Well done to all our competitors! For
going in with a positive attitude and
performing to the best of your ability.
On Thursday September 1, we have the opportunity to give praise and thanks to our God for the men in our lives who give us love and protection, guidance and direction. Father Greg will celebrate Mass at 9am and everyone is invited to join us. Mass will be followed by morning tea and Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles and Brothers are invited to spend time in classrooms.
P & F MEETING
The next P and F meeting will be held on Monday, August 22 at 4.30pm in the staffroom. Please come along and support the good work done by the committee. Last Friday’s fundraiser raised $500. This money was given to Deacon Peter to assist drought affected families in the Gulf/Savannah Parish.
(August 20 - 26th)
Susan Stephenson (The Book Chook) explains beautifully how we are a story
Australia draws its stories from so many places - from Nonna’s tales of the old country, from Disney,
from family and community life, from millions of wonderful books and from children’s own imaginations.
Story itself is the beating heart of teaching. It puts Maths and Science into context, brings History to life
and underpins English and the Arts.
Story not only tells us who we are, it tells us where we’ve come from and where we might go... We tell
ourselves stories from when we’re babes. Others tell us and show us stories as we grow. At school, we
learn to write stories and tell them to wider and more critical audiences.
We will celebrate Book Week with a “Poem in
My Pocket” day. The children are encouraged
to select / compose a short piece of verse and
dress as an appropriate character. We will
have a parade at assembly. You are very
welcome to be part of this as well.
ENROLMENTS FOR 2017
We have begun the enrolment process for Prep in 2017. If you know of families that are intending to enrol a Prep next year, please ask them to contact the office. Interviews will be held early in Term 3. At this stage, we have vacancies in Prep, Year 2 and Year 3 in 2017. This is because we are still to determine the shape and form of the two composite classes.
