FEAST DAY OF ST THERESE
On Friday 15th September we celebrate the Feast Day of St Therese of Lisieux for whom our school and parish have been named. Mrs Ball has prepared a wonderful day for the students and the programme is included in the newsletter. You are very welcome to join us if you wish. There is cake!!
Yesterday our assembly area looked like a casting couch for any number of movies as we held our annual book week parade. The children looked wonderful due no doubt to some creative work on your part. Thank you for your attendance and thanks also to the staff who took part in the fun.
The annual Torimba parade will be held on Saturday 14th October and we have already submitted our entry. If you have any ideas which would enhance this entry, please contact the school. The theme is Country and Western and we would like to put a creative spin on that.
The next P&F Meeting will be held on Monday 23rd October at 4.30pm in the staffroom.
Interviews for our prep 2018 class commenced on Monday. Our transition to Prep programme will be very structured, with our prospective students attending four classroom sessions. We have data from the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) which measures how children in Australia have developed by the time they start their first year of full-time school. The census measures against the following domains;Physical health and wellbeing, Social competence, Emotional maturity,
Language and cognitive skills (school-based) and Communication skills and general knowledge.
