We are fast approaching the end of term, which is a great time for parents to get some feedback about their child’s learning so far this year. One of the major ways we do this at St Joseph’s is through our Celebration of Learning, which will be held on Tuesday 28th March. Classrooms will be open from 8am to 8:40am, and again from 3pm until 5:30pm. This is a time for students to showcase work for their parents and family members, and talk about what they have learnt this term. Teachers will be in the room but this time is more focused on conversations between parents and their children. If you wish to meet and discuss your child’s progress so far this year, please contact your class teacher to arrange an appointment.
YEAR 6 LEADERSHIP
Congratulations to our Year 6 students, who had a wonderful Leadership Day on Tuesday with students from Hervey Bay, Childers and Maryborough, and who will receive their badges, shirts and pavers at our assembly this Friday. Please note this assembly will start at 8:45am, to allow the students involved in North Burnett trials to attend these after the ceremony.
On Friday morning 24th March, we will officially welcome our 2017 Year 6 leaders by presenting them with their leadership badges, leadership shirts and personalised pavers at our whole school assembly. This is a special assembly for our year 6’s as we present them with the objects that symbolise their acceptance of the role of servant leaders in our school. We invite all parents along to join us in this special occasion. Please be aware that due to sporting events being held later in the day, the Year 6 Leadership presentation assembly will begin earlier than usual at 8.40am in the church hall, so get in early to grab a seat.
PURPLE DAY FOR EPILEPSY
Next Monday, we celebrate Purple Day for Epilepsy. This is an important event in our school calendar, and a great way to acknowledge all those living with epilepsy. Don’t forget to check out the merchandise available in the office to support this worthy cause. I’m looking forward to seeing our community wearing purple on Monday to show their support!
