2020 Term 2 Week 7 - 11 June 2020

From the Principal - Mrs Baird

Feast of the Sacred Heart - 19th of June 

A letter will be going home to parents this week with information regarding our celebration of this very important feast day.  As the weather becomes cooler and we brace ourselves for the winter chill, it is a good time for us to reflect on the many people who do not have warm beds or clothes to get them through these harsh months.  We will be working with St Vincent De Paul to provide much needed supplies for our community in need.  As Monsignor Ron shared with us this week in the Church bulletin; 

The life of God is all about community. If we wish to have a relationship with our God, we need to be committed to a life of unity with our God and a life of unity with each other.

A way to build community is to serve our community in a way that brings to life the love of our God.  What better way to show this love than through charitable giving to those in need.  

The children will begin the day in prayer in their classrooms and we invite our parents to donate items or a gold coin.  I thank you in advance for your continued generosity. 

Morning:  Church Drop off Zone

Can I begin by sincerely thanking parents for their patience and support following the school  morning drop off procedure.   

The presence of the school Leadership Team in the morning has made a difference and the process, when followed, does work in reducing wait time and traffic backing up on Breakfast Road.  

I appreciate the positive feedback from many of our families regarding the presence of the leadership team assisting with safety and traffic flow.  In the coming weeks we will pull back on our presence at the Church pergola and hopefully parents will continue to follow the processes in place. 

Please also be mindful of opening your car door when you park on the street. The crossing supervisor has noticed that on many occasions buses have had to swerve to miss car doors that have opened.  Once again a near miss or possible accident could have resulted from this act. 

Kindergarten Enrolments 2021

To date, many acceptance letters have been sent to families this year and we are in the process of interviewing.  If you feel your child is ready for school in 2021, I encourage you to please lodge an enrolment form ASAP.  We are already over three quarters full.  

School Fees

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to gather as a whole school but we will be gathering in our classrooms to pray a Liturgy of the Word on:


During the liturgy there will be a time for students to bring forward donations for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.  If you are able to help please send your gift on or before Friday June 19 (Week 8) so they can be part of the class liturgies. 


Below is a list of items that are most needed by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in helping families.

Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Long Life Milk, Cordial, Juice/Drinks,

Cereal, Pasta Noodles, 2 minute noodles, Rice, Cup-a-Soups,

Monetary donations can also be made. There will be a collection bucket in each grade and these funds will be forwarded to the Society as they assist those in immediate financial need.
