COLOURFUL SHIRT DAY - WEDNESDAY 30th JULY
Students will be allowed to wear a colourful shirt to express the theme "Come, live life in all its fullness" for Catholic Education Week. Students will be asked to bring in a gold coin donation. Coins will be collected by our Mini Vinnies members, and all donations will then be given to our local St Vincent De Paul Society to be used for needy people in our local community.
CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 27 July - 2 August this year.
This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day.
The theme for this year's celebrations is: Come, live life in all its fullness. This inspirational call is based on the Gospel of John (10:10), challenging those who answer it to "live fully".
Our school is planning a number of activities during the week and we hope you are able to join in the celebrations with us.
UNDER 8'S DAY
On Friday 27th June we held our annual Under 8's Celebration.
The weather held on for us to enjoy a fun filled morning. We would like to thank all who were involved in the activities. Without your assistance the morning would not have been possible.
Family Soup Night - Friday 8th August,
