Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, a Happy Mother’s Day to every family for this weekend and welcome to all of the mother’s attending the school tomorrow.
Our school is unique in the spirit we have developed by giving, rather than receiving at major holidays. As a result, Australia’s main major newspaper, The Catholic Weekly will be celebrating our parent’s Mother’s Day initiative in their edition this weekend.
Thanks so much to our Year 2 team who have been busy coordinating our collection for the Manly Warringah Women’s Resource Centre. We have had many wonderful donations and will provide a full update in the next newsletter.
Our Year 4 parents have started organising one of the most exciting nights of the year for our children, the disco, which will be taking place on Friday 24 June. More information about bookings will be provided soon. Thanks to our great team of volunteers who are working hard to bring this all together.
Thank you so much to all of the families who have participated in the discussions surrounding the purchasing of new playground resources. Our school is a reflection of our community, so it was fantastic to have all the parent’s feedback. In addition, a student survey is being carried out by the school leadership team, so the students can also have their say.
More information to be provided to parents a couple of weeks before voting at the Term 2 General Meeting.
Term 2 P&F General Meeting
– Tuesday, 14 June 2022
We will be joined by a guest speaker Dr Julian Wojtulewicz
a paediatric sleep specialist who will assist in providing parents with tips on how to address issues associated with 21st
century life and a lack of sleep and to answer any questions parents may have.
If you have any agenda items you would like included for discussion at the P&F Meeting, please email them to email@example.com
The Second Hand Uniform Shop is physically open again every Wednesday from 8:30am – 9:30am and from 2:30pm – 3:30pm for parents to call in to buy second hand items.
Alternatively, parents can remain ordering online via the order form
. Once the order is filled, we will phone parents for credit card details and the order will be sent home with the eldest child of the family.
Thank you to everyone who gave donations, bought raffle tickets and congratulations to the winners. Special thanks to the Year 3 co-ordinators of the Easter Raffle
