Thanks to everyone
Thank you to all of our students, staff and parents for your valued contributions to our teaching and learning this term. We have achieved so much together and we are looking forward to continuing developing our learning relationships next term. Make sure you watch Miss Hull's end of term video with the children sharing some of their learning highlights further down below in this week's newsblog.

Thanks to everyone who completed the end of term learning surveys. We have received some valuable information to inform our practices for next term and will share some of the feedback with you.
Names from all of the respondents were entered into a draw. Congratulations to Aedrick Perez (Yr 5), Mr Moore and Melissa Davison who won the prizes.

On the the first Friday of the term, the students have organised a sausage sizzle and mufti day for the Vanuatu appeal. You can read more about the school canteen further down in this blog.Please note that there was an error in the order forms, the filled rolls are $3.50 not $1.50.

Easter blessings
During Holy Week we remember Jesus' final days and his crucifixion. This Sunday is Easter Sunday when we celebrate Jesus' resurrection.  Easter blessing to your family and friends. We look forward to welcoming you back to school next term on Monday 20th April when we continue to "Reach for the Stars as Lifelong Learners in the Catholic Faith."
