Thank you to all the families who helped staff celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day. The gifts, messages and recognition was very much appreciated.
Day of Many Colours
Such a wonderful day yesterday as we celebrated a day of colour and raised money for the Catholic Missions who are this year supporting schools in Ghana who ensure all children receive an education, despite their disabilities. Well done to all our children for their participation in our Side Show Alley and Coulour Run.
An awesome day was had by all.

A big congratulations to the following students:
Please note - Merit Awards will be handed out at NEXT Friday's morning assembly.
It was a windy but fun day at the last Catholic Schools Netball Carnival on Saturday. Three SJV teams competed and came away with many wins.
Thank you to the coaches, managers, umpires, scorers, parents, siblings, principal and teachers that cheered and encouraged our teams on the day.
Thank you to the girls in all the teams who were a delight and great ambassadors for our school.
