Term 2, Week 5 School Newsletter
News from the Principal
Last Thursday morning we hosted a Biggest Morning Tea and every Cuppa certainly did count! $1,000 was raised and it will be donated as vital funds for those impacted by cancer.
I would like to thank the families for their wonderful support with monetary donations, scrumptious catering, raffle prizes and for the set up and pack up on the day. Coincidentally, it was also National Volunteer week with the 2022 theme of Better Together. We certainly witnessed a great example of that at our morning tea.
"Volunteering brings people together; it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone".
We pray for Angela, Aidan, Macy, Rose and Elle, as they continue on their faith journey and prepare for the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Confirmation.
Last week the Year 3 and 5 students took part in NAPLAN testing. Our teachers would like to thank these students for their hard work and for doing their best.
Our Year 6 students participated in a leadership day with Year 6 students from other rural schools. It was very worthwhile for all students.
We warmly welcome our new student, Charlotte to the Year 2 class. We also welcome her parents, Nick and Stephanie into St Patrick's school community.
The Year 3 and 4 class will be participating in their 1 night school camp at Anglesea on Thursday and Friday. There are many fabulous activities organised for the students to participate in. We look forward to sharing many photos with you on class dojo.
I wish you all a great week.
2022 Biggest Morning Tea
Over the athletics season, Ollie Peoples qualified to compete at the Stawell Gift over the Easter weekend.
It was an amazing experience with Ollie racing against kids twice his age in the 100 metre sprint and the 400 metre sprint.
Ollie started on a time handicap of 18 seconds in the 400 metres (this is determined by region and state results through the season). 8 heats with 10 competitors.
He finished 3rd in his heat and 12th overall in a field of 80 kids, ranging from 9-16 years. He missed out on the final by 2 places, having an amazing day and experience.
We are very proud of Ollie and his wonderful athletic achievements.
