Message from the Principal
All of our students participated in our parish schools celebration of St Patrick’s Day, the feast day of our parish patron saint. Along with the students and staff from St. Brigid’s Ballan, we celebrated a liturgy with Bishop Paul Bird as our celebrant. Our Year 6 school leaders participated in the Liturgy.
All staff, students and attending families then went to Victoria Park, where we were able to socialise and play with students from our other parish school.
On Friday 19th March, our annual Twilight Sports was held at our school. This was a wonderful night, with all families and children socialising and having fun. The weather was perfect and I would sincerely like to thank our wonderful Parents and Friends Committee for catering with souvalaki's, pancakes and drinks. A special thank you to our master chef, Sinisha Pisak for preparing and cooking such delicious kebas.
I continue to be impressed by the many talents our parents have and their willingness to share them in our school community.
Our Interschool Athletics day will be held at Mason’s Lane Reserve in Bacchus Marsh on Monday. This has traditionally been a fantastic family day, where parents join with their children to support them in their athletic endeavours. Please bring along a picnic rug, camping chairs and snacks and lunch. We hope many parents will be able to come along and catch up with each other, as you enjoy the events throughout the day. Children participate in age groups with schools from around the district.
Have a great week.
Happy St Patrick's Day

Moorabool School Sports Day
Next Monday 29th March, our annual school sports day will be held at Mason's Lane Reserve in Bacchus Marsh. We ask that all children and their families are at the Reserve by 9am. A permission slip was sent home yesterday and we would appreciate if this could be returned by Wednesday.
This will be a great day for our parents and families to come along and join in the day. If parents attend the day, your children will be able to leave with you at the end of the day rather than returning to school. Please find attached a timetable of events for the day. We will also need some parent volunteers to assist with some of the activities. Please let us know if you are able to assist in any way.
Attached is the COVID Safe Plan for the day. It will be vital that we adhere to the requirements contained within this plan.
