Dear parents and caregivers,

Welcome to Spring!! How blessed are we to have had such beautiful weather this week! The students have thoroughly enjoyed spending lots of time outside taking advantage of the weather!

The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is one of my favourite sacraments as it adds another layer for our students on their spiritual journey. The masses over the last two weekends were lovely and the students all looked reverent and holy. Thank you to Mrs Curtis for preparing the students so well.

On Thursday, we celebrated all our dad’s, grandparents and father figures with a wonderful breakfast and coffee morning on the grassed area outside the Library followed by a fabulous Year Three Father’s Day Assembly. I really enjoyed watching the dads and grandfathers talking, laughing and interacting with their children and hearing comments along the lines of ‘that was the great morning’ was magical. A big thank you to our hardworking P&F committee for organising the breakfast and coffee van.

Next Thursday is our Faction Athletics Carnival. There is nothing better than a colourful sports carnival with lots of cheering and participation. Please adhere to the guidelines for the carnival, outlined below. Thank you to Mrs Clarkson for organising this big event. The carnival will commence at 9am.

As the weather warms up, please make sure that you have labelled your child’s jumper so that it can returned to them if left on the oval or in the undercover area. A couple of jumpers have been misplaced, therefore, I ask that you check your child’s bag just in case these have accidentally gone home with the wrong person. There is some lost property in the office if you are missing any uniforms.

A reminder to all parents and caregivers to please use the Kiss and Drive for drop off and pick up and not parking on the verge outside the main entrance gates. The safety of our students is very important, and they should only be exiting cars in the Kiss and Drive area not onto the main road. If you are using the main entrance for, drop off and pick up, please ensure you are adhering to the road rules and parking arrangements.

Finally, wishing all our fathers, heavenly fathers, grandfathers and father figures a lovely Father’s Day for Sunday. I hope you are thoroughly spoilt by your family in every way!

God bless

Rebecca Clarke

Congratulations to all the Year Four students on receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion at various masses over the weekend. May this special milestone deepen your faith and bring you abundant blessings throughout your journey of spiritual growth.

St Augustine

Saint Augustine has wrote many books and letters discussing various things and matters not only about faith but also about everyday affairs.
