Dear Parents and Carers,
St Thomas More Feast Day
We are looking forward to celebrating our Feast Day on Friday. We begin this day with Mass at 9:30am. All parents and carers are warmly invited to attend.
Thank you in advance to the Yr 1 parents who will be cooking the sausage sizzle for lunch. Our activities for the remainder of the day will celebrate Australia’s indigenous culture.
Sacrament of Eucharist
This Sunday at Mass, we celebrate with our Yr 3 students and their families as they receive the Sacrament of Eucharist. They have been working hard for this day and are very prepared to take the next step of initiation into the Catholic Church. Mass is at 9:30am. Thank you to the choir for singing at the Mass. Unfortunately, I am unable to be there on Sunday; I was asked by my niece to be her Confirmation sponsor and so will be travelling to country Victoria this weekend.
Reports go home on Friday. Parent/Teacher Interviews will be in Week 10. Book an appointment online!
Here is a "How to" document to assist you.

Next Wednesday we’re off to Merici for our Athletics’ Carnival. Parents are very welcome to attend or drop by for as long as work commits. We will arrive at Merici College at 9:30am. The Junior classes will leave the Carnival at 12:00pm to make their way back to school. The Yr 3 to 6 students will get on the bus to leave at 1:15pm.
There will be no awards assembly this Friday due to our STM Feast Day Mass.
Congratulations to Daisy Davidson who was welcomed into the Catholic Church last Sunday through the Sacrament of Baptism.
Student Leadership Survey
We are currently reviewing and evaluating our student leadership structure. Currently students in 3-6 appoint two school captains and two house captains per team. Students in Year 6 nominate for the role, write an expression of interest letter to the Principal, prepare a speech and present it in front of their peers.
We welcome and value your feedback and ask that you take a few minutes to complete this survey. Click on the link below.
Save the Date
Our Grandparent’s Day Liturgy is on July 27 at 9am, followed by morning tea.

SVdP Winter Clothing Appeal
If you have good quality winter clothing that is outgrown or not worn anymore, or blankets/doonas/bed linen that are not used, you may want to donate them to the SVdP Winter Clothing Appeal. Bags and a note will be sent home this week (Week 8). Donations can be given to the Front Office until 4 July (Wednesday Week 10).
Winter Woollies for SVdP Night Patrol Van
All classes are invited to donate winter woollies to help support the SVdP Night Patrol Van who are always struggling to have enough to give particularly during winter months (men’s items is what is most needed):
Kinder/Year 1/Year 2 – new socks
3/4 and 5/6 – new gloves
Collection boxes for donations will be placed in each classroom this week (Week 8). If you would prefer to donate a different item than allocated to your class (ie scarves or beanies), that is absolutely fine. All donations will be very gratefully received.
