Term 3, Week 4 School Newsletter.
News from the Principal
I would like to congratulate Angela, Aidan, Rose, Macy and Elle on receiving the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist at recent weekend Masses. The children joined in a wonderful celebration with Fr. Justin Driscoll. Thank you to Therese Winter and Elizabeth McKew for preparing the children so well and co-ordinating the Masses.
We offer our thoughts and prayers to Fr. Justin and his family on the loss of his much loved brother, Tony Driscoll. Tony was the Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor and served on the Shire Council since October, 2012. Cr. Driscoll is remembered for his dedication and integrity within his community.
This week the Foundation pupils celebrated 100 days of school. The pupils and Miss Mac dressed as 100 years olds to mark their milestone. Students took part in a range of activities based on the number 100. Congratulations and thank you to all parents, who went over and above with amazing costumes. It was a fabulous day!
I once again ask that all children bring over clothes for outside play. Old and loose clothes over the uniform certainly protects the uniform.
A reminder that FRIDAY 12th August and MONDAY 15th August are school closure days.
Our Book Week Parade will take place on Thursday 25th August from 9:15 am to 10:15 am. All families are invited to join with us and we will have a complimentary coffee van onsite.
