Wednesday was a great day of Celebration. We began with Market Day. Congratulations and thank you to all the support from our parent and student community with your generous gifts of both market produce and purchasing. Special thanks to Miss Katie Andresen, Mrs Sonya Teevan and all our school staff for their organisation. We raised $1,800 to go towards our Sustainability budget. Huge thanks to our wonderful Keogh family who have so generously donated to the school and our P&F this spectacular coffee cart. As the first recipient ever of coffee from our new coffee cart, I was very impressed. Thank you to Mrs Bec Gibbons and her team for her organisation of our delicious egg and bacon burgers.
CELEBRATION OF LEARNING
Celebration of Learning was a huge success. It was so wonderful to see so much excitement around our students’ learning. Great to see and hear our students talking through their own learning journey and success, sharing this with our adult community.
SCHOOL UNIFORM UPDATE
As we approach the hotter months of Summer I would like to introduce an OPTIONAL new St Joseph’s sports shirt and sports shorts for both our girls and boys to wear. The fabric is a positive style and has been especially chosen to suit our hotter months and for physical activity. The sports shorts are a fabric better suited for physical activity also. This sports shirt has been designed with our new logo colours of brown, gold, green and blue. This optional uniform will be available through Ashgrove Drapery as ready to order now for fourth term. I am happy for Prep students to also wear this uniform if parents feel it is a better suit for our hot weather. I would also like to inform our parent community that with the FORMAL uniform I am happy for students to wear white socks. I believe this change from brown socks to white socks would be easier and cheaper for our families. This change can be done over the 2016 year as the students’ brown socks wear out.
YEAR ONE GRANDPARENTS MASS AND MORNING TEA
This week our Year One students celebrated and honoured their grandparents. The morning started with a special Mass in the Church with Father Josen. A number of our grandparents shared their experiences and joys of the special role they have as grandparent. After Mass, our Year One students and parent helpers put on a special cuppa and morning tea. The morning closed with a short concert of songs by the Year Ones.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of term months at 7.00pm. You can access the past minutes from P&F on the Parents and Friends tab. If you have any suggestions/feedback for our future agendas please email Denise Kerr on email@example.com
