Good evening everyone,

One more week to go. On the weekend, the Fremantle Dockers had another win. Good feeling being 3rd on the ladder. A very very long season ahead of us though. Across the bridge the Eagles had a massive win against Magpies. Next weekend is the derby, I am very glad that it is the holidays as I think that it could be a hard day for Freo fans.

Holy Week Celebrations:
This week we will continue Holy Week celebrations.  Holy Week is a very important time in the Catholic faith as we remember and celebrate the events leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection.
On Thursday morning, the Year 5 students will be presenting Holy Thursday.

Easter egg Raffle 
Please make sure that you have brought in your donation for the raffle which will be held on Friday. Your child has been given their raffle tickets. If you would like to be in the raffle, please return one half of the tickets with your family name clearly written on each ticket and $5.
All money raised during this time is donated to Project Compassion.

Term 1, Week 9


Good afternoon everyone,
The footy world has seemed to restore itself after the Dockers put on absolute beautiful display on the Gold Coast. It was very tough watching.

HARMONY DAY
A massive thanks to everyone who contributed to the shared morning tea. There was so much food to choose from and the kids (and myself) enjoyed everything that was on offer. Attached are a couple of reflections that the students wrote on Friday afternoon.



PARENT INTERVIEWS
Thank you to all the parents who have written their name in a suitable time slot. A reminder that the interviews are being held in Week 10.

Good afternoon everyone,

After the first week of the AFL season, it looked fantastic for the boys in purple. Great win to start the season, let’s hope this continues throughout the coming weeks.

Harmony Day – Friday 29th March
The children will be participating in a series of activities throughout the whole day that celebrate the importance of living in harmony with many different cultures.

After the prayer Liturgy in the morning, the students will move between classes in their groups to complete 3 different activities. 

After this there will be a shared recess between the Year Four classes. So we are asking for all students in Year 5 to bring a plate for a shared morning tea on this day.

We would like to girls to bring a plate of savoury food and boys to bring a plate of sweet food to share. If you are able to make this reflective of your families culture that would be great!

Parent Teacher Interviews:
I have placed a schedule up on the front door of the class, if you can please write down your name on a time that suits. In week 10 they will be conducted at the following times:
-     Tuesday 9th April (3:10 – 5:30)
-     Thursday 11th April (3:10 – 5:20)
If you are unavailable for either of these days. Please let me know and we can work out a morning or something other time that suits.

Term 1, Week 7


Hello everyone, welcome to week 7.

YEAR 2 BUDDIES:
We have been lucky enough to be paired up with the Year 2’s as our buddy class. Every Friday after assembly we have been helping them with their weekly spelling tests. It is great to see the responsibility that the Year 5 students are showing.






SWIMMING LESSONS:
Swimming lessons have been going swimmingly over the last week and a bit.
All students have been mostly orgainsed and ready to go which is wonderful to see.

Just a reminder that there is NO canteen at all this week, due to the students being absent at the eating times.

Majority of the children have been very responsible with applying sunscreen before we leave using the class sunscreen that I distribute, however can you please ensure that you remind your child of how important it is to do this.
