Week 3 Term 3

Image
Hi guys,

Welcome back to week 3 and what a wet and chilly start we are having! I foolishly planted some veggies in the garden over the weekend, being the novice gardener I am, and didn't check the upcoming weather forecast and didn't see the deluge of rain we are about to receive this week. Here's hoping the sun comes out a little to give them a tiny bit of hope.

NEWS JUST IN...
I just want to inform you, that as of Week 5 Alison will be replacing Mrs Murphy in Year 3 while she is on leave for the rest of term 3. I will be working full-time in Year 6, up until the end of Term 3.


WEEK 2 REMINDERS
Here are some reminders for the week ahead:

LETTERS FOR RETREAT DAY
Just a reminder that your letter for your child is due at the end of this week. These will be given out on the Retreat Day where your child will take time to reflect on and respond to these. Further details about what to include in the letter are in Week 1's blog post.


CONFIRMATION RETREAT DAY

Good afternoon,

Thank you to everyone who attended last nights' Confirmation Workshop. It was so lovely to see you able to share in some special one on one time with your child. The smiles and giggles that you shared among yourselves was priceless.

BUT...now to more pressing matters. This week we celebrate the wonderful TOBY DELANE, who received our Merit Award this week.

He was an absolute stand out at camp, showing many of our school values. Congratulations Toby!

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone.

Week 2 Term 3

Image
Good afternoon parents,

Well...now that's how to start a term! Camp did not disappoint, we were left shattered but boy we had fun. And when I didn't think it was possible for this class to get any closer, we managed to strengthened the bonds we had already formed and pushed ourselves outside our paradigm, challenging ourselves and ignoring those negative thoughts that often take over.



All students have been shown the link on OneNote to access the photos taken by the teachers at camp. Please ask them to show you, so you can peruse the images taken.

I am sorry there is no learning update in this blog...we have began our new units, however there are some important messages that need to get to you NOW...so I promise next week a full update on our learning.



REMINDERS - WEEK 2 

IMPORTANT: PARENT/CHILD CONFIRMATION WORKSHOP

Term 3 Week 1: We Are On!

Image
Good afternoon,

I hope this blog finds you all well, rested and ready for an incredibly busy term ahead.

I trust that you have all seen the recent Camp email with a few reminders for tomorrow morning. I know the kids are excited and tragically so am I! I don't think I will sleep tonight. I have been having flash backs of old camps in the past, when I was jumping off skinny poles 15 metres high and hoping that age hasn't made me a chicken! My next job is to pack but I have never been the lightest of packers, so don't laugh when you see a larger suitcase tomorrow(many layers will be required to stay warm!). Please email if you have any further questions, as I will be on my emails most of today.


CONFIRMATION PREPARATION
In the coming weeks, the blog will be full of Confirmation updates as we are currently set to celebrate our Confirmation at the end of week 4. As part of the preparation we will be having a Confirmation Retreat Day, where the students will reflect on themselves an…

What a day!!

Good evening,

I want to congratulate all the students who ran today, it was a great effort by all. So many people commented on how well the Yr 6's ran and the positive attitude they brought to this event.

Well done to Oliver, Jasper, Axton and Ed on receiving a ribbon and representing the boys well. Congrats to Ruby, Taylah, Savannah, Zali and Annabelle who finished the top 4 in the girl's event.




MERIT AWARD: Next I want to congratulate COOPER DE CHIERA on receiving a Merit Award. Such an incredible role-model amongst his peers, who is always looking out for others, trying his best and achieving many great things! Watch him receive his Merit below.




STAR CITIZEN: Lastly I want to celebrate our Star Citizen for this week...and it couldn't have gone to a more deserving person. This young lady has the best attitude of gratitude. She is so appreciative for what she has in her life and what she receives. I know that she is highly respected amongst her peers because of her kind and…
