As you might know last Friday the 17/03/2017 was St. Patrick’s day and I am very grateful for Mr Hopley for allowing us to wear the green of St Patrick on our mufti day for a gold coin donation. We raised so much money for project compassion - $1,076 and I’m so grateful because there are only 800 students in the school and I am very thankful to have raised this much. The day was a big hit and the children loved it and I loved it too. Sincerely Luke Griffin Year 6 student and proud Irish/Australian!
In Term 1 and Term 2 Year Five are learning about Early Australia and its impact on our development as a nation. To complement the learning in this unit Year 5 attended an excursion to Hyde Park Barracks. The Hyde Park Barracks offered a program entitled Life at the Barracks: Convicts and Migrants. This program allowed the students to travel back in time in Australia and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of life as a convict during the colonisation of Australia
The proposed new Enterprise Agreement was sent to all Catholic school staff and the Independent Education Union (IEU) today, Monday 7 April to begin a process of consultation to consolidate a number of existing agreements into a single state-wide agreement which supports high quality contemporary teaching and learning.
