Family Mass

It was lovely seeing so many families on Sunday, at our Family Mass, and at our Primary and Year 9/10 Parent Information Nights over the past week.  What a beautiful way to begin our school year and celebrate our community spirit.  Still not to be missed are the upcoming Parent Information Evenings for Years 7, 8, 11 & 12 as follows:

7pm Wednesday 13 February - Year 7 & 8 Parents
7pm Monday 18 February - Year 11 & 12 Parents

Not to be missed is the special invitation to our parents to tour the new Year 12 facilities, prior to the proceedings between 6:30pm & 6:55pm.  See inside the Bulletin for more information.

Term 1 Interschool Sport

The first round of interschool sport commences this week, with Water Polo Thursday afternoon and Saturday Morning Sport this Saturday, 16 February.  Final draws for Saturday's games - particularly times - were not confirmed at the time our newsletter went to press.  As such, please be sure that your daughter/s check the noticeboard in the Gym, to confirm what time their team will be playing on Saturday.  Information will also be available directly from the SA Catholic Secondary Schools Girls Sports Association (SACSSGSA) website, later in the week.

The Week 3 Bulletin is not to be missed!  Get it online now.
