Semester 2 Report and Snapshot of Learning Books

Today your child brought home their Semester 2 School Report and their Snapshot of Learning book. The Snapshot of Learning book is a sample of work completed over Term 3 & Term 4. We congratulate the children on their effort and achievement over the year. Please feel free to make an appointment to see your child's teacher should you need anything explained in report or Snapshot of Learning book. 

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.

Onesies & Animal Costumes

Our Production for 2020 is Go Noah. We are already putting out requests for anyone that may have animal costumes ( e.g onesie)  of animals on the ark that they would be prepared to loan to school for the production. A variety of sizes would be fantastic. Please let the office know if you can assist.

Swimming Fun Day

Athletics 2020

P-6 InterSchool Athletics

Athletics carnival.


 St Timothy's , St Mary Magdalen's, Holy Saviour, & St Bridget's will compete colour against colour. (Due to different sizes of schools)

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.


As part of our focus on Science, this term, in STEAM, P-2 students observed the effects of heat and cold on common food items.  They hung bags containing a cut-up apple, a whole banana, chocolate chips, cheese and a slice of bread in the classroom windows and placed the same bagged items in the staffroom refrigerator.  Students made predictions and observed weekly changes over a month. You might like to ask your child about the effects of light and cold on these food items! The children also experimented with liquids and solids by observing the effects of freezing on fruit juice sticks.  They made a hypothesis that linked chocolate to the fruit sticks because they both have properties that can change form a liquid into a solid and then from a solid into a liquid form.
