YEAR 4 GARDENERS
Congratulations to our Year 4 students, teachers and parents for the wonderful work that has been done on two gardens in the school over this last term. Last Friday they completed the term of work improving those gardens. For those who have not seen the gardens they have improved the garden beside the blue basketball court. They have worked over the term by improving the soil for plants and then painting their class colours along the edge of these gardens. They have also improved and extended the Mary MacKillop Memorial Gardens at the end of the Penola Centre. They included in this garden a special Friendship Seat. This seat is intended for students who feel they need a friend to play with at that time. The idea is for other students to see them and invite them to play. A great idea from the Year 4 classes.
GOLDEN AWARD MORNING & AFTERNOON TEA
Mr Badke, Mrs Martin and I have had the pleasure of hosting our Gold Award winning students at morning tea for the younger children and afternoon tea for our older children. It was great to spend time with these students and celebrate their success. I would like to especially thank Mrs Martin for all the work she put into organising the invitations, catering and hosting these celebrations.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS APPEAL - Reminder
I'm sure that many of you have begun to prepare for the upcoming Christmas season. As we make our own preparations we are encouraged to think of those who may be doing it tough. This year, once again, the Our Lady of Lourdes School community will be collecting items for Christmas hampers which will be distributed by the St Vincent de Paul Society. Please send along non-perishable food items for these Christmas hampers. As well as everyday grocery items, you are encouraged to send along some special Christmas treats e.g. Christmas pudding, tinned hams, Christmas cake, confectionary, snacks and other special delicacies. These items will be placed in collection baskets located in each classroom. Thank you for your generosity!
LAST DAY OF 2015 SCHOOL YEAR
This is a special reminder that school will close for the Christmas holidays on Friday 4th December at 12:00 pm. This is the only day in the whole year that we finish before 2:55 pm. Students will need to know how they are going home on that last day of the year. Should they be attending OSHC it is absolutely necessary to arrange this booking in advance to allow OSHC to ensure that they have enough staff on site.
2016 SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM
Students who will be in Year 3 in 2016 (or above) are eligible to take part in the program. Parents who wish to enrol their child in the 2016 Sacramental Programme need to ring the parish office for an interview with Sr Stella.
