Welcome to Term 3 at Caroline Chisholm College and our second Chisholm Need to Know bulletin. As our Year 12s commence this final term of classroom lessons, we wish them all the very best and pray for their wellbeing and their success. On Monday 20 July, the staff were engaged in our Spirituality Day, where we were challenged to consider how we are all connected through God's divine love. As we work each day to manage our vastly changed world for our families and our students, we are called to focus on how we communicate God's love to those around us, especially as we teach our young people how to be people of love themselves.
Year 7-11 Reflection Day postponed
Please be advised that we have had to postpone the 7-11 Reflection Days scheduled for Week 2 Friday 31 July. We have been advised by CEDP that external venues for activities such as student or staff retreats still cannot be used and whilst we were hoping these restrictions may have eased, it has not been the case. At this stage we will be rescheduling these days for Years 7-10 in Term 4 to take place here at the college, and depending on whether the Senior Retreat is able to go ahead as planned, we may schedule a day for Year 11 if the retreat has to be cancelled.
Year 9 reports will be issued Monday 27 July and the Year 7 and 8 reports will be issued on Wednesday 29 July.
Year 11 Subject Selection timelines
A reminder that the Subject Selection interviews will be held on Tuesday 11 August, more information to come.
Year 8 Japanese Day, Thursday 30 July.
Students will spend the whole day participating in a variety of fun activities relating to Japanese culture. Students are to wear sports uniform. They will not require any equipment so they may just bring their tote bag. Students will have the opportunity to order a sushi lunch, prepared by local Japanese cooks (all prepared following COVID SAFE practices). Students in Year 8 may order sushi via the order form sent to them via email. Orders must be finalised and paid for by Monday 27 July.
Jackson House Initiative
Congo Aid was created to provide support and assistance in the financial, medical, and educational assistance for orphaned children in Eastern Congo. Over the years, Congo Aid has contributed to the building of a new orphanage, beds for the orphans, the purchase of a plot of land to help provide food, materials, and supplies for Mutwanzaki school. It has also provided emergency provisions when needed. Together, we can make a difference to this community by donating and/or getting involved in next week's event: Jackson Chocolate Coin Toss. This exciting event will occur on both Tuesday and Thursday next week on the COLA at recess and lunch. $2 = five throws. There will also be orange awareness ribbons on sale for $1. Please encourage your daughter to bring in coins next week to show their support for Congo Aid.
