FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
We congratulate all our students who are
making their First Holy Communion this weekend. We would like to thank their teachers and families for their support during this time. This is a very significant event in the lives of our families and of our school. Please keep these students and families in your
prayers as they journey in their faith.
2019 KINDERGARTEN ENROLMENTS
Kindergarten enrolments are now open for next year. We have already begun our interviews. Our Transition to School program will begin in Term 4. Please remind anyone you know who is wishing to enrol and has not done so to contact the school office for an enrolment form.
If there is anyone who would like a tour of the school please also contact the school office for a time as we would be delighted to be able to do this.
Staff at this time in the term are engaged in finalising assessments and achievement data so they can report accurately on student progress in their
mid-year reports. Reports will be sent home in Week Ten. Kinder/Years 1/2 reports will be sent home on 4th July, Years 3/4 on the 5th and Years 5/6 on the 6th July.
Parents will be given the opportunity to meet with teachers about reports after the holidays.
