Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to Term 4. I am sure it is going to be a busy one!
I had a wonderful 5 weeks of long service leave in Greece. A large part of the trip was a pilgrimage following the footsteps of St Paul and the early Church through Greece and Turkey. It was an incredible experience to visit the places where St Paul wrote his letters to the early Christians. Highlights included the House of Mary in Turkey, where it is believed Mary spent the later years of her life and the Church of St Lydia in Greece where it was believed the first Christians were baptised. The first person to be baptised was a woman called Lydia. I will be sharing many of these experiences with staff and students in coming weeks.
We can all look forward to many exciting activities over the coming months, especially excursions, Shakespeare and our end of year celebrations. The Kinder Nativity is always a highlight!
SCHOOL APP - ZApp
We have now moved to the ZApp for all communication. We will no longer be using the Skoolbag App for any communication.
Congratulations to Shane and Laura Eickenloff on the birth this week of baby Frederick George Eickenloff 'Freddie'. The little family os doing well.
A reminder that Summer Uniform has officially commenced. A reminder that sports shoes should be predominately white and that black leather school shoes are an essential item of uniform. Hats are to also be worn as the ‘No Hat, Play in the Shade ‘ rule now applies.
Have a great week
