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.

ANZAC DAY SUPPORT
Each ANZAC day a small group of students, staff and families join the ANZAC dawn service at Cleveland to place a wreath and pray for service men and women. In the spirit of remembering our ANZACs we encourage families to join us again in 2014. As school starts back just days before ANZAC long weekend we ask that families book into their calendars the Dawn service 5.00am Cleveland Memorial. The youth are the keepers of the ANZAC tradition and we keep that spirit alive when we demonstrate its significance to our children. More information after the school holidays.
CROSS COUNTRY MONDAY 31ST MARCH AND WINTER SPORTS TRAINING
Yesterday the school participated in the Annual Cross Country trial which is in preparation for District and Catholic Schools competitions. We thank Mrs Prentice and her team of teacher and school officer helpers for their organizing efforts. Thanks also to many parents who supported the event. Most of all congratulations to our students who performed so well on the day and enjoyed the friendly competition. Congratulations to Wattle who won the competition and were closely followed by Banksia then Grevillea.
DISTRICT SPORT SUCCESS
On behalf of the school community we would like to congratulate Jarrod who has been selected in the Redlands District Softball team to compete in Met East trials later in the year.
25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS
The celebration of the 25th anniversary of the school is a special opportunity for our community to celebrate its past, present and future. To help support the organisation of celebrations this year an interested and keen group of staff and parents (drawn from our School Board, Parish and P&F) are going to be gathering on regular occasions to continue the process of planning and organization.
The first major decision is that the school is holding a weekend of celebrations to coincide with the Feast day of St Luke on 18 and 19 October. (Please mark this weekend in your calendar / diary).
