St Joseph's Art Evening
Thanks to all those who were able to join us last Friday night for our Arts Evening. I think it was a fantastic community event and great fun was had by parents and students alike. A special thanks to Sue Capewell for judging our artwork and choosing the winners in each category. If you missed it please see the current newsletter for photos of some of the winners, art pieces and our choir (who made their debut!).
St Joseph's School Song Writing Workshop
On Thursday 4th September we will begin the process of writing our school song. The song writing team from Brisbane will facilitate a gathering of ideas for our song from parents and students. Parents please join us at 8.30—8.50am on Thursday morning in the Hall to share what you value and feel makes our school unique and special. We need all the ideas from all the community to create a wonderful song.
Raising Funds and Awareness of Motor Neurone Disease
Congratulations to Mr. Gray who endured not one but six buckets of ice cold water on Friday afternoon to fulfil a challenge set down by Gayndah Guardian Pharmacy. It was a great spectacle for all to see, but it is even more important to be aware that this was not completed just for the entertainment of staff and students.
On Friday we shared the debilitating nature of Motor Neurone Disease and the fact that at present it has no cure. For this reason we as a St. Joseph’s community as well as a Gayndah community at large are raising funds for research. On Friday 29th August at 2.30pm, we will again watch as six buckets of ice cold water are tipped over the heads of willing staff members. However, the difference of this Friday’s event is that we have asked all students to wear free dress and bring a Gold Coin or folding note even to add to the marvellous tally so far raised by the community. See you all Friday at 2.30pm.
Father's Day Breakfast and Photos
Don’t forget Father’s Day Breakfast on Friday 5th September. Mr. Gray is still chasing photos of children with their dads for our morning prayer display. Please keep sending them into the office.
