Dear Members of our Community of Faith,
I hope you are surviving the winter weather. Whilst the mornings have been a bit icy, the beautiful sunny days that unfold afterwards are quite magnificent and a real signature of the wonderful area we live in.
The next subcommittee meeting for the Gala Dinner and Fete will be held next Wednesday 14th June at 2:30pm. Just a reminder to please return the form indicating if you are able to assist with approaching businesses to seek donations for these two big fundraisers. We will need to get underway with this in the very near future.
We will hold Primary Parent/Teacher interviews on Wednesday 21st June from 3:30pm – 6:30pm. Please fill in the attached form to indicate your preferred times. If these times do not suit, please contact the classroom teacher to organise an alternative time.
Term 2 Parent Evening
Please mark Tuesday 20th June down for our Term 2 Parent Evening beginning at 7:30pm. Sam Clear will be our guest speaker.
Just a reminder that the Lost Uniform bin is full! Please check that your children have all their uniform items. Please also check that your children do not have another child’s uniform item as we have had a number of jumpers and the like disappear. Thank you for your assistance.
Can you help?
I am seeking assistance in making Religious Education materials for Primary Classrooms in line with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd method of teaching. The main areas looked at are scripture, the sacraments and moral formation. Being both spiritual and concrete beings, we use what is concrete to access what is spiritual. First we must use our senses to try and understand it (BODY), then we must be won over by it (HEART) and finally commit it to memory and integrate
with what we know already (MIND). The Year 7/8 TAS Class made some very impressive materials last term to get us started, but there is still much to do. If you are able to help out with any of the following sorts of tasks please let me know: laminating, painting of wooden figures, timber construction and sewing. Many of these tasks can be undertaken at home if that is more feasible for you. Just send me an email at email@example.com to let me know and I’ll get in touch with you. Below are some examples of materials made by the Year 7/8s in TAS during Term One. The first is the City of Jerusalem made by Mikhail Firmager and Sam Irwin and the second is the Empty Tomb made by Anna Bell.
Thanks to the Queen, this coming weekend is a long one, so there will be no school on Monday 12th June. A nice little breather before tackling the last two weeks of term together. Have a wonderful long weekend!
God Bless, Luke Burton (Principal)
