Our staff respects the uniqueness and dignity of each child and base teaching/learning programs on sound educational theory and practise. Set amid pockets of natural bushland and native gardens, our modern buildings and facilities offer an attractive and welcoming learning environment for children P-7.
FREE DRESS DAY - 4th DECEMBER
Thursday has been set aside as a free dress day for students to support the Annual Catholic Appeal which supports a number of Brisbane Archdiocese initiatives. There is no donation requested from families as the school will take a small portion of Social Justice Funds and direct them to the appeal. Students are requested to dress sensibly with no singlets or tank tops and students please wear closed in shoes.
Congratulations to our senior school students in year 6 and 7 and their families for the wonderful way you participated in our Thanksgiving Mass and celebration last Thursday evening. It was a great way to end their primary school education. Many thanks to Father Emmanuel for celebrating Mass and to Marnie and Nick Tyler for their beautiful music. As our Year 6 and 7 students head off to the next part of their life's journey we wish them all the best and every success in the future. Many thanks to our Year 6 and 7 teachers, Mrs Prentice and Mrs Wallace, for preparing our students so well for their big night. Thanks also to our Year 5 parents who helped with the supper and to all those who contributed to the success of the evening. We must also mention the special efforts of Michelle and her team to organize the hall and catering and Anne for cooking the thanksgiving cakes. Finally a mention for Mrs Collier for leading the whole event. Well done!
ONE TO ONE PROGRAM
Recently the parents of current year 3 students received a document giving them detailed information about the 2015 program. The package of information contains a timeline in preparation for next year. It also includes a request for email addresses, provides basic financial information and outlines the policy and procedures for the One to One contemporary learning program. It's important that parents read and review this information, as we get ready for 2015. Parents are encouraged to contact the school should they have any concerns or questions.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL ANNUAL CHRISTMAS APPEAL
Every year the St Vincent de Paul society helps families across Queensland who are doing it tough to celebrate Christmas. If you have not donated any non-perishable food items (cans, packets etc.) yet there is still time. Check the pantry! Come on everyone! We have so much to be grateful for – here's a chance to give back! A representative from our local St Vincent de Paul chapter will join us at our liturgy on Friday to accept our donations. Thank you to the many families who have already contributed. You have "made a difference"!
FAMILY CHRISTMAS CAROLS CELEBRATION
Our Christmas Carols night will be held in the Emmaus Centre on Wednesday 3 December beginning at 6.30pm. Children may come dressed in Christmas clothes or as a Christmas character e.g. shepherd. They will be sitting in their class groups and will need to be here at 6.20pm so that we can start on time. All children are singing and are expected to attend. We respectfully ask that younger siblings stay seated with their parents during the carols.
