Many thanks again to the wonderful Mr Davis, Mr Munro, Mr Cogger, Rachael Davies, Larissa Shaw, Leanne Wallis, Jaine Chow, and all the hard working P&F Mums who organised the stalls, raffles and cooked lunches.

To all the parents who made the big effort to come along - THANK YOU and it was really terrific to have you join us.

Congratulations to all those children who performed so well - we are all very happy for you.

Mums and Dads - you have absolutely fantastic kids and it is such a pleasure to hear them support each other, care for each other, celebrate each other and generally get involved in a day like this one!

Grandparents- it was really special to have you join us - thank you for making the effort to come along.

We hope you all enjoyed the day. We will get a movie of photos done next week!

Mr Davis will post all the results next week on our website.

Despite the drizzly weather, THANK YOU all so much for coming along and supporting your wonderful children, teachers, EA's and our school, at Wednesday night's 2021 Term 3 OPEN NIGHT.

For your presence, your good humour, your positive outlook, and your interest ...

For the way you listened, asked good questions, affirmed and encouraged your children ...

For understanding that real learning is more about the process than the product...

Thank you.

We hope you enjoyed the opportunity and if you haven't had time to give your teacher some positive feedback, we would really appreciate it if you would do this before we break for holidays. A little encouragement and gratitude goes a long way and acknowledges the time and extra effort that staff go amidst a busy term.

De Vialar House Day

This week saw students from DeVialar House share with students from years 1-6 the significance of this day on the calendar. Each of our Houses is named after a significant person from the Catholic faith tradition - in this case, our school's patron saint, St Emilie.

You will have noticed that each house flag also bears a motto - De Vialar's is DEEP DEVOTEDNESS. St Emilie was devoted to a God she loved and spent her life championing for children and the poor.

Thank you to staff and students for your presentation, for your House chants and for the items that you have delivered to your charity - well done!

Prayer for Parents of Confirmation Candidates

Lord, You send out Your Spirit to touch the hearts of all people, so that they may believe in

You and in Jesus whom You sent.

Look kindly on all candidates for Confirmation as they listen to Your voice. Open their hearts to Your Spirit and bring to fulfilment the good work that You have begun in them.

As parents, we are role models and guides, make each of us an instrument of Your love.

Teach us to appreciate what is holy in others, and to be patient with what we do not understand. Deepen our faith in the Gospel and help us to pass it on by our good example.

We pray that You will continue to guide and sustain us on our journey.

Through Christ our Lord,


Confirmation Masses this weekend

We wish all Confirmation candidates from the school and the parish all the best for the upcoming Sacrament this weekend.

The children have been well prepared and their challenge now, as it is for us all, is to go out and LIVE THE GOSPEL, drawing on the strength of the Holy Spirit.

School social workers focus on the student in the school environment and work collaboratively with principals and teachers to minimise the impacts of personal, family and school difficulties and, where possible, remove any barriers to learning.

With students as their focus, school social workers provide consultancy, advice and support to principals, teachers and other school staff and to families, so that they can best meet the needs of individual and groups of children and young people. There is a strong emphasis on individual student and family counselling and support.

This service is an amazing opportunity for kids, staff and families and one we have wanted in our school for some time.

Please find below the Parent Referral and Consent Form to access our School Social Worker.

You are asked to read the procedure carefully and also note that Kylie only works two days a week. While she will do her very best to accomodate all family referrals, patience may be required as she prioritises her case load and allows time for observation visits, classroom support and playground involvement.
