All Souls Day
This year our students and teachers actively participated in a class reflection liturgy of the word to mark this very important day in our liturgical calendar. The children opened their hearts to hear the word of God, share prayers and listen to the messages of the Lord in music and song. As part of the liturgy the children were able to remember a loved one and celebrate the life they now have in Heaven. The children scribed the name of a special person on individual crosses. These crosses are now placed in the administration building for all our community to reflect on those who have gone before us and pray for their continued happiness and love, embraced in the protection of our Lord.
Our exciting Math-a-thon week will begin in a few days time. This is a very exciting initiative and fundraiser for our children and community. Not only will the children consolidate important skills in Mathematics, they will also raise money to continue building our technology used for enhancing the learning agenda at St. Andrew’s. I wish to thank the parent community for your continued support.
Last week the P&F executive and myself met via a Zoom conference to discuss the events planning for the remainder of this term. The team have been working very hard to organise a Christmas raffle and Christmas pop up store for our children and community. The raffle prizes are plentiful and the range of Christmas goods will definitely excite our children as they shop for that special present for their loved ones.
Further information will be sent home regarding both exciting events. I wish to publicly thank the P&F for all their good works and dedication in building our great faith, learning community.
Transition for our newest Community members

All our new kindergarten children will participate in our orientation program on 3rd of December commencing at 9am. I am looking forward to meeting our new families and children on this day.
