We'll see you at the Bush dance this Friday night 6th March. The night begins at 6:00pm and concludes at 9:00pm. This P&F event is an excellent way to meet new friends. Come along and enjoy a burger and a dance.
COMPUTERS AND IPADS
Finally we have been able to begin the roll out of our Ipads and laptop computers into the classrooms. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Payne, Mrs Keaveney-Jones and Mrs O'Brien for the hours they have spent preparing these devices for classroom use. I would also like to thank the P and F for their support in funding these new devices.
Each year level at Our Lady of Lourdes School will take part in an activity to raise money for Project Compassion during Lent.
Year 1 - The theme for Project Compassion this year is "Food for Life". Year One children we will be learning about how Project Compassion helped a family in Fiji make their farm more sustainable by knowing what to plant.
The children are invited to bring money to put in the Project Compassion Box, which is on the prayer table, during Lent (starting this Wednesday until the end of the term). Each time the class accumulates $5 we will plant a bean seed, put it on the window sill and watch it grow.
To help your child's growing awareness of the Lenten Journey, please encourage your child to earn the money either by helping at home by doing jobs, or by doing without some treat and donating the money instead.
P&F WORKING BEE
The P&F will be holding a Working Bee to tidy up our gardens on Sunday 8th March from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Please bring wheelbarrows, garden tools, etc. We cannot use motorised items such as chainsaws unless the operator is able to provide certificates to show approved training. Please meet in the Penola Centre – and remember to sign on when you arrive and sign off before departure. This allows us to know that all are accounted for should there be an emergency. Children are welcome provided they are supervised. No children are to be at the Working Bee if unsupervised (WHS Requirement).
