Dear Members of our Community of Faith,

 

Well the end of the term has arrived! It has been an extremely busy term, but very enjoyable. Well done to the students on all their achievements across this term. The platform is now set and ready to build on over the remaining terms.

 

Athletics Carnival

What a terrific day we had on Wednesday at Alexandra Park and how privileged we are to be able to use such a first class facility. Well done to all our students for their great participation, healthy competition and encouragement of each other. I haven’t been able to walk since deciding to run the 400m, but was glad to be in a race with the ilk of Mr Couture who showed us all how it is done. A special mention to Mrs Wright who took out the Mother’s race amongst some very fierce competition. All in all a very enjoyable and fun-filled day. In the end St John Bosco won with 1767 points ahead of St Francis of Assisi on 1687 points. Congratulations! Across the day 32 records were set. The results will be up early next term for students to see. Well done to all our Age Champions who were presented with medals at our morning assembly on Thursday.

 

Age: 5/6/7 – Georgia Cattell and Patrick Simpson

Age: 8/9 – Jacinta Irwin and Patrick Byrnes

Age: 10/11 – Lucy Wright and Samuel Perry

Age: 12/13 – Anna Bell and Joshua Wright

Age: 14/15 – Rosalee Murphy and Thomas Van Der Horst

Open – Brigid Horsfall and Damien Bell

 

I am very much looking forward to next year’s Carnival. Mr Williams and I are also hoping to atone for our 400m performance with a strong showing in next term’s Cross Country, so will be hitting the training track with vigour.

 

Lost Property

Please check your children’s school clothing items to ensure they belong to your family. We have a number of children missing clothing items and they may have been mistakenly picked up and taken to the wrong home! Thank you.

 

Yr.7/8 TAS Market Day

Well done to the 7/8s on running such a successful Market Day yesterday. Thank you to everyone for their support of their business ventures. The students were all very grateful.

 

 

Interim Reports

Teachers have completed the Interim Reports and these will be mailed out to families early in the holidays. If you have any concerns, please make a time to meet with your child’s teacher early next term.

 

Classroom Support

Each Thursday Miss Rebecca Noll will be working in the Yr.3/4 Room. She is studying a Certificate III in Education Support and is at SMMC to fulfil the volunteer hours necessary for her course. Welcome to SMMC.

 

Reading to your children

Please remember to read to your children over the break. Modelling good reading and a love of literature is a great gift to your child. Getting your children to read aloud to you is also very important, so they can build on the skills they have been working on across this term. Happy reading!

 

Each class spent some time adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament today, which was a great way to finish the term. May we always strive to keep Jesus at the centre of all we do. I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe, happy and restful break away. See you back on the school yard in two weeks’ time. The Staff are back on deck on Tuesday 26th April and students will resume on Wednesday 27th April.

 

Thank you to all our families for their support across this term. Enjoy the extra time with your children these holidays.

 

God Bless

 

Luke Burton

Principal
