Dear Members of our Community of Faith,

Thank you to all Parents who were able to attend and show their support at our Parent Evening last Friday 15th March. We thank Bishop Umbers for a wonderful evening and inspirational talk.  Students also enjoyed Bishop Umbers being able to give them separate Primary and Secondary talks on Friday afternoon.

After school, Students catching buses are asked to please wait under the covered area next to the new administration building in their bus lines, where a supervising teacher will be on duty. We have had several students miss their buses due to being in the wrong place when the bus has departed.

Athletics Carnival- Tuesday 9th April 9am

Our school Athletics Carnival is coming up on Tuesday 9th, April. Please return permission and volunteer notes as soon as you can. Parents please note that students do not come to school on this day. Students are required to be dropped off by 9am and picked up by 3.20pm at the Carnival. The Carnival is at the previously named ‘Alexandra Park’ – it’s now called the ‘Les O’Brien Athletics Precinct’ – fortunately it’s still in Cadell Street East Albury and we have attached a map to this newsletter.

St. Patrick’s Day

On Monday 18th, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. Students were able to wear green accessories and enjoyed cupcakes made by the SRC. In the afternoon the school enjoyed a small concert and watched some Irish dancing by some of our very talented students. Over $170 was raised for Project Compassion from the SRC’s excellent cupcake sales!

On Wednesday we were lucky to have a visit from a group of seminarians from Wagga. We thank them for putting on a lovely lunch for all the students, and for coming down and visiting our students.
