Newsletter Week 10 – Term 3, 2023


Principal Message


I would firstly like to thank Mrs Caridi and Miss Luscombe for their dedication and support in preparing our students for the sacrament of Confirmation. Their commitment to nurturing their faith and guiding them on this spiritual journey is wonderful. The Confirmation Mass had a sense of reverence and joy that filled our church. It was evident that our students were well-prepared, both spiritually and emotionally, for this significant step in their faith journey. 

 I would like to extend a special acknowledgment to the student choir for their outstanding performance during the Confirmation Mass. Their voices filled the church with a sense of grace and harmony. Their dedication and talent were truly remarkable, and we are immensely proud of their contribution to this memorable occasion. 

Athletics Carnival

What an extraordinary day we experienced during our Athletics Carnival! I felt an overwhelming sense of pride witnessing the dedication and sportsmanship displayed by all our students as they enthusiastically cheered on their peers.  I want to extend gratitude to Mr. B, whose exceptional organizational skills and meticulous coordination ensured an amazing day. His tireless efforts in preparing the students played a great role in making this day a resounding success. As Mr. B often says, our Athletics Carnival works so well because of the outstanding commitment and contributions of our remarkable staff. I'd also like to give a special thankyou to the parent volunteers who played an invaluable role in setting up, dismantling, and supporting the carnival in various ways. Your dedication and hard work are truly appreciated. 

Music Night

It is with immense joy that we were able to celebrate the remarkable talent and dedication of our students who recently took centre stage during the Choir and Instrumental Band Music Night. Our school choirs, led by the talented Mrs Reedman and Mrs Reid enchanted the audience with their angelic voices. Their passion for music was evident as they all shone brightly on stage. Equally impressive was our instrumental band, under the guidance of Mr Coleman. Our young musicians transported the audience through a range of emotions. It was heart warming to see our students collaborating and supporting each other, both on and off the stage.

Annual Community Meeting 

Our Annual Community Meeting will be held on Monday 6th November at 6pm in the Hall. This will be a combination of the School Advisory Council and P&F. All parents are encouraged to attend. 



I wish everyone a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We will see you on Tuesday the 10th October. 


God Bless

Many Gifts, One Spirit Award

Congratulations to our most recent Many Gifts, One Spirit Award recipients in acknowledgement of showing the school value of Excellence during Term 3, 2023:


Saisha is always striving for excellence. She puts 110% into all her subjects. The work Saisha does is efficient and detailed. Once she’s done that, Saisha tries to help people around her too! She does more than the minimum; Saisha pushes herself further and aims to extend herself. Saisha does all she can to grow in her abilities and isn’t afraid to try new things. Saisha makes good choices and decisions both in the classroom and out. We are proud of Saisha's ethic and efforts, and her drive for personal excellence.



Hailey's unwavering dedication and commitment to achieving excellence in all her endeavours are truly commendable. Her positive work ethic serves as an inspiration to us all, and her willingness to go above and beyond to help others is a testament to her kindness and generosity. Hailey, your outstanding qualities have not only earned you this award but have also enriched our classroom in countless ways. Thank you for setting a remarkable example of diligence and excellence. You are truly deserving of this honour.
