ST JOSEPH'S DAY
On Thursday 19th March, we celebrate the Feast of St Joseph – the husband of Mary, the foster father of Jesus and the Patron of our Parish and School. St Joseph was an ordinary manual labourer although he descended from the royal house of David. He was a just man - an expression which indicates how faithfully he fulfilled his high trust of protecting and guarding God's greatest treasures upon earth, Jesus and Mary. Please join us for 9am mass tomorrow; this mass will include the presentation of our Year 6 leaders to the school community. Following mass we will cut the St. Joseph’s Day cake and the take part in a few fun activities before a Sausage Sizzle lunch.
NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST BULLYING
Friday 20th March is the National Day of Action against Bullying. This annual day provides a focus for all schools to say Bullying. No Way! and to strengthen their existing everyday messages that bullying and violence at school are not okay at any time. To support this cause we ask all children to wear something Orange on Friday in recognition that Bullying can and does happen in our community, and our nation. By wearing Orange we want to highlight that it is NOT OKAY to bully others and we work hard to make sure that Bully Bulldozer doesn’t exist in our school. Some more information about this will accompany today’s newsletter.
CELEBRATION OF LEARNING EVENING
A Celebration of Learning Evening will take place on Thursday, March 26th. In addition to our open door policy for each of the classrooms, we take two opportunities per year to share with parents and family members the work that has been taking place. It will serve as a hands on opportunity for students to talk their loved ones through various pieces of work, and enables parents and caregivers to have a clearer picture of the outcomes achieved in the first term.
CENTENARY WALK-A-THON AND FISH AND CHIP DAY
The Centenary Walk- A- Thon and Fish and Chip Day for Caritas will take place on Friday the 27th of March. As part of the fundraising effort students are asked to find up to five people who will sponsor them to complete the Walk-A-Thon and in doing so help to raise much needed funds to complete such projects as exterior painting and window renovations of our church. Money can be returned to the office at any time. Information regarding the Fish and Chip Day will be sent home next week.
