The walking school bus is a great way to start the day and really makes our school visible in the local community! Next Wednesday Matty ‘The Big Fella’ Stewart will be joining the Morriss Road route. Anyone is welcome, remember walking groups depart at 8.15am.

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"]

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!
