"I PRAY THAT GOD, THE SOURCE OF HOPE, WILL FILL YOU COMPLETELY WITH JOY AND PEACE BECAUSE YOU TRUST IN HIM. THEN YOU WILL OVERFLOW WITH CONFIDENT HOPE THROUGH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT." Romans 15:13
We wish all the students in our Parish who are receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation over the weekend a memorable and powerful experience. We keep them and their families in our Prayers.
R U OK?
This year in the build-up to R U OK?Day we’re encouraging everyone to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK?
We want everyone to feel confident they know the signs someone might need support by listening to what they’re saying, seeing what they’re doing or knowing what’s going on in their life. Whenever you notice a change, no matter how small, we want you to trust your gut and start an R U OK? conversation. All classes spoke about the meaning of today and the importance to always check in on our friends.

Thank you to all the students and families at SJV for their generous support last week for the Great Book Swap. The students really enjoyed picking out a bargain book or two!
The students raised a fantastic $252.00 which will help gift 35,000 new books for children in remote Indigenous communities.
It would be appreciated if the students who took a book home last week and still need to make a donation, please bring in a gold coin to give to Ms Heath.
All remaining books will be passed on to the Fete book stall.
A big congratulations to the following students:
Please note - Merit Awards will be handed out at NEXT Friday's morning assembly.
The Turtles and Stingrays had an exciting Bus Wash excursion on Monday 9 September. They learned about public transport and about travelling safely. They went to the bus depot, where the buses go to be repaired, washed and to rest when they’re not on the road. They drove past the police station and the fire station and the they played lots of games along the way. Parents, be prepared for endless games of ‘spotto’ and some driving advice from the backseat when you’re out in your car from now on! The Lobsters are looking forward to their bus adventure tomorrow.
Floriade – The ELC children have be busy painting their gnomes to send to Gnome Knoll at Floriade. Gnomes are $12 each and support the Rotary Club of Canberra. This excursion cost has been added to your statement. The Stingrays will take a bus trip to explore Floriade (and visit their gnomes) on Monday 16 September and the Turtles and Lobsters will go on Thursday 19 September. Permission notes are on the school website. Parent helpers are very welcome. Please contact your class teacher if you are able to come along.
ELC Holiday Care – The ELC Holiday Care Program will run during the October school holidays. The program will run from from 8am to 5:30pm from Monday 30 September to Friday 11 October (minus the public holiday on Monday 7th). The program is full of fun and engaging activities and excursions. Information and booking sheets are on the school website and bookings are due next Thursday 19 September.
Transition to School Parent Forum – As we quickly approach the end of Term 3, the reality of transitioning to Kindergarten starts to become more real. A Transition to School Parents Forum is being held on Tuesday 17 September at 7pm at the Hedley Beare Centre in Stirling. To register (or request a podcast) email email@example.com. More information is available from the ELC.
ELC Fees – The final fees for Term 3 are due tomorrow, Friday 13 September. Could you please check your accounts and ensure that all term fees are up to date. Please note that Holiday Care Bookings will not be accepted from families with outstanding fees.

After many years looking after the school banking, we are both moving on to different things at the end of the year.
Is there anyone in the school community that would like to take on this role? It takes about 45 minutes per week, and if the role is shared between 2 or 3 people, this would only be once every 2 or 3 weeks. Banking usually comes into the school on Thursday and is completed by Friday afternoon, however this could be changed if another day is more suitable. The bank has a co-ordinator who provides support and a very helpful help desk for ongoing support.
It would be great to hear from anyone who is interested, so we can get you registered and we can spend a bit of time showing you the ropes. Please give us a call if you have any questions – we’ll be happy to have a chat or send a note in with your contact details if you are interested in taking on the role and we’ll be in touch.
