Around the Primary

Dear Parents,

It was a very happy night for the very proud parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters and staff who filled Roncalli Hall to capacity to view the Year 4 Musical, 'Cinderella & Rockerfella'. It was wonderful to see the students sharing their talents on the stage and enjoying themselves too! To the great credit of our Primary Music Specialist, Mrs Shelley Morell, the young cast were able to sing, dance, recite their lines with confidence and engage the audience in a most delightful way. Congratulations Mrs Morell!

We also congratulate the Year 4 children who have worked very hard over two terms to put together their amazing musical. We are so proud of their outstanding performances and commitment to the musical. I'm sure 'Cinderella & Rockerfella' will be retained as a highlight of the Year 4's Primary school life.

Thank you to the parents for ensuring that your children were able to attend rehearsals. A big thank you to all the parents who assisted with making the gorgeous costumes and organizing the amazing make-up for the dress rehearsal, matinee and evening performance.

Special thanks to Miss Nish and Ms O'Connor for their enthusiasm and commitment to the production of the musical.

We can now look forward to our Interschool Athletics Carnival on Monday 14 September.

Kind regards
Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary

OPEN NIGHT

Our Primary Open Night is on Monday 21 September from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. All classrooms will be available for parents to visit and to celebrate with your children their learning journey. Feel free to browse every room not just your own child's classroom because there are wonderful things to see in every space of the school. Please extend the welcome to your wider family, it would be great to see grandparents too. Please note that the Open Night is not an occasion for a brief teacher interview about your child's progress. The staff need to be available to everyone visiting their classrooms. From 5:00pm onwards you might like to make way to the MacKillop Room or Library to experience some of the musical talents from our students.

FATHER'S DAY CELEBRATIONS

Last Friday morning was such a great event for all our Fathers with over 150 Dads in the Chapel. The Year 11 students prepared delicious muffins and a freshly ground coffee or tea for the Dads and a treat with a fruit juice drink for the children. Thank you to Mrs Bloodworth and the Year 11's for the magnificent muffins. A big thank you to our volunteer Mums who served our guests and did the big clean up. Special thanks to the Men of John XXIII for supporting this event.

The greatest thanks of course must go to our Dads - it was great to see you all turn out and be recognised for the work you do all year round to love and care for your children.
