Our Year 3 students have begun their
preparation for the reception of their First Eucharist. This is a very important time in the life of our families. We would like to keep all these families in our
prayers as well as our teachers who are preparing our students for milestone in their lives.
LIZA SIMPSON'S ARBOUR
You may have noticed that there is a new arbour outside the Kindergarten classrooms. This has been erected in memory of Liza Simpson a much loved and respected former teacher who was tragically taken from us whilst still teaching at our school. We will have a dedication and blessing of this arbour in the near future and will inform our community of a date when this has been set.
PRINCIPAL'S GUIDED TOURS
We would like to be able to showcase the engaged learning that is taking place at our school.
In order to do this there will be the opportunity for interested prospective and present parents to have a guided tour through our school in order to showcase this amazing learning environment. These tours will take place on May 30th at 10:30am and 12:30 pm and June 7th at 10:30am and 12:30pm. Please invite anyone you know that may be thinking about where to send their child!
By the end of this term we expect to have our cashless canteen up and running. We envisage that the process of having this fully functioning will take 12 months. The company that we will engage is called Flexischools. This is not an App but a website. Please take the time to go online and explore how easy this will make your life when it comes to ordering your child's lunch. Here is the link https://www.flexischools.com.au/
YEAR ONE - CLASS NEWS
Year One have worked very hard in Mathematics this term. They have used strategies like counting on from the largest number, concrete materials to consolidate understanding eg ten frames, a class number line on the floor to consolidate strategies, watching mathematical activities on the class television which have all helped to consolidate their learning in this very important area.
MOTHERS DAY STALL
Thanks to the tireless efforts of our P&F for the organisation of the mother's Day stall this year. The students were very excited to purchase a gift for their mothers. Your help and co-operation in supplying a gift is much appreciated.
