celebrations tomorrow bring to a close what has been a wonderful and at times very challenging year. It is a chance for us to give thanks to our God for guidance and wisdom on this journey. It is also a chance for us to say goodbye to our Senior class, staff members and families who are leaving St Teresa’s. Travel safely, tread gently and have a happy break.
