PREP ENROLMENTS FOR 2015
In Term 4, we look forward to welcoming our 2015 prep children for an orientation day. We will have three prep classes next year with only a few spaces left across the year level. Please contact the office if you have not confirmed your prep place for next year.
Well done to our Year 6 singers who performed at the Choral Festival this week at Booval. This festival showcases the musical talent of our students amongst their peers and the St Joseph’s Team did us proud. Sincere appreciation needs to go to Mrs Rosemary Zorzetto for the hours of work that goes into preparing the children for these events. On the horizon for one of our next singing events is the end of year Christmas Concert to be held in the final week of school.
AN EVENT WORTH SHARING
Recently our Senior Students wrote an incredible letter to Matthew Ames. You may have heard or read Matthew’s story which has been in the press and on radio, or seen him on the news completing the ‘Bridge to Brisbane’. Matthew is a father of four children and in June of 2012 became a quadruple amputee. Thanks to the letter of invitation, Matthew will come to St Joseph’s on 11th November to talk to our graduating students on his reflections about ‘Humility, Care and Respect’. More information will come next Term however please note parents of our community are welcome to spend a ‘Morning with Matthew’ on 11th November http://renovatingmatthew.com with our graduating students.
Congratulation to Jackson T who broke 2 records at last week’s Zone Athletics Carnival at Ferny Hills. Jackson now holds the 9 years Boys Long Jump and 200m record for the Zone, well done.
National Schools Tennis Partnership Program
St Joseph’s has recently been awarded partnership in the National Schools Tennis Program which provides the school and it’s students some fantastic rewards. The school has received $1500 worth of tennis equipment as well as some great benefits from students who join up to The Gap Racquet Club tennis lessons at the school. The students of St Joseph’s will also benefit with tennis lessons in weekly PE classes next term. If any parents are interested and available to assist in class tennis lessons next term please contact the office for more details on days and times available.
