Hi Everyone,

More food for thought on the journey. I trust you enjoyed a long long weekend! Our Staff development day on Tuesday was really well received. Led by Brendan Spillane we continued to develop our focus on self realisation as it relates to our own well being. It was a powerful day, with a great response from our staff. These days are important to us. They provide the opportunity to cover many areas of interest - personal and professional.

Wednesday’s Sacrament meeting was well attended. Father Greg Donovan made a thought provoking presentation relating to all of the sacraments. The content was great, and parents with different children involved in different sacraments appreciated the one meeting. Children can enrol for the sacraments at the masses this Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

To the parents who joined their children at today's Year Five Mass, thank you very much for coming along. Thank you to those who had time to stay for morning tea in the parish centre afterwards, and also to Carli Woolfrey who organised the morning tea.

Our prayers and best wishes go with our Year Six children going to the Swan Valley on camp next week, and to our children in Years Three and Five undertaking NAPLAN assessments. Whatever the endeavour we encourage all our children to do their best!

Finally, farewell to Sharon Crump. Sharon has been in charge of our front desk for only a few weeks. We thank Sharon for her contribution for the busy start of term, and wish her success and happiness for the road ahead. Thank you Sharon.

Have a great weekend

Parking #2

A reminder where to park. Please check the map below. We are getting some flak on some parking practices alleged to have happened, in particular:

From one of our churchgoers:

  • people using the angled parking bays in front of the Church. A number of regulars, some elderly, come early to Church to recite the rosary, and park there. Please leave these bays clear.

From a resident of Huntriss Road:

  • Parking on verge where it is clearly signed to not do that

  • Parking in the no standing spots where it is clearly marked

  • Parking in the bus zones (I saw the bus driver of the 412 stop his bus this morning in the middle of the road to let out kids and then go write offenders a ticket)

These rules are for kid’s safety and the free, safe and unimpeded passage of road users. I have also informed the Stirling council of my concerns. I hope they conduct a fine blitz to reinforce your anticipated communication to these drivers.

I don’t think any of us can argue with any of these points. There is plenty of parking available around school as evidenced by the map and we ask everybody to be mindful and honour the expectations we have.

Thank you for your support.

A short week but we still managed to celebrate International Women’s Day, Australian Reading Hour and start the Junior Chess Tournament!! If you didn’t get a chance on Thursday, try to fit an hour of reading in over the weekend.

Just a reminder that the library opens daily (except Monday) at 8.30am and parents and students are welcome to pop in between 8.30 and 8.45am. If you need to see me for a library or pastoral matter outside of 8.30-3pm, please email me to make an appointment, so that I can help you without interruptions and also so that you aren’t waiting for me to finish another parent, student or teacher meeting. Thanks for your understanding.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Butson
