Dear Parents,


It’s been a week of celebrations! On Wednesday evening the school community gathered at St Agnes Church for the Confirmation of Year 2 and other children throughout the school. The children were thoroughly prepared by the Year 2 teachers and lead capably by Mrs U’Brien and Mr Bushe.Congratulations to all and thank you to parents, students, staff and members of our wider Catholic community for their participation and support.

Earlier during the day on Wednesday, The Most Reverend Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett visited the Confirmants at school and spent time speaking with the children, asking them questions and providing answers to all their questions. This allowed the children to get to know the Bishop on a more personal level and he generously shared aspects of his own childhood and sacramental journey.

We have also marked NAIDOC Week; a national celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The photographs on the front cover tell some of the story of how we highlighted this important event. In addition to dancing and music we also welcomed students from Newman Senior Technical College and St Joseph’s Primary School for a bush tucker barbeque and other activities. Thank you to Mrs Kate Morris and Mrs Donna Sprague for their outstanding leadership that enabled these events to take place.

Last Friday, St Agnes was represented by the Jones and Minogue families at the New England Regional Gallery for the presentation of the University of New England School Acquisitive Art Prize. Our School won the 2014 Most Outstanding School Award. St Agnes’ was fortunate to have 3 finalists Jett Hanson (1B), Wilson Minogue (3S) and Kelsey Jones (6MC).


Have a wonderful weekend.



SEMESTER TWO TIMETABLE CHANGES: This week, the school began a new CAPA timetable, involving many swaps to student times. CAPA days will now be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This allows an opportunity to ensure that session time is equally shared throughout the week. A further professional learning opportunity has been provided to staff each Tuesday. Mrs Trish Todd, Mrs Larissa Toohey and Mrs Anne Marie Webb have accepted this
additional teaching load. This has ensured a smooth transition for the students. Each Tuesday, these teachers will be working through Personal Development and Health (PDH) units with all children in K-6. 


POSITION VACANT ABORIGINAL EDUCATION ASSISTANT: St Agnes’ Primary School, 30 hours per week (Across five days) commencing ASAP. Maternity leave position until 17 October 2014. Possibility of extension into a

part-time position at the end of the contract. For more information: http://www.lism.catholic.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Prim-PortStAgnes-Indigenous-TA.pdf


FAIR MEETING: Our first Fair meeting was held Monday this week. Thank you to the parents that attended. Once again, it has been decided to approach Bunnings and Coles for the major prizes in the school raffle.
