CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Next week, we join with all Catholic Schools in Queensland to celebrate Catholic Education Week. The theme of the week is, “Opening Doors in the Year of Mercy.” We will have a liturgy to launch the week and you are very welcome to attend. This will be held in the assembly area at 9am next Monday, July 25. On Tuesday, four of the Senior students and myself will travel to Mareeba for the Western Deanery Mass. We are hitching a ride on the MSB bus.
Grandparents Day will be celebrated next Friday, July 29. The program is as follows.
9am: Time in classrooms
10am: Liturgy in the church.
10.30am: Morning Tea and Entertainment. (Please bring a plate to share)
Everyone is welcome to join in the fun.
The carnival will be held on Thursday and Friday, July 21 and 22, with the field events and the 800m on the 21st and track events on the 22nd. Just a reminder that we expect that the children sit in their team area and that they must come to school first so that the roll can be marked.
ENROLMENTS FOR 2017
We have begun the enrolment process for Prep in 2017. If you know of families that are intending to enrol a Prep next year, please ask them to contact the office. Interviews will be held early in Term 3. At this stage, we have vacancies in Prep, Year 2 and Year 3 in 2017. This is because we are still to determine the shape and form of the two composite classes.
