A big thankyou to our Year 7 students who stepped in and were a fantastic help to co-ordinate and lead our Grandparents Day Liturgy and Morning Tea service. The boys did a great job taking orders and being wonderful hosts for Morning Tea.
A big thank you also to our term four Faith Ministry group of Will, Patrick, Lauchlan, Zara and Sophie for all their help with the Disco on Friday night, they collected entrance money, judged competitions and ensured everyone had a great time.
Also I am extremely appreciative of the parents and staff who were on hand to help on Friday night and to Jen Bryant for stepping in as DJ for the night.
World Mission Month
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all members of the St Joseph’s community for your overwhelming support and generosity during last week’s celebrations for World Mission Month.
Both fundraising events were a huge success with $120.00 raised from our “Crazy Sock Day” on Wednesday and $430.00 raised on Friday night at our “Mission Mosh Disco.” The money raised will be donated to Catholic Missions and will enable children in Jamaica to have nutritious lunches, class resources for students and tackle the ongoing problem of violence with children able to attend non violence courses.
Mr. David McGovern, the director of Catholic mission attended a brief assembly this afternoon to share the story of Catholic Mission and be presented with a cheque for $551.00. This is a fantastic effort and I wish to thank all members of our community for giving so generously to the cause.
Congratulations to the Gray Family on the safe of arrival of Emily May Gray born Sunday 26th October. Emily and Brooke are doing very well. The whole St. Joey’s community are excited to welcome a new member of our family.
Uniform orders and payment are due in by Friday 31st October.
