A MESSAGE FROM OUR  PRINCIPAL

 Dear Parents and Carers

It was lovely to celebrate the beginning of the week with the Year 6 Leadership Retreat Day. This was followed by the Year 4 Penance Reflection Day. Both events were held at the Youth Hub. We are so lucky to have access to this great facility within our community. A big thank you to the Year 6 and Year 4 teaching staff, along with Mrs Cath U'Brien for coordinating these special events for the children.

YOUTH AND FAMILY MASS: A reminder that our school is hosting the Music Ministry for the Parish Mass at 5:00pm on Sunday. We hope that many families can join us.

PENANCE: We ask that you keep our Sacrament of Penance Candidates in your prayers this week, as on Tuesday evening they receive this Sacrament. We thank the Year 4 teachers and other staff members who have supported them in their preparation. Sacraments are a highlight within our School Calendar and we look forward to their special ceremony. We would like to remind families that the ceremony begins at 6:00pm. Child-minding will be available for other siblings to ensure that the ceremony remains a reverent occasion for all who are involved.

Best wishes to the following students:

Aidan Archer, Dominic Buckley, Charly Buntschu, Cooper Burns, Falyn Carle, Samantha Carlton, Jackson Carney, Joseph Carrick, Elkie Croft, Ryan Dalton, Kiara Dalton, Oliver Dare, Braeden Fuller, Izaiah Galea, Billy Gleeson, Katie Godden, Joshua Graham, Piper Graham, Max Hanley, Jasmine Hurley, Fletch Irwin, Riley Judd, Heath Kilpatrick, Christopher Konstantas, Isaac Lewis, Kimberley Manns, Libby Matthews, Hunter Mayes, Justice McDonald, Olivia McGahon, Brae McGregor, Hayden McIntosh, Jai MeehanGraham, Nikolas Mihalopoulos, Savannah Nowak, Lara Peklar, Nicholas Petro, Charlotte Porteous, Nate Prior, Hunter Sirovica, Charlotte Smith, Marcella Stace, Mekhi Thomson, Tobias Toohey, Mikayla Walsh, Ruby Watts, Mitchell White and Ky Yardley

P&F AGM: Thank you to the parents that joined us for the AGM meeting on Monday night. We would like to thank Nicole Prince and Peta Watters for their many years of contribution to the P&F as they step down from executive roles in 2017.

I have the pleasure of announcing the following appointments to the P&F Executive for the 2017 school year:

- President: Kathy Moloney

- Vice President: Hayley McGrath

- Treasurer: Phil Hatherly

- Secretary: Debbie Ross

We look forward to working in partnership together to achieve some great fundraising results for the school.

PARENT ASSEMBLY REPRESENTATIVE: We would like to announce that Michelle McClure has been appointed to the role of St Agnes' Parent Assembly representative. We thank Lisa Toomey for her involvement last year.

PARENT THANK YOU: We have received the following thank you from Nichole Turner: My family and I want to say a huge thank you for all the support, generosity and kindness we have been given after the sudden loss of my partner Ray, and Cooper’s daddy. Thank you to the entire school community, including the staff, office ladies and parents. A special thank you to Craig Brazel, Simone Duff, Michael and Caroline Rohr and all the Year 3 parents. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

MEDICAL ALERT: EPIPEN RECALL: The Federal Government Therapeutic Goods Administration advised that pharmaceutical company Alphapharm is recalling four batches of EpiPen 300 microgram adrenaline injection syringe autoinjectors. EpiPen is used in emergency situations to treat people who are having a severe allergic reaction (also known as anaphylaxis). It has been identified that EpiPens from the four affected batches may contain a defective part that could result in the auto-injector failing to activate or a need to apply more force than normal to activate. EpiPens from affected batches can be returned to pharmacies and exchanged for one from a different, unaffected batch free of charge.

CONGRATULATIONS: to our PBS winners for this week: Shaun Baillon, Matt Dzikowski, Kohdi Edmondston, Roxy-Skye Eyles, Sienna Goldring, Cooper Hodge, Zsofia Rohr and Eliza Todd.

ST AGNES PARISH MESSAGE: Parish Administration Centre staff were saddened to hear about the sad loss of our excolleague and friend Brian Kirkman who passed away on Sunday 19 March. Brian was known to many through his work with the schools as the Parish’s first School Fees Manager, a position that he held from 1989 to 2012. Most who knew Brian will remember him for being a mad keen Rabbitohs’ supporter. He also had an acute interest in watching the money market. Our condolences go out to his wife Kerrie, son Christopher and daughter Elizabeth and their respective spouses and children. Brian’s funeral was held at 10:00am at St Agnes’ Church today. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. - Rest in Peace Brian.

CONDOLENCES: Brian is also the grandfather of Kai (6N), Braeden (4A) and Talani Fuller (1I).
