To all of our wonderful families who sent in a note, an email, a delicious treat or more to celebrate the hard work of all our staff on World Teacher’s Day …
Your thoughtfulness and kindness was very, very much appreciated!
This term Pre-Primary Blue are learning about ‘Reuse, Reduce and Recycle’.
We made recycled flower pots out of milk bottles and other recycled items.
We spent the first week of Term Four designing our pot and the second week creating them.
Once we were finished, we poured soil and planted a seedling.
Each day when we are at school, we need to remember to water it!
We also talked about the different ways that we can take care of the earth. Some of our responses were:
“I can turn off the tap when I brush my teeth” – Quade
“I can recycle the bottles and I will put them into the recycling bins” – Octavius
“When I sort out my clothes and I will give some to people who do not have many clothes” – Anika
The children are encouraged to reuse, reduce and recycle when they are at home.
Please take a photo of your child showing the 3 R’s at home and bring it to school so they can talk about how they are taking care of the Earth.
We would really love to see as many families come along as possible to what should be a really fun night!

Mrs Cogger accumulates a lot of lost property. Most of it is left in the Multi Purpose Room or she finds it left in the undercover area where the children eat their recess and lunch. You can find the Lost Property box just outside the door to MPR. There are currently a few hats and jackets without names in the box. There is also a HUGE collection of small containers. These containers are mostly used for ‘Crunch and Sip’. Here is a photo of the collection that has accumulated already and it’s only the end of week 3. I will leave these at the reception with Mrs Reid. If you recognise an item that should be in your kitchen cupboard please drop into reception and claim it.
Congratulations to all our Year Six students on receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation on the weekend and to you their families who continue to nurture and guide them on their faith and life journey!
We all know that it isn’t always easy however our task as parents is to continue doing our very best to model what it is to be “a Christ follower” in our everyday conversations, choices and actions. In this way our children are able to more clearly understand the inextricable link between faith and life.
When we invest daily time, offer good advice and model respectful and morally courageous choices, we are setting our children up to more confidently face a world that presents so many conflicting and confusing messages.
Drawing upon the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our daily life helps us to stay ‘on track’ and to ultimately find peace and contentment, as well as the strength and courage we need to more confidently make the difficult choices along the way.
We wish you all the best in the years ahead, helping your child to learn to lean on their faith often and to go into the world ready to be the hands and feet of Jesus!
A special thank you to our staff and to our parish catechists for all their hard work in supporting families in preparing the children throughout the year and for attending one of the masses over the weekend.
