Remembrance Day

We Remember

On 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War. From the summer of 1918, the five divisions of the Australian Corps had been at the forefront of the allied advance to victory. Beginning with their stunning success at the battle of Hamel in July, they helped to turn the tide of the war at Amiens in August, followed by the capture of Mont St Quentin and Pèronne, and the breaching of German defences at the Hindenburg Line in September. By early October the exhausted Australians were withdrawn from battle. They had achieved a fighting reputation out of proportion to their numbers, but victory had come at a heavy cost. They suffered almost 48,000 casualties during 1918, including more than 12,000 dead.

In the four years of the war more than 330,000 Australians had served overseas, and more than 60,000 of them had died. The social effects of these losses cast a long shadow over the postwar decades.

Each year on this day Australians observe one minute’s silence at 11am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

At St Timothy's we stop and take the time to recognise the sacrifices made by participating in a service and completing a range of learning activities to help children better understand the significance of the day.

Celebrating our Walk to School Breakfast

An AMAZING morning on Thursday as staff cooked up a wonderful breakfast of Pancakes, Waffles served with mixed berries and ice-cream to celebrate the end of our Walk to School program. There were a lot of happy faces and contented stomachs. A HUGE thank you to staff for all their hard work to provide this VERY SPECIAL  breakfast for the children.

Hello everyone, it's nearing the end of the school year already!

Our grade 6 children will be transitioning into high school in the coming weeks.  It's a St Timothy's tradition that we hold a parent organised graduation dinner for the grade 6 children and parents which is held after the graduation mass (all school families are most welcome to attend the mass).   This year's Mass (6pm) and Dinner (7pm) at St Timothy's will be held on Tuesday December 17th.  This is a very special occasion for the children as they are surrounded by their families, friends and teachers as they celebrate and reflect on their primary school years and look forward to their new adventures in Secondary School.

 We would love to extend a warm invitation for the offer of assistance to all the families across the year levels.If you would like to assist we would love and appreciate in the coming weeks if you could please either donate a bottle of soft drink/juice or a bag of sweets.  All donations can be put in a marked box "graduation" in the Parents room.We will be sending out further details/requests in the coming weeks for offers for the salad/dessert or to help on the night.With love and gratitude,

 Grade 6 families.
