Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning,
and ever shall be,
world without end.
Message form the Principal
We have celebrated Science Week with a raft of interesting and fun class activities and a spectacular science incursion by Supersonic Science.
Our 3D printers have arrived - these are a great addition to our resources and will no doubt be of great interest to the children.
Science is an important component of our school's mission to develop lifelong learners and critical thinkers who ask questions, discern and problem solve.
God Bless and stay safe.
Artist of the week
The Artist of the Week is Kara from Year 6. Her favourite thing about her Pop Art Self Portrait is the jacket. Kara used an app called Ibis Paint X to draw her artwork. Her favourite colour is black and she likes to sketch at home with pencils.

Parish Information - From Monsignor
Happy Fathers’ Day to all school Fathers for 6th September. I feel particularly providential that Fathers Day follows so soon after the 46th Anniversary of my Ordination.
I hope the children all do something special for their fathers.
Please find attached the momento sketch and reflection for my 46th Anniversary.
God bless you all
Monsignor Brian O’Loughlin
