CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Yesterday we gathered as a school community for Mass to celebrate Catholic Education Week. This year's theme for Catholic Education Week is "Come, live life in all its fullness". This year's theme creates a great mission for those who work within Catholic education, from students and parents to teachers and the wider parish community. That mission is to provide learning experiences in which every person has the opportunity to reach their full human potential – spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, culturally and physically. Thanks to all of our parents who celebrated with us and also thanks to Father Thomas for leading our celebration.
Thanks also goes to our year 5/6/7 families who provided the many tasty cakes, slices and biscuits for our picnic after mass. All proceeds from this go towards Father Thomas's charity Mission of Mercy.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK MASS
Thank you to the Year 3/4 class, Miss Ivey and Father Thomas for leading a very prayerful and wonderful celebration of living life in all its fullness with the Mass yesterday. Also it was wonderful to see so many parents and members of the school community attend and help us celebrate Catholic Education Week.
FIRE SAFETY EDUCATION
The Prep/One class and the One/Two class enjoyed a visit from the firefighters on Monday. The students are participating in a fire safety education program and learnt some valuable fire safety rules in order to keep themselves safe such as: 'Get down low and go go go', 'Get out and stay out', 'Stop, drop and roll' and 'Don't hide scream and shout'. The firefighters will once again visit the students for a final lesson looking at the features of the fire truck.
