Friday July 28 is Grandparents Day. Grandparents (and other family members) are invited to come to the classrooms between 9am and 10am. The liturgy will be held in the assembly area at 10am and will be followed by morning tea and some entertainment. If you have a family member attending, could you please bring a plate for morning tea. This is always a very special occasion in the life of our school and we delighted to welcome all grandparents to the day.
On Saturday July 29, our parish is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the dedication of the church building. Mass is at 11am followed by a light luncheon. Some of our Senior class will be involved in this. If you intend joining the celebration, could you please let us know so that we can inform the organisers re catering numbers. I would ask that if you are bringing the children that they are wearing the school uniform.
Our parent portal is up and running and I encourage you to access this. We will have an information session next Tuesday morning at 8.40am to show you the features if you have not already figured them out yourself.
The teachers have begun the interview process and I thank them for their dedication and commitment to this. The time frames are quite short, so if you feel you need more time, please make another appointment. Additionally, if you wish to see me about anything that has been raised, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
We will commence Prep Interviews in the next few weeks and I will be in contact to arrange a suitable time. Even if you have students attending the school already, it is important that you still bring in your prospective prep for a chat as they are their own person. If you know of families who may be considering enrolling their children with us, please ask them to contact the office and we will be delighted to show them around.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 23 - 29 July this year. The theme for this year’s celebrations is: Sharing the Journey. Catholic education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.
There are 302 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 146,000 students and employ more than 18,500 teachers and staff, and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.
