APRE (Religious Education)
Dress for the Philippines Day was so well supported today, with most of our students wearing RED, BLUE, YELLOW or WHITE to acknowledge our support for the people of the Philippines who were so disastrously affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. It is hard for us to truly comprehend the enormity of such a disaster and the financial support required to assist and repair such damage. But our small collection will combine with contributions from all over the world to help make a difference in the Philippines. Thank you.
St Vinnies Christmas Appeal
We have had a wonderful response to our St Vinnies Christmas Appeal already and are looking forward to this continuing over the next two weeks. We will be presenting all of our Christmas goodies to a St Vincent de Paul representative at mass on our last day of school. Please continue to send in food and gifts items to further contribute to our contribution to local families who are doing it tough this Christmas.
End of Year Celebrations
As the year draws to a close we are now fully involved in preparations for our end of year celebrations. Our Year 7 farewell evening is being held on Wednesday 4th December beginning at 6:00pm in our school hall. All families are invited and welcome to come along to farewell our school leaders and wish them all the best as they move on to secondary school. This celebration will be followed by our annual end of year disco. More information about this will follow.
On Friday 6th December at 10:30 we gather as a whole school community to celebrate all we have achieved this year and to ask God’s blessings on our school community as we all leave each other for our Christmas school holidays and look forward to coming together again next year. All families are invited to join with us to celebrate the end of this very eventful and productive school year.
Till next time. May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
