Congratulations to Sarah, Peter, Edmund (Foundation) and Basil Sheehan on the birth of their daughter and sister, Clover, this morning.
Our sympathy is extended to Jess, Heath, Ivy (Yr 1) and Ruby (Yr 1) Condon on the death of Jess’ father last week in Brisbane.
All classes will be attending mass tomorrow at 10.00am at St Patrick’s Church for the Feast of the Assumption.
We keep the children from our parish in our prayers this week as they prepare for the sacrament of Eucharist, which they will receive for the first time this Sunday at the 10.30am mass.
Thank you to the families for their preparation of the children and to Peter Sanderson for his support and planning of the Eucharist mass.
Health and Wellbeing day
We had a fun and relaxing Health and Wellbeing Day last Friday, despite the weather forcing some changes. Yoga, strength training, dance and games ensured children and staff were able to focus on strategies to assist their ongoing wellbeing. The launch of our student leaders’ book swap was very popular and we hope both children and adults will take advantage of this. Thank you to Antonia Balmer and our student leaders for their organisation of the day.
We received the exciting news last week that our school won the Aggregate Award for the Year 6 and under section of this year’s Warrnambool Eisteddfod. This is the first time St Patrick’s has won this award. Congratulations to all our Eisteddfod participants this year who contributed such brilliant performances.
Special congratulations to Maggie Carmichael, who won the overall individual Aggregate Award and Lila Killen, who placed third. A wonderful achievement for both students!
Thank you again to Karrinjeet Singh Mahil and Juliana Wakely who worked with the children on their performances.
