FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Welcome to Week 6.

It was wonderful to see our children show off their science knowledge yesterday with several students demonstrating their expertise in scientific knowledge on a variety of topics. It is great to see our students have the confidence to hop in front of an audience and present on a science related topic that they are passionate about and sharing their enthusiasm for learning with others. Thanks to Mrs Senini for organising this learning opportunity for our students.

If all goes to plan, we will be taking part in an Astrology Night at the Emmaus College Main Street campus tomorrow evening. Emmaus have been very generous with their facilities and providing our students with a rare opportunity to see the moon and stars like never before. Hopefully we have a clear night and great weather for the event unlike the last time we did this a few years ago at Joeys when Mr Fitz forgot to shut off the night-time sprinklers at school and everyone got wet.

Congratulations to William, Patrick, Finn, Mackenzie, Maycie, Nate and their families as these students celebrated the Sacrament of First Holy Communion at Holy Family church over the weekend. Well done to all who were involved as our Sacraments celebrations have now spanned weekend masses over five weeks.

Adventure+ began the installation of our upper playground on Monday afternoon. Hopefully by the time you read this it will nearly be ready to use. It has been a long time coming and I thank you for your patience with this process. This playground will be specifically for our Year 3-6 students and be a well-used resource for years to come. Plans to cover the equipment will be implemented at a later date.

Congratulations to Stacey Hogan who has accepted the role as Director of the St Joseph’s Kindy from 2022. I would also like to pass on my thanks to Jessica Cann for her work at our Kindy. We wish Jess the best in her future endeavours.

Have a great week.
