We look forward to our upcoming Music Soirees from 5pm till approximately 7:30pm in the Hall on Tuesday June 20 (Drums & Vocal) and Wednesday June 21 (Violin, Keyboard & Guitar). Students who participate in our instrumental program will participate and receive a program from Anita closer to the event/s.
We thank Anita for her coordination and the other instrumental teachers for their involvement.
We have an exciting day coming up next Friday 23rd June, to celebrate Science.
Supreme Incursions will be coming in for the whole day to run some 'silly science' activities for the whole school. Students will also complete science-based activities with their class teachers. Students may come to school dressed as 'mad scientists'. Thankyou to Miss Hart (STEAM Leader) who spoke to the students at this week's assembly. She encouraged students to come dressed as scientists. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the parade that will occur from 9am.
End of Term 2
Children will attend mass on Friday June 30 at Ss. Peter and Paul beginning 9.30am and all families are welcome to attend.
Children will finish school at 1.30pm on this day.
