Over our school holiday break, many of our 2015 Master Plans will come to fruition. Our Amphitheatre on our school oval will be completed, as well as drainage and repairs to our school oval. The hall guttering will be relocated and repaired which will stop the internal leak. We have our outdoor timber furniture being installed outside Years 3, 4, 5 and our Staff Room. The oval wall as well as other external concrete walls will be painted. Our front office and meeting room will be painted. New carpet will be installed in our meeting room. All carpets and windows will be cleaned. The grass area and garden under the OSHC building will be excavated and concrete will be extended.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
In Term Three we celebrate Catholic Education Week - Sunday 26 July - Saturday 1 August 2015. This is an opportunity for all Catholic schools to celebrate and promote their distinctive mission and ethos. The theme for celebrations this year is: Engaging Minds. Igniting Hearts. Serving Others. More information about St Joseph’s celebrations are coming soon …
5 Brown were fortunate to have a team from ‘Jamie’s Italian’ visit and cook Tallulah’s winning recipe last Monday! The class learnt about how healthy food can be scrumptious. Chef Dave, Rita, Jess and Maddie spent the middle block with the class demonstrating how to cook the Pumpkin and Ricotta Ravioli with Sage Butter recipe. They all got to taste Tallulah’s delicious and fresh recipe… but don’t think you’ll miss out as it will be on the menu in all Australian Jamie’s Italian Restaurants 13th-19th July. Congratulations to Tallulah, thank you for shar ing your gifts and talents with others!
You may have noticed a new tab on our public school website. On the top right, above the Principal’s Message, you will find a ‘Community Access’ tab. This tab takes you to the place in which you will soon be able to access the Parent Portal. We will be launching our St Joseph’s Parent Portal in Week 1 of Term 3. Our Parent Portal is a secure, online environment for current parents to access information about events, announcements, forms/notes etc. To first access our Parent Portal, you will receive an invitation letter via the email address currently held by the school. It is vital that you ensure this email is up-to-date prior to the end of term. While we are ready to launch our Parent Portal, please note that like all new systems and ways of doing things, this space will grow and change over time. Some parts of the portal will be ‘under construction’ and we appreciate your patience with this. We envisage that by 2016, the Parent Portal will be one of our main communication tools for our families.
