The Family Fun Day began with a liturgy held by the Prep classes to celebrate "Family'. Following the liturgy, the students, Mums, Dads and grandparents participated in a range of activities including skipping, kite and paper hat making, icing biscuits and a range of inside and outside activities. The smile on everyone's faces was a testament of a wonderful morning had by all. Thank you to everyone who made it a great success.

The Trish Nash Memorial Garden will be blessed and dedicated to the memory of Trish Nash this Thursday at approximately 10:30am (following the Gr 6 class Mass). Any parents and friends of the school are warmly invited. The garden is along the Jack Street side of the Library. The garden will be a reminder to all of Trish's presence within this school community and her example of Christian service. This will be immortalised in the dedication plaque which will have that she held close to heart: "Go preach the Gospel at all time; if necessary, use words."

Final Meeting & Special Guest - Our last committee meeting for the term is this Wednesday 16th at 6.00pm in the school staff room.
