Garden Maintenance-Mulch & Watering

Once again I am seeking volunteers for the holiday period to water sections of our School Gardens over the summer break. 

A commitment to watering over a given week would meet the requirements for rebate on Maintenance Levy. 

If you can assist please contact Anne Maree or Gail.

Thank you

Firemen Visit

The Prep, 1 & 2 children had a visit from the Vermont Fire Station firemen this week to hear some very important Fire Safety messages. In this time of summer and our current high Fire Dangers, it is very important to ensure that our children are aware of fire safety procedures. They also need to be comfortable with seeing the firemen/women all suited up in their protection gear.

Also at this time we pray for all those communities affected by our devastating bush fires throughout Australia

Tennis Clinics

As a part of the Sporting Schools Program, our Year Foundation (P) -6 children are able to have tennis coaching from Vermont South Tennis        (We Are Tennis) over the next 3 weeks.

Two coaches Jess and Shaun work closely with each group to develop skills. There is an Open Day this weekend 23rd  November (see flyer in Community section).

We are grateful for the funding we receive in order to provide this additional opportunity for our children.

Swimming Fun Day

On Monday 16th December our Year 6  students have the opportunity to enjoy a special celebration at Nunawading Aquatic Centre. This is designed as an enjoyable morning to celebrate their time together at St Timothy's. More details to follow.

Athletics 2020

P-6 InterSchool Athletics

Next year we are looking at adding another opportunity for our children to join with other smaller catholic schools to conduct a combined athletics carnival.


It is hoped that four schools would compete against each other.

The date is Tuesday March 3rd.

It would take place during the school day at a venue to be confirmed. Parents are invited to attend. Further details to follow.

Year 6 School & Family Dinner 7 pm

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.
