1. What's new ? Principal's updates for Week 8 2015

Learning and Change surveys
As we come to the end of our first term, we will be gathering feedback from students, staff and families about their experiences with learning this term. We would love to hear from you as parents. Please complete this short survey and go into the draw for a $25 petrol voucher.
You can access it via this link 

National Networking Hui information
We are in to our third year of participating in our learning and change network.We have been invited to attend and share some of our learning in Auckland at the start of the July holidays. If any families are interested in participating, please let me know or email me

Vanuatu Fundraiser
Some of our children are to be commended for truly wanting to support the families who have lost their homes and possessions as a result of Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu. Some of the Year 7 children are organising a mufti day and a sausage sizzle on our first Friday back next term (24th April). We will send home more information in Week 1 next term.

Drop your children off safely
Please think about road safety when you are dropping your children off and picking them up. Please park on the school side of the road or drop your children off at the drop and drive zone. If you use the Parish car park, please make sure that your children walk along the footpath and into school via the main entrance pathway beside the hall rather than through the staff car park. There have been some near misses with children running through the car park or running across the road to your car or from your car. We must think of the safety of our children at all times.

When picking up or dropping off your children
  • Ensure children get in and out on the footpath side of the car.
  • Park safely, away from yellow lines, intersections and driveways.
  • Drive slowly outside schools and be prepared for surprises.
  • Never double park outside a school.
  • Walk to the school gate with your children in the mornings.
  • After school, walk to the school gate to meet your children and walk them to the car.
  • Take extra care on wet days.

Staff thank you breakfast
Our hardworking staff shared a special end of term breakfast this morning to recognise the awesome job they do at our school. Thank you to our wonderful supportive team of staff.

Holy Thursday liturgy next week
We will finish the first term with a Holy Thursday liturgy that will commence in the hall at 2:30pm and move out to the playground. We look forward to preparing for Holy Week with you as we Reach for the Stars as Lifelong Learners in the Catholic Faith.
