Week 7 Bulletin

Twilight Assembly

Thank you to the many parents who have sent positive emails to the Primary teachers congratulating them on their hard work, enthusiasm and the success of last week's Twilight Assembly.  The kind words are always very much appreciated. We were all so very proud of the class performances and you could definitely see the joy on the girls' faces.  All the classes had put thought into their acts and you could see the enormous amount of enthusiasm the students had when performing their class pieces and singing the final songs.

Also in this week's Bulletin:

  • All you need to know about next week's End of Year Mass of Thanksgiving.
  • We farewell a long-serving member of staff, acknowledging their 35 years of service
  • From the Primary School... Year 6 host their last assembly as Primary Students, Year 4 Pyjama Day, and Year 2 learn how to 'Ride a Bike Right'

November is a time when all of us at school are transiting from one year to the next. Students begin or end their exams and others are involved in fun activities like Year 8 with Picnic in the Park.  Some students in our junior years have just been to Children's University graduation ceremony at Adelaide University, to receive their certificates for work accomplished in their own time.  Year 12 students are finishing their exams and will soon have time to think of the two major transition events which celebrate their movement from school days viz., the End of Year Mass and the Graduation Ball.

Upcoming Events

  • Primary Twilight Assembly: Tuesday 20 November
  • Final Parents & Friends Committee and Fete Committee meeting(s) for 2018: Wednesday 21 November
  • Year 6 Graduation: Wednesday 28 November

How would you describe the FETE?

Posted on 31 October 2018
How would you describe the FETE?

There was the aroma of delicious food wherever you went; wonderful bands, vocal and dance entertainment to lift your spirits; books to boost your home shelves; rare and wonderful classic treasures; high quality craft items; crazy rides; lucky dips to delight; spins at the well-stocked chocolate wheel; salon hair and nails, fabulous items at the auction; and, at the Rose Café, time to sip tea with the sounds of jazz in the background.  Best of all was the friendly vibe around the Fete as people chatted with friends, relatives and past parents and students.  To top it all we certainly give thanks to God for perfect weather!
