Newsletter – Term 4 Week 8, 2022

Dear Parents & Guardians

May I begin by saying well done to all of the students who displayed great courage in hopping up in front of the school community and displaying their talent during our Semester 2 Performance Arts Assembly on Monday morning. Well done to both the talented students as well as their teachers.

As the end of the school year draws near, we still have a few significant events to celebrate on the Joey’s calendar. The first of these being our school Presentation Night this Thursday, 24th November. The evening will be held in the school Multi-Purpose Area beginning promptly at 6:00pm. Each grade level, including the Kindy, have been working hard to prepare a Christmas song to perform on the night, which will also include the presentation of our annual awards that recognise the efforts of students throughout the entire year.

I would ask that during the evening we keep general conversation to a minimum as a form of respect for those performing or presenting and receiving awards on the night.

The night is anticipated to conclude at approximately 7:45pm and it would be lovely to see as many of our students and their families come along and attend.

Monday 28th November at 8:35am we will be holding our Semester 2 Academic Awards. All are welcome to attend.

At this assembly we will be celebrating our Gold, Silver, Bronze and Maroon Academic Awards recipients as well as our Navy Effort Awards for Semester 2. As per our normal procedures, and the length of the event, our Prep students will not attend this assembly.

Next Wednesday evening, 30th November we will be celebrating our Graduation Mass for the Year 6 students, which will mark the culmination of their primary schooling. The evening will commence with mass in OLHC Church at 5:00pm followed by a presentation & dinner for the students and their parents at the Frenchville Sports Club. Year 6 Parents, please ensure you are up to date on all the information by remaining in contact with the Year 6 teachers and reading all the communications sent home. I am sure it will be a memorable night for all those who are involved.

Thursday 1st December, our Year 6 class will be holding their ‘Fun Day’ celebration and traveling to Keppel Island for the day. Information about this event was sent home in the form of a note with each student.

Drawing our school year to a close will be our End of Year Mass next week on Friday, 2nd December. We will be celebrating with a whole school Mass commencing at 9:00am in OLHC church. The Mass not only provides us the opportunity to say fare well to our Year 6 students for the final time, it will also incorporate the induction of our student leaders for the 2023 school year.

School reports for the Second Semester will be posted on Parent Lounge on Wednesday, 30th November. Please ensure you have your appropriate login details in order to access your child’s information.
