UNIFORM SHOP OPENING HOURS
DURING TERM TIME
~ Monday - 8.30am to 9.15am
~ Thursday - 8.30am to 9.15am (2.15pm to 3.15pm only if assembly is on)
All students will enjoy progressing to their next year level on Friday 30th November. We will endeavor to place our classrooms in sequential order on the upper level. This will in most cases mean a change of room for the teacher rather that the students! This is under collaborative discussion with the teachers involved. The Year 2 class will be situated in the ‘old music room’ which is to be refurbished over the holiday break. This will allow our Year 2 students to remain on the ‘ground’ level and near their Year 1 friends.
The annual swimming carnival is on Monday, December 3 commencing at 9am at the Glennie Aquatic Centre. All students received a note from Mrs Coggan with the details for the day. All parents, grandparents are asked to join us for this great event of competition and fun for our students. Many thanks to Mrs Coggan for organising this event.
FAREWELL MASS AND YEAR 6 GRADUATION
The Farewell Mass and Year 6 Graduation is on Thursday 6th December. It is a very special day for the whole community. The program is:
Graduation Morning Tea: 10.00 – 11.00am. Year 6 students, their families, Fr Darrell, Councillor James O’Shea, Mrs Bliss, Mrs Manthey, Mr Anderson and parishioners.
Final Assembly: 11.00am Graduation Power-Point, presentation of certificates, P&F Presentations.
All classes will be involved for this morning program. It is not just for the parents of the graduation class. It is an opportunity for all families to give thanks to God for the wonderful year that has been and to say farewell before we all take a very well-earned break. The Year 5 students will be waiters for the morning tea and their families are asked to provide finger food, such as sandwiches, fruit and sweets for the shared morning tea for the graduating class. More details will be provided for students in the Year 5 class.
