With Sympathy

It is with sadness that I share that Labrini Ooi's father passed away after a very short illness . Please keep Labrini and her family in your thoughts and prayers.A reminder that the Mandarin performance that had been planned for next week has now been postponed.

Parent Thank You Breakfast

Please join us NEXT FRIDAY 13th December for a THANK YOU breakfast for our wonderful Parent Community who have assisted in any way throughout the year. Our volunteers are invaluable and this is a small gesture by staff to THANK YOU for all that you do for our school. This  includes being a member of a committee, attending parent teachers, joining us as a guest at Celebrate the Learning, responding to fundraisers, being a helping hand in classrooms and outside school ventures,  and  the partnership at home to make St Timothy's A GREAT PLACE TO BE.

Parent Committees 2020

A huge THANK YOU to our 

  • Parents & Friends
  • Sports Committee
  • School Advisory Committee

who have worked tirelessly to fund raise, organise and assist  with social events and support school programs and ventures. Your efforts, time and passion are truly appreciated. To continue to reap the benefits of strong committees :


Can you assist by joining our Parent Committees or offering to help run individual events/ activities if you are unable to attend meetings. 

Funds raised are help to fill the gap between Government funding, school fees and the cost of providing rich, engaging and varied opportunities for our children.

Social events build strong community relations both with adults and children.

We would love as many parents as possible involved in our committees. Please see Gail (office) Anne Maree , Carly ( P&F) or Simon ( Sports) if you are able to assist.

Many hands make light work.

Angel Box Gifts

The Year 6 Social Justice Leaders are requesting that each child provide a small gift for a child their own age and gender that we can forward on to St Vincent De Paul Christmas Appeal. Traditionally we put together 'ANGEL BOXES' to share a little of something we have with children less fortunate than our children. It would be greatly appreciated if you were able to donate something small to our Angel Box Christmas Appeal.

Dress Ups

If you have any old dress-ups that you no longer use at home please bring them into school.  We are creating a permanent dress-up box which can be used for our St Timothy's Photo Booth.  We will use this Photo Booth at the grade 6 graduation night. Donations could include any old scarfs, hats, glasses, ties, capes, wigs, beads etc We will have a box in the parent room marked Dress Up Donations.All donations will be greatly appreciated and cared for.

Garden Maintenance-Mulch & Watering

Once again I am seeking volunteers for the holiday period to water sections of our School Gardens over the summer break. 

A commitment to watering over a given week would meet the requirements for rebate on Maintenance Levy. 

If you can assist please contact Anne Maree or Gail.

Thank you

Swimming Fun Day

On Monday 16th December our Year 6  students have the opportunity to enjoy a special celebration at Nunawading Aquatic Centre. This is designed as an enjoyable morning to celebrate their time together at St Timothy's. More details to follow.

Athletics 2020

P-6 InterSchool Athletics

Next year we are looking at adding another opportunity for our children to join with other smaller catholic schools to conduct a combined athletics carnival.


It is hoped that five schools St Timothy's , St Mary Magdalen's, Holy Saviour, St Christopher's & St Bridget's would compete against each other.

The date is Tuesday March 3rd.

It would take place during the school day at a venue to be confirmed. Parents are invited to attend. Further details to follow.

Year 6 School & Family Dinner 7 pm

Hello everyone, it's nearing the end of the school year already!

Our grade 6 children will be transitioning into high school in the coming weeks.  It's a St Timothy's tradition that we hold a parent organised graduation dinner for the grade 6 children and parents which is held after the graduation mass (all school families are most welcome to attend the mass).   This year's Mass (6pm) and Dinner (7pm) at St Timothy's will be held on Tuesday December 17th.  This is a very special occasion for the children as they are surrounded by their families, friends and teachers as they celebrate and reflect on their primary school years and look forward to their new adventures in Secondary School.

 We would love to extend a warm invitation for the offer of assistance to all the families across the year levels.If you would like to assist we would love and appreciate in the coming weeks if you could please either donate a bottle of soft drink/juice or a bag of sweets.  All donations can be put in a marked box "graduation" in the Parents room.We will be sending out further details/requests in the coming weeks for offers for the salad/dessert or to help on the night.With love and gratitude,

 Grade 6 families.
