St Bernadette's Primary School
NEWSLETTER | TERM 4 | WEEK 6 | 18 November 2022
Message from Geordie
Good afternoon everyone,
I hope you have all had a great week. Unfortunately, I have had one of ‘those weeks’ and have been out of school a fair bit with CEWA Leadership Days and our Principal Association AGM. I did, however, make it to our Year 5 Leadership Day on Thursday which was a great opportunity to reflect on Student Leadership in our school.
Our Year 5 students participated in a range of activities that focused on:
- The qualities and attributes of a good leader
- What Jesus taught us about Leadership
- Personal strengths and the strengths of others
- The power of positivity and having a growth mindset
A huge thanks to Mrs Deshon, Mrs Cosgrove, Miss Pedler and Mr Hilton for their organisation and planning. It was a great day!
I hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to being back at school on Monday!
Cards and notes to post in the Pixie Post Box
which will be outside the Library from Monday!
For those unsure of how this works, in a nutshell:
- Children, who wish to give their classmates, teacher’s and friends a Christmas card, can fill their cards in at home – making sure they place the recipient’s name and class onto the front of the card. This is for all years – Pre-K to Year 6.
- Children bring their cards to school and place them into the post box which is found outside the library.
- Pixies will sort the mail. (Santa has allowed this from the normal present making!!)
- At the end of the day the post will be delivered to the classrooms and teachers will be able to give out the mail.
We ask that you do not place candy canes or other lollies to the envelopes.
$10 MKR Recipe Books & Bernie's Garden Sale
Year 6 chefs have been busy in the kitchen cooking up a storm and some tasty dishes for the MKR competition and we now have the MKR recipe book available at the Bargain price of $10. An ideal Christmas present for family and friends!
Mrs Cairns and her garden gnomes will be having a special garden sale in weeks 7 and 8. Among the usual garden produce and worm wee on sale will be some beautiful succulent plants and citronella potpourri. Some more great Christmas gift ideas! Bernie's garden sale takes place on Friday between 2.50 and 3.15pm. All proceeds go back to Bernie's garden!
The IGA excursion had to be cancelled for a second time due to the weather but the lovely gentlemen from the IGA decided that as we couldn't go to them they would come to us! They arrived laden with goodies and spoke to the children about healthy eating habits and where foods come from. Everyone enjoyed the incursion so much and we are very grateful to the Port Kennedy IGA for coming to the school!
