CATHOLIC EDUCATION WINDOWS
ANNUAL ARTS EVENING
On the 21st of August we will be holding our second annual Arts Evening. It’s a time for parents to come and appreciate some of the wonderful pieces of work that our students have produced throughout the year. The P and F committee will be working alongside the Gayndah Art Gallery to create an event that not only showcases the talents of our students but that of other members within our community. On the evening children will be encouraged to come along and share their pieces of work before moving off to an evening of dance, games and various other activities (including a BBQ dinner). At which time parents will move into the conference room for food and drinks and an evening of community building and social interactions. It was a bumper evening last year and this year looks to be the same. So lock in the date now and we look forward to seeing you all then on the 21st.
WOOLWORTHS EARN AND LEARN PROGRAM
Thank you to all those who have collected Earn and Learn stickers to assist the resourcing of our school. So far our tally stands at 150 stickers. Keep collecting and asking those out of town relatives and friends to support St. Joey’s.
The initiative runs throughout Term 3, and finalised tallies need to be submitted in September. Collected stickers can be brought into school, and collated before being sent off to Modern Teaching Aids to determine how many points towards new resources we had received. Make the phone call today, and ask the “out of towners” to help us out!
