A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
Dear Parents and Carers
Congratulations to the 130 children that participated in the Paul Wilson Cup yesterday. A great time was had by all and they should be congratulated on the way they conducted themselves. The children enjoyed the Out of Uniform Day today to support the Year Five and Six children to attend camp. We are holding another one of these days next Friday, with the same gold cold donation.
CAR PARK - NEW PROCESS: As discussed at the recent P&F Meeting, with the installation of the new gates to the car park area, we will now be securing more of the school property throughout the day. Gates to the car park will now be closed during the day and open for Car Park Pick-up at 3:00pm, the same time as the front school gates. We thank you for supporting us in this new process to further support the safety and security of all within the school community.
KINDERGARTEN 2019: It has been lovely to meet the children and parents that have completed applications for Kindergarten enrolment in 2019. They are certainly a beautiful bunch of children and we are looking forward to having them join our school community. Over the coming months, they will have orientation and transition opportunities to become more familiar with the school setting.
NARRATED MASS - COMMUNION: A reminder that this weekend the Narrated Mass will be held for all children involved in the Sacrament of First Eucharist (Holy Communion). Please refer to Mass times and we look forward to seeing you there!
YEAR FIVE AND SIX CAMP - RAFFLE TICKETS AND DRAW: Thank you to the families that have already returned their completed raffle ticket books. If you haven't received all 10 raffle books that you are entitled to sell, please call the office on 6583 7433 and we will send them home with your child. Raffle Prizes include a $400 Good Guys Gift Card, a $200 and $100 Coles Myer Gift Card and 2 by $50 Munster Street Butchery Vouchers. Tickets are $1 each and the raffle will be drawn next Friday 17 August 2018. All raffle books need to be returned by Thursday if you would like the entries added to the draw.
A reminder that payment instalments can be still made for the Year Five camp for a few weeks, but all Year Six camp fees must be finalised by Friday 17 August. If you are having any financial difficulties meeting the cost associated with camp, please feel free to contact me at school.
P&F MEETING: The next P&F Meeting will be held at 5:45pm on Monday 20 August 2018 in the staffroom. This will be a very important meeting, as we will be making final decisions about what to spend the fundraising money on for this year. We invite all families to be a part of this important parental involvement aspect within the school community. All parents are most welcome!
SCHOOL WEBSITE: Last week, I announced that we are currently in the process of redeveloping our school website with support from both the Parish and Catholic Schools Office staff. This change will also include another new format for the newsletter. If you have any suggestions regarding content or information that you would like to see added, please don't hesitate to share your ideas with our school email account firstname.lastname@example.org.
STAFFING UPDATE: We are excited to announce the following appointment for the remainder of the 2018 school year:
- Ms Lauren Drayton has been appointed to the position of Creative Arts (Drama) Teacher each Thursday. This replaces Mr Steve Hall to allow him to work in the Student Support Worker role. Lauren has worked for us in a casual teacher capacity throughout the year and is very excited about this appointment.
CONGRATULATIONS: We congratulate the following PBS raffle winners for this week: Olivia Abdelnour, Olive Anderson, Lucas Constantine, Lachlan Dunn, Addison English, Maddison Evans, Jack Fennell and Noah Joyce.
