A MESSAGE FROM OUR ACTING PRINCIPAL
Dear Parents and Carers
Last weekend was very special for our First Eucharist candidates and we would like to thank Father Peter Wood for officiating at our Mass. It was a lovely celebration and we hope that the families enjoyed this sacramental event as much as the students and staff of the school. We also recognised these students as a school community during our school prayer on Monday.
YEAR 5 CAMP: I would like to congratulate the Year 5 campers for their exemplary behaviour while attending The Great Aussie Bush Camp this week. I had the opportunity to participate in the rainforest and sand dune experience, as well as the games night. It was fantastic to see the students participate so enthusiastically in all the activities. It was also great to hear the camp staff comment on how much they enjoyed interacting with our students over the three days. A huge thank you to Mrs Nosworthy, Miss Smith, Mrs de Bressac, Mrs Darrington, Mr Brazel and Mr Purkis for generously giving up their time from their families to support our campers.
STUDENT PHOTOS: Next term, Master School Photography will be at St Agnes' on Wednesday and Thursday of Week 2 to take our school photos. The timetable is outlined below. Please ensure that your child is in full school summer uniform, including correct shoes, socks and hair accessories. School photo envelopes can still be returned to school right up to your child's photo day. If you would like your children to have a sibling photo, please call in or ask your child to collect a form from the school office.
DANCE EISTEDDFOD: Congratulations to all dance groups who participated in the Port Macquarie Dance Eisteddfod last night. The dance groups were so encouraging and supportive of each other and their competitors. They also received some beautiful comments from the judges about their performances. Thank you to Mrs Ismay, Mrs Michell, Mrs Baird, Mrs Todd and Mrs Gardiner for all their dedication and hard work throughout the year to ensure that each of the groups were well prepared. Mrs Ismay has listed the results in her section of this newsletter.
STAFF NEWS: Congratulations to Krysten Jones who has been appointed as the Leader of Curriculum/Digital Pedagogies for the remainder of the year. Krysten has replaced Christy Ismay in this role while she is fulfilling the Acting Assistant Principal role.
SRC END OF TERM TREAT: It was great to finish the term today with the End of Term Treat assembly. Thank you to the SRC for organising such fun and entertaining activities!
UNIFORM CHANGE: It’s that time of year again when the winter uniforms can be packed away, as we head back into summer uniforms on Monday 10 October. If you have found that your child has grown out of their Winter uniform and/or it is no longer required in your family, you can donate them to our uniform pool. Details are listed below:
CAR PARK RESTORATION: During the holidays, work will commence to replace the driveway behind the Staff and Administration block. This work will deny vehicle access to the car park from Saturday 24 September until Friday 7 October. Thank you again to the Parish for continually supporting restoration and improvement work at St Agnes’.
HOLIDAY WISHES: I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a relaxing and safe holiday. I look forward to welcoming everyone back next term and can’t wait to be part of the exciting learning opportunities and events that will be occurring at St Agnes’ during Term 4.
