Around the Primary

Dear Parents,

One of the most distinctive features of a Catholic School Education is the integration of the Sacramental Program into the school curriculum. At Mass today we celebrated and prayed for all the students who have received the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation this year.

Thank you to Ms O'Connor and the students from Year 4 for organising today's lovely Mass.

A reminder to all families that our College Presentation Night will take place on Monday 2nd December at 7pm. All students from Year 4-6 are expected to attend this event. The students need to meet their teacher in the Exhibition Centre before the night begins. Our Year 5 students and some secondary students are going to provide some wonderful entertainment on the night.

Teachers are currently finalising students' reports. These will be mailed home in the week beginning 16th December. You are most welcome to contact class teachers before the end of the term if you have any questions about your child's progress this semester.

Next Monday 2nd December the staff and students will be participating in a transition session at 11 am. This is a special time when the students meet their teacher and class mates for the new year. Parents will receive notification about class allocation on Monday afternoon.

Next Friday, 6th December the PrePrimary will be hosting the final assembly of the year. The young children are so excited about sharing their Christmas assembly with the rest of the school community. Everyone is welcome!

We look forward to seeing many parents at our Social Dance next Thursday 5th December afternoon.

As we commence the season of Advent on Sunday, please donate a Christmas surprise to the St Vinnie's Appeal. Donations can be placed in classroom boxes.

Kind Regards

Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary

The Year 3 children have been learning about Parables in their Religious Education lessons. Stella Morgan and James Green
used their iPad session very creatively to make this wonderful illustration.
