Around the Primary

Dear Parents

We had perfect picnic weather for our Primary Picnic last Saturday. Thank you to all the parents who assisted in a variety of ways. Special thanks to Kristin Serra, Paula Hackett, Ric Del Pizzo and Wayne Burke for all their hard work behind the scenes. A great time was had by all and it is through events like this that we realise what a fantastic community spirit we have at John XXIII College.

Family Picnic

All families are welcome to come along to our Open Day tomorrow, Saturday 16th March. This is the ideal opportunity to find out more about the College's Secondary facilities and programs and also see our new gym in action. Tours will be held every half hour from 9-11.30am.

There are a number of unclaimed items in the Lost Property Box outside the Mary Ward Centre. Please come and check if any of these items belong to your family. Any unclaimed items will be donated to the Uniform shop at the end of next week. Just a reminder, please label all your child's belongings.

At Mass today our wonderful Year 6 students all received their leadership badges. Congratulations to all our Year 6 leaders and we look forward to seeing you sharing your gifts and talents with our College community in the year head.

Kind regards

Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary
