A MESSAGE FROM OUR ACTING ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL
MRS CHRISTY ISMAY
 

Dear Parents

PRESENTING MR & MRS YARNOLD............What a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding! Last Saturday brought a smile to many St Agnes’ faces, as Miss Wieland married her fiance’, Mr Aaron Yarnold at St Agnes’ Catholic Church. The bride looked stunning! We wish them lots of love and happiness and look forward to welcoming Mrs Yarnold back to St Agnes’ in Term 2.

THANK YOU YEAR 4: Year 4 had the huge task of presenting us with the story of Holy Week over the last 7 days. All three Year 4 classes reverently engaged us in the events of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday. Thank you for your efforts Year 4, you provided us with a lovely journey towards Easter on Sunday.

EASTER HAT PARADE: The Hall was awash with bright colours, glitter and eggs yesterday morning as K-6 paraded their Easter Hat creations for all to see. This is such a fun biannual event and the children put so much effort into their imaginative headwear!

ANZAC DAY: This year, ANZAC Day falls on Saturday, at the end of Week 1, Term 2. Traditionally, St Agnes’ invites any interested students to march behind the school banner in the parade down Horton Street to the Town Green. A permission note will be sent home this afternoon with more details. If your child/children are able to represent the school in the march, please return the tear off section to the School Office by Friday, 24 April.

GOD MOMENTS: Congratulations to • Lily Lazzaro - for her honesty when she found a valuable item that a parent visitor to the school had lost. • Toby Lewis - for the selfless way he helped Mrs U’Brien set up for Monday morning prayer, and then used his own initiative to tidy up afterwards without being asked. • Jaz Letchford & Sienna Oxley - for the reverence they showed during the singing at 4P’s prayer on Monday morning • Ruby Huggett - for the maturity she showed during a difficult situation. Your teachers have noticed the way that you are all Making Jesus Real in your own lives and we are proud to have you as a part of the St Agnes’ community.

YEAR 6 HIGH SCHOOL ENROLMENT VISIT: On Wednesday, Year 6 had a visit from Cath Eichman and Claudette Stace from St Joseph’s Regional and Anne O’Brien from MacKillop College. Accompanying them were 3 of our exstudents, Cameron Hunt, Siena Grima and Abby Newman, who gave the kids a student’s perspective of High School. It was a great chance for our Year 6 students to hear a lot about the process that they will be engaging in over the rest of the year as they complete their applications, interviews and orientations for their transition into Year 7.

BEFORE SCHOOL KEYBOARD LESSONS: Many of you will remember Anne Russell, who was the Music Teacher at St Agnes' for many years. Anne also runs her own business, Port Macquarie Academy of Music and will be offering keyboard lessons at school from Week 2, Term 2. All lessons are in small groups and incorporate music theory and practical instrument tuition so students will learn to read and play music. Lessons are always held outside normal class time to minimise disruption. Groups are an economical way to gauge your child’s interest and commitment before moving into private lessons at a later date. WHEN: Fridays 8:15am - 8:45am WHERE: School CAPA Room COST: $17 per lesson payable by the term. (A book kit will be available for purchase at the first lesson). Students are required to bring their instrument to school on lesson day. Please make sure keyboards have piano size keys and batteries (for lessons). If you’re in any doubt about instrument requirements please give Anne a call before you purchase. All payments and bookings will be made through Port Macquarie Academy of Music, not through the School Office. To register or make further enquiries email Anne Russell at music_academy@bigpond.com or phone 0412 071 162 All the best for a happy, safe and holy Easter break!
