Dear Parent and Carers,
Thank you to everyone who was able to come along and support our Swimming Carnival and/or the Opening School Mass.
The students are to be commended on their positive attitude and wonderful behaviour at both events. At the St Patrick's Swimming Carnival everyone got into the spirit of the day and it was fantastic to see students cheering each other on, regardless of which house they were in. It was also very inspiring to see students getting in and giving their best on the day. Year 6 are to be congratulated with leading the way and entering into the spirit of the day by modelling great leadership across the day. Congratulations to our 2019 Swimming Champions and winning house Donovan on a very successful day! Well done to every student for their positive and happy attitude across the day.
Congratulations to our swimming team that competed at the Western Region Carnival in Tumut last Friday.
Each child put in a fantastic effort in the pool in both individual and team relay events. The students are to be congratulated on their excellent behaviour especially their encouragement of one another in the pool. Thank you to parents for their support on the day.
Special congratulations to Charlie Hindmarsh who made it through to the Archdiocesan Carnival to be held in Narooma on Monday 3rd March. Charlie will represent in the Boys 9 years 50m Free, Jun Boyes 20m IM and the Jun Boys 50m Butterfly. Well done Charlie!
Congratulations to all our school leaders who were formally inducted at the Opening School Mass on Friday. This included our School Captains, Year 6 leaders and SRC representatives. The Mass was a lovely celebration to begin our school year. Once again all our students are to be commended on their prayerfulness and respectful participation in the Mass.
This year our Year 6 leaders have been given specific areas of responsibility as leaders.
Sports Specialists: Benny and Alix
Hospitality Hosts: Ella and Molly
Environmental Enthusiasts’: Isaac and Max
Media Moguls: Henry and Lily
Each role comes with specific duties which the students carry out as necessary. Year 6 have embraced these roles enthusiastically and are proving to be very responsible leaders.
Each classroom was busily preparing work and creative pieces for our school display at the Gundagai Show over the weekend. We hope you took the opportunity to come along and see our schools’ presentation.
I'm looking forward to meeting some new faces at this Thursday's Community Council Open Forum.
Best wishes for a happy week,
