St Bernadette's Primary School
NEWSLETTER | TERM 3 | WEEK 2 | 29 July 2022
Message from Geordie
Good afternoon everyone,
I hope our students and families have had a smooth start to the term. On Thursday, our whole school were shaking in their boots, walking the plank and scouring the school for buried treasure to celebrate the Kindy Pirate Day and this morning our Year 5 classes entertained us with their NAIDOC Assembly and Dreamtime Story performance.
We have a lot happening in our Phys Ed lessons with Rugby clinics and preparation for our Cross Country Carnival well under way. Mrs Bowe and Mrs Watson have changed up the course for our Year 5 and 6 students this year which should be a heap of fun and provide some extra interest and challenge for our older students. It is also designed to make the finish line easier to manage and better for spectating. I am sure it will be a heap of fun.
We'd also like to welcome our new students who joined our Bernie's community this week.
After the success of our Mother’s Day festivities earlier in the term, our staff are currently organising a Father’s Day Breakfast on Friday the 2nd of September followed by the Pre Primary Assembly. We encourage our students to bring a significant man in their life to come down for a bacon and egg burger, shoot some hoops and have a chat before school. Please save the date and we will send more info out next week.
Many of you will have noticed that a lot of time, effort and resources have gone into getting the junior grassed area green, level, and healthy. This is working well, and we hope that with a few weeks of love, it should be back to full use soon.
Enjoy the weekend!
