COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
WELCOME BACK FAMILY PICNIC NIGHT and INFORMATION SESSIONS
Our first community event for the year is the Welcome Back Picnic Night, which will be held on Friday 15th February from 5.00 – 7.30pm. This year we are including information sessions in the classrooms for parents of students in years 1 – 4.
- Year 3/4 teachers will be presenting information for parents between 5.00 and 5.30pm
- Year 1/2 teachers will be presenting information for parents between 5.30 and 6.00pm
Teachers in other year levels will supervise children during these sessions with games in the playground so that parents can attend. Year 5/6 Information session will be held on Monday 18th February at 3.45pm. The session will be recorded so those unable to attend can view it online. Teachers will send details via the class news.
The Pizza Oven will be fired up so you can bring your own pizza to cook. The BBQs will be available if you would like to bring your own meat. You can pack your own picnic dinner – keep it simple or go all out. Some tables are available near the pizza oven. The soccer field will be reserved for picnic rugs and chairs. Come along and catch up with those you know, meet those you don’t and extend a welcome to our new families.
Open Afternoon On Wednesday 13th March we will celebrate Catholic Education Week with an open afternoon where you are invited to come along between 2.15 and 4.30 to see displays and activities showcasing some of the exciting work being done in class and in our specialist programs.
Parent teacher interviews will be held on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th March. You will have the opportunity to book your time on line from the beginning of March. Look out for this information in your class news email. If you are not receiving classroom news via email – please advise your child’s class teacher.
WESTERN BULLDOGS and ST KILDA VISIT
We were fortunate to have Jackson McRae and Ed Richards from the Western Bulldogs visit on Tuesday to talk to our 5/6 students and have a kick with our students. The week prior we had Seb Ross, Jade Gresham, Jack Sinclair and Josh Battle from the St Kilda FC also visit and speak to our 1/2 grades. The following day the 3/4 students attended a clinic with the full playing list in attendance at the Rosebud FC. A much remembered experience I’m sure. I’ve asked Mr.Koole to investigate getting Collingwood here next year……
