Pupil Free Day
On Monday 20th of October students will be having a holiday from school to allow our staff members to participate in the process known as Consistency of Teacher Judgement Day (CTJ). This day enables the teachers within Brisbane Catholic Education from our region to come together to compare student work samples and ensure they are grading them to the same standards. If you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Uniform order forms are now available from the school office, or may be downloaded from our website. If you would like an order form sent home with your child please let the office know. Orders and payment are due in by Friday 31st October.

It is the day on which we reflect on the urgency to proclaim the Gospel in our times.
World Mission Day is Sunday 19th October and World Children’s Mission Day is held on Wednesday 22nd October.
