Dear Parents & Guardians

Last week we held our Parents and Friends Annual General Meeting with the main order of business being the nominations and elections of office bearers for 2023. The following community members will constitute the P&F Executive for 2023 whom I look forward to working with next year.

  • P&F President
    Lorinda Goodsall
  • P&F Vice President
    Katrina Perkins
  • P&F Secretary
    Petrina Brady
  • P&F Treasurer
    Leonie Mooney
  • P&F Regional Delegate
    Robert Brady
  • P&F Grants Officer
    Leah Benson

This Saturday will be our final Children’s Mass for the year. Please come and join us in Our Lady Help of Christians Church at 6:30pm as we celebrate with the Parish. There will be a ‘cuppa’ after mass, so families are asked to bring a shared plate for a light supper if possible. Hope to see you there.

Tomorrow night will be our annual swimming carnival with lower school events happening in the 25m pool earlier in the afternoon and then Upper, Age Championship Events happening in the 50m pool after that.

For the 25m pool, most spectators are on the grassed area between the pool and the toilet blocks and for the 50m events, we ask that families be in the Grandstand as the pool decks either side need to be cleared for lifesavers if needed.

We ask that students not be in the pool other than when they are required for their official races due to safety reasons. Entry should be free for both students and spectators for this event, and due to the evening being a little later on a school night, Age Championship Medals and the overall carnival winner will be presented at a special assembly on Friday Morning.

This week marked our final Monday Morning Whole School Assembly as our final two weeks we will be holding our Semester 2 – Performing Arts Assembly on Monday, 21st November in Week 8 and our Semester 2 Academic Awards on Monday, 28th November in Week 9. All are welcome to attend these special events. If your child will be receiving an award, you will be notified by the school via text message by Friday the 25th of November.

Enjoy the third last week of the year.
