4 BE’S MORNING TEA
We will be holding a special afternoon tea tomorrow to acknowledge and celebrate those students who have received 4 Be’s awards since they were introduced in late Term 2. The students involved received an invitation last week and will join with Mrs Campbell, Mr Morrell and Mr Tuohey to celebrate their achievement. The 4 Be’s awards are awarded to students who are doing an exceptional job in following one of the school norms of Be Respectful, Be a Learner, Be Responsible or Be Safe.
YEAR 6 COMMUNITY SERVICE
St. Patrick’s, Year 6 students had to complete four hours of Community Service leading up to the Sacrament of Confirmation. By Community Service we mean doing a helpful service for the community. All of Yr 6 received a booklet where they wrote what they did and their experience. Some students went to charities, nursing homes or some helped around the school. Other students did cleaning in outdoor and indoor public places. The community was very proud and happy to see Year 6 represent their school in a responsible manner. All of Year 6 were very honoured to help out and assist others in our local, school or parish community. Written By Kasti & Anshu
