Newsletter – Term 4 Week 3 2021

October 20, 2021


Welcome to Week 3.

Prep Orientation is scheduled for tomorrow. This is a great opportunity to welcome our newest students to the Joey’s community as well as strengthening our engagement with our new and continuing parents. The first session will be held from 9:00am – 10:00am and the second session from 12:00pm – 1:00pm.

Due to COVID processes, these sessions will be ticketed events for parents being held in the Multi-Purpose Area room while the incoming students spend some time in the Prep rooms with the teachers.

During this day, our current Prep students will spend the day with the Year 1 teachers getting to know them and the current Year 1 class will spend the day with their Year 6 ‘Buddies.’

This is always a very exciting day on the Joey’s calendar.

The Rockhampton City Council have recently installed two signs on Main Street outside our school. This has been an effort to promote the left lane as you head towards Glenmore Road as an added slipway into our carpark in the morning and afternoon.

The signs indicate ‘No Parking’ between the times of 7:30am – 9:00am in the morning, and 2:30pm – 4:00pm (when amended) in the afternoon. Please be aware that failing to adhere to these signs could result in a $55 fine.

For those who may have been parking in these spaces to drop off students please enter the car park to do so via the drop-off area. I also ask that when dropping students off in the morning that you do not just stop outside the office near the turn which causes unnecessary congestion but proceed as far down the drop-off area as possible in order to move as many cars off the street as possible.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

As you may be reading this, interviews for the new APRE position at St Joseph’s beginning 2022 are being held today. After the shortlisted applicants are interviewed, the panel will make a recommendation to Leesa Jeffcoat and Bishop Michael. The announcement of the successful applicant will be sent out to the community via an official letter shortly after.

My Long Service Leave will begin next week on 25th October until the 12th of November. During this three-week period, Mrs Bernadette Brennan will be acting Principal. Mrs Elizabeth Carter will be Acting APRE and Mrs Deanne Senini will be back in her role as APC. If needed, please do not hesitate to contact the team through the school office or via email.

See you back in Week 7 for an exciting end to the year.

Have a great week.
