Last Friday the four school captains and I were given the opportunity to spend the day at St Thomas' School in Mareeba to learn more about social justice issues and what we can do to help the world's most vulnerable people. Student representatives from seven schools around the tablelands participated in the workshop and were asked to come up with creative ideas on how they could promote the Project Compassion appeal and raise funds with their schools in a fun and engaging way.
As of next week, the school leaders and I will sit down to work out which (of the many) fundraising ideas that they came up with we will do. Our promotion will begin in the first week back of Term Two and continue for the whole month of May.
ST PATRICK'S DAY
On Friday 17th March we celebrate the feast day of St Patrick. St Patrick was a very humble and gentle man and is most significantly remembered for using a shamrock as a symbol of the Holy Trinity. It was his sign to show God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Our School Cross Country is on Friday the 31st March which is the last day of term. Five, sit and seven year old children will run their cross country here at school from 9.00am. Eight, nine, ten, eleven and 12 year old children will be running at the Junior Rugby League fields from 9.30am. All students are to take part in this event, even if they walk the track. Children will wear their team colours for this event. We have started training for the children. Mrs Smith will be with the children Monday, Thursday and Fridays at 10.30am. Children may bring their joggers to change into for their training.
Let's all get fit together!!
