St Bernadette's Primary School
NEWSLETTER | TERM 2 | WEEK 0 | 21 April 2023
Welcome back everyone,
I hope you have had a fun, safe and blessed Easter with your family and are refreshed and ready for all Term 2 has in store for us.
Our first day back for students is Wednesday the 26th of April and at 8:50am we will have our ANZAC Day commemorative ceremony led by our student leaders. We warmly welcome all families to attend the service as we come together as a school community to honour those who have served and those who continue to serve in Australia’s armed forces.
In Week 2 our Year 3 students will be celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation over in the Church with Father G. This is an important step in the faith journey of our students, and we thank Mrs Hilton and Mrs Schofield for their hard work in preparing them for the Sacrament.
In Weeks 3 and 4 our students will be participating in swimming lessons down at Aqua Jetty and on Friday the 12th of May, we will be celebrating our AMAZING Mothers and significant women with a special morning tea. Please look out for more info in the next few weeks.
Over the holidays there has been plenty of work going on behind the scenes with new reverse cycle air-conditioning installed in the Pre-Primary and Science classrooms, our regular turf and grounds maintenance and our architects have begun completing site surveys and planning for the next stage of our capital development. A huge thanks to Annie Redburn, Simon Cameron-Brown and Lewis Harrison for their organisation and for having our school looking so good for the start of term.
I look forward to another successful term and I will see you all on Wednesday morning!
