CRAZY SOCK DAY
St Patrick's will be celebrating 'Socktober' with a 'Crazy Sock Day' on Friday 28th October (Week 3). All children are encouraged to wear crazy socks all over their body - What is the most creative way you can wear your socks? Please bring a gold coin donation to participate in the day!
NSW Grandparents Day will be celebrated on 28th October this year. St Patrick's Primary deeply values the role grandparents play in a child's life. We would love to acknowledge the contributions our grandparents make to the success of our children's future by inviting them to our school on Friday 28th October. We would love our grandparents to spend some time visiting their grandchildren's classrooms to see all the wonderful learning that is taking place! This will be followed by a picnic lunch on our beautiful school grounds. Grandparents are wel-come to bring lunch to be shared amongst their family. This is a family event so any parents that would like to attend the picnic lunch are also welcome. Classroom visit 10.30am followed by Picnic lunch at 11am.
PARISH / SCHOOL FETE
Only 3 weeks to go until this community celebration. The wheels have been put into motion to make this the best fete ever. Bring the family along for a fun day of activities and bargains.
Unlimited Rides pre purchase wrist bands. This year our unlimited ride wrist bands will be available through the front office for $30. These bands can be collected on the day of the fete through the information desk. The bands are extremely cost effective if you plan on using these attractions with individual show rides costing $6-$8.
CATHOLIC MISSION 2016
This year Catholic Mission will continue to raise awareness and funds to support children living in poverty. The 2016 appeal is targeted at the children of Cambodia and will support missionaries and educational initiatives
such as the Mobile tuk-tuk education centre.
St Patrick's will continue to support this fantastic charity through the 'Socktober' fundraiser. The CSO will not be distributing the collection boxes to be sent home as they have done in past years due to the rising cost of this resource. Instead, we will collect all money in class and try to fill our football socks to the brim! Donations can be made at any stage but we will be asking for a gold coin donation when we have our 'Crazy Sock Day' on Friday 28th October (Week 3).
