St Joseph's Primary School in Millmerran was established in 1959 and originally staffed by the Sisters of St Joseph, an Australian order founded by Saint Mary MacKillop in 1866. The school was built with much voluntary labour and is regarded by the Catholic community with great pride.

St Joseph's caters for children from Prep to Year 6. The current level of student enrolments allows for close interaction between parents, students and staff. Our staff endeavours to foster a climate of meaningful learning, love, security and personal interest in each student.

As part of the Diocese of Toowoomba, the school is Catholic Education Officeadministered by the Toowoomba Catholic Education Office.

I think that I covered everything in my speech on Friday night but just wanted to once again congratulate and thank all of our students for their efforts on the night. Your performance of the Christmas story really set the night up well. Thanks again to our teachers and teacher aides, led by Mrs Judd for your time in putting that performance together.

Thanks to our P&F and band of helpers who helped run the BBQ afterwards. There was a great atmosphere and it was wonderful to see so many of our families present.

Thank you to all families who supported the final fundraiser of the year – Fish and Chip/Nacho Day!! This lunch raised $403.10 for Fr Thomas' humanitarian project, Mission of Mercy and Hope. This is truly a grass root project that benefits real people and offers them the opportunity for a fulfilling and productive life and is entirely funded by sponsors and fundraising. Thank you to the happy helpers below for their organisation and dedication. Fr Thomas will be grateful for our efforts!!

The End of Year Masswill take place on Thursday 3rd December at 11.30am. We are yet again blessed to be led by Father Thomas in this celebration and enjoy the ever uplifting presence of Soul Connection. Families are invited back to the school for a shared lunch. Please bring a plate of food to share.

During the last couple of weeks the students have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to make a special Christmas gift to take home plus enjoy other extra Christmas craft activities. To make this possible we ask that each student contribute $5 towards the cost of resources and supplies. Please fill in the slip in this weeks's newsletter and return with money to the school office. Thanks you for your assistance with this matter.

The Swimming Carnival will take place, tomorrow, Thursday 26th November. 8 to 13 year old students will compete from 10am. The younger students will arrive at approximately 10.30am to participate in fun activities. All students will return to school by midday however are free to go home with their parents if they wish. Timekeepers will be required so please volunteer your services. Thank you.

The first Prep Transition Day will take place on 6th November, from 1.30 to 2.50pm. 2016 Preppies will be welcomed to participate in the activities and routines along with our current Preppies. If you know of any potential preppies that may like to come along and take the opportunity to experience being a St Joseph’s student please encourage them to do so. Transition Days are also planned for the 13th and 20th November with a time to be advised.

The final Formal Assembly for 2015 will take place this Friday 27th November at 9am in the Assembly Hall.

Each family received a book of tickets to sell for the Christmas Multi Draw Raffle. This will be drawn at the Christmas in the Bush.
