Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Spirit of Jesus as evidenced in our Making Jesus Real, has as its focus deepening our relationship with him, through our actions. I have a couple of lovely stories later in the newsletter on this theme.

Ant bites aside I think it is fair to say that last Saturday’s Family Fun Night - was a lot of fun! A good number turned out and were well fed, watered and entertained. Thanks to P&F President Anita and her posse for such a great evening - long may they continue!

Respect for neighbours continues to be evidenced by people parking in the correct places. Thank you. Such actions are good for the respect of our community.

Social distancing continues as it is currently. Opportunities to engage with classes - particularly junior primary classes - increase as rosters are opened up. This has taken place already in some classes, and will take place later in Pre kindy, Kindy and Preprimary once children are well settled.

Our Year Six gang are on camp next week. We wish them and the staff attending a fantastic and rewarding experience.

It feels funny saying this as we have only just returned, but - have a great long weekend!
