PADBURY CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL ONLINE
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
ENROL YOUR CHILD NOW
Due to our excellent reputation in the wider community, we are currently experiencing high enrolments.
If you have a little one at home that has not yet commenced at PCPS, I urge you to submit an application immediately to the school.
Some of our families have missed out on a position as they forgot to submit their enrolment form.
Admin staff are not aware if you have younger ones at home so an enrolment form is essential.
Even if your child is only a few months old, please submit an application form now.
Welcome to Two Term Two!
I have loved seeing the children's bright, smiley faces again each morning when I am out at the top Kiss and Ride doing a Meet and Greet.
The children are such a delight and I love having a little chat with them as they are getting out of the car.
The children have settled in exceptionally well after the holidays and are back into full routine which is great to see.
We started our term off with a reflective whole school ANZAC service on Wednesday, providing an opportunity for us all to remember and pray for the many Australians who fought and who lost their lives in wars and conflicts all over the world. We also prayed for all those who have returned home, many seriously affected physically and emotionally.

Father, Son and Daughter Camp
Back by popular demand is this year's EFL Father Son & Daughter camp night. As always the focus for the event will be on building stronger family relationships though camping in a safe and controlled environment. The event is open to all Year 1 and above school students and families. The use of electronic devices during the camp is discouraged to allow people to "switch off" and reconnect on a non-tech level.
The camp is designed to be inclusive and open to people of all levels of camping experience. In the interest of giving everyone a fair go as numbers are limited, please select one of the dates and book only one of the sessions when booking.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Nick on 0401 089 494 .
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
