A MESSAGE FROM OUR  PRINCIPAL
MRS GINAYA YARNOLD
Dear Parents and Carers,

This week was certainly another special week at St Agnes' Primary School. Our Grandparents Liturgy was really well attended and was such a beautiful celebration around the important role of the extended family. The children were so excited to have the grandparents and special visitors return to school for the lunch and classroom visits that were organised. A huge thank you to the K-2 team for leading this lovely school celebration. We look forward to celebrating Literacy and Numeracy Week next week at school. Further information about this is provided on the following pages. YEAR 6 CAMP: What a wonderful experience it was for all involved! I had the opportunity to visit the campers all day Tuesday and enjoy the Giant Swing, Damper, Campsite and BMX activities with a couple of the groups. I cannot offer a bigger thank you to the Mrs Nosworthy, Mrs Jennings, Miss Smith, Mrs Brown, Mr Taylor and Mr Bate who all gave up four full days away from their own families to give our students this amazing experience. I'm sure you can imagine what a big task it is to take over 90 twelve year olds away for three nights. We appreciate your dedication and support of our Year 6 children.

FATHER’S DAY: Father's Day is creeping up on us and we are looking forward to once again, welcoming the fathers in the St Agnes' family to our celebration. On Friday 4 September, we invite the fathers in our community to join us at school for a bacon and egg roll breakfast, hosted and supplied by our P&F between 8:00am and 8:50am. This will be followed by a short blessing in the Hall at 9:00am. In order for the P&F to cater adequately for this, we ask that you book your requirements online. A note has gone home with the website and booking code. (It has been attached to the electronic copy of this newsletter) Please note that bacon and egg rolls are for the fathers and father figures only. A sausage sandwich will be available for all other guests and children.

ST AGNES' PARISH: Following on from my newsletter article last week, I would like to give you a brief snapshot about another parish entity. Catholic Care of the Aged (CCA): CCA is responsible for the Parish's ministry for older people, particularly those in need. With over 600 people in their care, CCA is the largest aged care provider within the Hastings and Macleay areas.

FUTURE P&F MEETING - HOMEWORK EVALUATION AND INSIGHT SRC DATA: The following is a copy of the information provided in the newsletter last week: As you would be aware, at the end of 2014 we introduced new guidelines for homework at school. We would like to conduct a review at both staff and parent level regarding this and make any necessary changes. Therefore, we would like to invite all parents that would like to have input on this discussion to our P&F Meeting. Discussions at this meeting will also include a presentation for parents on the results of the Insight SRC survey that was conducted earlier this year.
