What a Production!
What a great production we all experienced last night! I’m sure you marvelled at all our students as they presented the Lion King Kids last night in our parish hall and I’m sure you were very proud of your own children. Again we thank our students for their commitment and perseverance over Term 3 as this show has been prepared. We thank our staff, especially Mrs Webster, Mr Sully and Shay, and we also thank our parent community for their support prior to and during our show. Photos of the event are included in this newsletter and will also be published in our X Files School Magazine at the end of the year. It was also great to be able to share in Mr Peter McElgunn’s leadership award. A fitting tribute to a great advocate and servant of Catholic Education. With all this hard work over the term, everyone now deserves their holiday break over the next two weeks. I pray that all families have the opportunity to have some quality time together, (in between watching footy finals!) and return refreshed for the push towards the year’s end. [foogallery id="956"]

Hot Dogs for Food Share
  Last Wednesday we were all treated to a Hot Dog lunch organised by a group of our parents. The money raised from this occasion was donated to FoodShare who generously assist our Breakfast Club by providing fruit and bread. Mr Dedy Friebe visited us in the afternoon and was presented with a cheque for $650. Thanks to Marg Rix and Kylie Lewis for their magnificent leadership in this!

Happy Father’s Day Dad!
Mufasa: A king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, Simba, the sun will set on time here and will rise with you as the new king. Simba: And this’ll all be mine? Mufasa: Everything. This scene from our production of the Lion King Kids crystallises the gift our dads give us. We begin with the gift of life, but our dads share with us opportunities and wisdom as we move from age to age. Our dads are probably not kings like Mufasa, but they are certainly kings of our hearts. As we move towards the weekend we are all conscious of our dads and other special men in our lives. And we give thanks for the love, guidance and support that we are so fortunate to receive from these special men. It is also a time for us to be mindful that not everyone in our society enjoys a positive relationship with the men in their life and, perhaps, this time can also be a reminder that we need to ensure that our sons grow up understanding what it is to be a good man. We also especially remember those in our community whose dads have died. I am sure that each Father’s Day is bittersweet as they remember the life of a wonderful man, yet also acknowledge their absence. Father’s Day Breakfast Thanks to Julie Sagnol and her team of volunteers who again did a wonderful job looking after all those hungry men and children who lined up for breakfast this morning! Our annual breakfast is a great community building event. Julie has been the heart and soul of this operation for many years and we are so fortunate that she has given so generously each year. This was Julie’s last year coordinating and we are hopeful another parent will be able to step forward to continue this great event. As well as a special event for the men in our children’s lives, it is also an important fundraiser for our Parents and Friends. Well Done Danny! Danny McKenna (Degan’s dad) was named as Warrnambool’s Father of the Year in the Rotary awards this week. This was great recognition for a dad in our community who works hard for his family and contributes to our school.
