Welcome to Week 9. It’s difficult to believe that this is the final Newsletter for Term 2. This term has been most productive in all areas of school life.
We look forward to Year 4 hosting our School Assembly this Friday, 29th June in the Mercy Hall at 9.30am. Everyone is welcome to come along.
The First Eucharist Celebration for our Year 3 students was a very special occasion. Thank you to everyone involved in making this Sacrament so special for the children and their families and to the choir children who sang so beautifully. You can view lots of photos on our website galleries page.
Last Friday our Band Ensemble performed, A Taste of Band, for our Year 3-6 students, to give a demonstration of what it’s like to be a band member. This was a wonderful performance and it showcased the benefits of being a member. Some of the students volunteered their thoughts on the benefits they have experienced learning an instrument. If your child is interested in joining the Band, please see Mrs Brown. Today the Band Ensemble performed at the Eisteddfod. They represented our school with pride and came 2nd in their division. A fantastic effort.
This Semester, Catholic Education Diocese of Wagga Wagga have introduced a new reporting system. Over the past weeks, our teachers have been finalising assessments and working through the new format, in order to report your child’s achievement. We anticipate that these reports will be released, via the Compass portal, at 5pm this afternoon.
Parent Teacher interviews are also booked via the Compass portal. These are being held next Monday & Tuesday. You would have received an email earlier in the year with your login & password details to access Compass which is our new system.
This evening our Senior Boys AFL team will compete in the local Final of the Paul Kelly Cup against Albury Public School. The match is at 5.30pm at Albury Sportsground.
Last Friday our students displayed great sportsmanship at the Deanery Athletics Carnival. Well done to all students and congratulations to those students who qualified for the Diocesan Carnival. This will be held on Tuesday 23rd July. (first day of Term for our students).
Last week, two of our students, Elisha Wild and Lily Harrison represented MacKillop at the NSW PSSA Basketball Carnival which was held here in Albury. The team completed the carnival as Runners Up with Elisha's efforts recognised through the coach’s award, and Lilly being selected in the NSW State team. A great effort girls.
