Queen of Apostles Feast Day
Tomorrow, we celebrate the feast of Queen of Apostles. We have had a team of staff working out a plan for the day and deciding on some fantastic activities for the students. The day will start with the Year 5 class leading us at Mass. Mass will start at 9am and parents and friends are welcome to join us. Each class will then rotate through 7 activities where they will learn about the history of our school, complete some craft activities and have some fun. I’m looking forward to what promises to be a great day.
Confirmation will take place this Sunday 5th June at a special 10.30am Mass in the church.
Confirmation is one of the Initiation Sacraments of the Catholic Church and helps the candidates to be united more firmly with Christ.
Please keep our Year 6 candidates in your prayers during this time.
Year 3 Assembly
Next Friday morning (June 10) we have our first assembly of the year that will be presented by the Year 3 class. I know Ms Lesque and the Year 3’s have been working hard and it promises to be a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing our Year 3 parents and friends at the hall next Friday morning.
It is still vitally important that parents and caregivers inform the school if their child tests positive for COVID-19.
Parents and caregivers can inform the school of their child’s positive or negative COVID result via this LINK - https://cewa-collections.powerappsportals.com/COVID-19-Self-Reporting-Form/
The information will go directly to me.
If a positive result is recorded via a RAT test it must also be registered on the WA Health RAT register website:
Please do not underestimate the importance of informing us of a positive COVID case. Your actions will ensure the risk to others is minimised and that we do our very best to limit the spread of the virus across our community.
Interschool Cross Country
Well done to our interschool cross country team for their awesome performances last Friday. Each student showed great Queenies spirit and gave their all!
Queenies scored the 3rd highest tally of points on the day (6th place for the shield when school population size considered). We had runners in the top 10 in each race. Special mention goes to Sofia in Year 4 and Bryn in Year 6 who both placed 2nd in their races and took home silver medals.
Thank you to Mr Ryan and Ms Lesque for accompanying the team, and to the many parent helpers and spectators for their support in cheering on our team. It was a wonderful atmosphere and our school was well represented on the day.
If you were there and have any photos you would like to share, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
