Dear Parents, 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our school fete. While the weather wasn’t too kind, attendance was steady and there was plenty of fun. We are very grateful for the many of you who volunteered countless hours of your time in making this  a success. An event such as this just doesn’t happen overnight so thank you.

Work on our Sensory Garden will commence during the first week of December. This is to be constructed on part of the Zone 4 area. We are most excited and can’t wait for the finished product. At this stage scheduled work will be finished before the end of the school year.

Staffing for 2020 has been finalised. There are a few changes taking place in our school community. We welcome three new staff; Corey Miller, Morgan Gallagher and Elecia Turner.  We also welcome back Cindy Whitfield who spent 12 months at St Anne’s and Kylie James who is returning part time after being on Maternity Leave.

Year 2 picnic with Fr Joel 

The Year 2 picnic with Fr Joel was a great success. It was lovely to see so many of the children with their families and teachers relaxing and catching up last Thursday. Fr Joel and the kids had lots of fun playing soccer! There was also a great game of Lollipop happening! Thank you for taking the time to meet and build community spirit.

First Reconciliation

The Year 2 children received the Sacrament of Reconciliation last night in St. Pat's Church for the first time and thank you to the children and parents who participated. Please keep them in your prayers.
