Newsletter – Term 2 Week 8, 2023

June 8, 2023


Dear Parents & Guardians

Thanks to all who contributed towards our Athletics days both on Monday and Tuesday.  Both days were not the best of conditions but were held in great spirit.  Thanks to all the staff who put in extra hours to set-up and prepare for the day, especially Mrs Carter who has put in a tremendous amount of time making the event a success.  Thanks to the parents who volunteered their time over both days.  We very much appreciate your commitment to the Joey’s community.I also have to mention the Emmaus community who always provide support to us and nothing was too much trouble yesterday.  It is a wonderful partnership we have with our local college.

Here are the results for the past two days.  Congratulations to Daly House as 2023 Champions.
