Dear Parents and Guardians,

Making Jesus Real is truly embedded in this reflection from Richard Rohr. I hope you like it.

Another fantastic week comes to a close! Saturday night’s Trivia Night led by P & F President Simon Devlin was just awesome, with a great deal of fun had for an excellent cause. Thursday’s Winter sports Carnival was a great success, and today’s assembly led by 5D was a perfect start to the day.

What a remarkable seven days in the life of our community. The events have been fantastic, and would not have been so without the support and drive of a very large number of people. To all of you, for your contribution to the life of our community, our sincere thanks

Have a great weekend.

What do you do?

I provide independent advice on protecting the financial future of individuals, families and businesses through personal insurances such as Life, Permanent Disablement, Trauma and Income Protection. Too often I see families under-insured and unaware of how much they are actually covered for or need!

Whether it’s just a regular free review, a bit of an education lesson or help with claims I’m here to service your needs.

What was your favourite age at school and why?

16 was a good age – old enough to be free to do anything, but young enough to blame my brother!

What was the last picture you took with your phone?

Jed our dog – he’s always doing something that makes us laugh.

What is your perfect pizza?

Margherita with anchovies and mushrooms – nice and simple!

What cheers you up?

Going for a surf with or without the kids, but just being at the beach is always good.

What is your favourite movie?

Point Break – a favourite from the 80s

What was your favourite family holiday spot?

Spent a fantastic week at Belangan on Bali a few years ago with the family. Well away from everything with great food, great waves and just great family time!

What is your favourite family tradition?

Opening presents on the bed for anyone’s birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day with everyone including the dog!

Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken?

Dad’s the Boss!

Remember to think Holy Rosary first! Follow the links below to learn more....

What's happening with all the chairs and desks next to Sports Shed?

All the furniture was in classrooms that have now been re-imagined as 21st Century learning spaces. We have recently sourced a group of volunteers who collect furniture like ours and use it to furnish schools in East Timor. When their next container is ready to be filled, they will collect our furniture.

The furniture will really be well used over there. At this time there are still children in schools in East Timor who sit on the ground and rest the sheet of paper against the back of the child in front of them in order to be able to write. They really are looking forward to receiving our furniture.
