Good morning and welcome to week 6.

Thank you again to everyone who sent in donations for our prizes for our mission market stall! A huge thanks must also go to Alice Mouritz and to Aaron and Bianca Cass for their assistance during our mission market stall.  It was a huge success and as a school we raise more than $1400!!

School Photos - Is on this Thursday 23rd August. Notes were sent home last week, please check with your child if you have not received them as yet. This is for the online ordering...please also make sure that you collect a form from the office if you would like to have sibling photos taken.

Please make sure that your child comes to school in/with their full winter uniform. This includes the jumper - it is fine if they don't want to wear it during the day but they will need it for the photos.

Major Australian Place – Information Report

Major Australian Place – Information Report
At Home Research and Fact File due – Tuesday 14th August. As part of our learning in Literacy and HASS, students are being asked to choose a major place in Australia and write an information report on this place.
Students will need to complete their research at home under the supervision of a parent and then turn this into a fact file. This ties into our Reading Comprehension strategy of finding the main idea and looking for important details.
Students can choose from one of the following places or a place of their own interest.
Uluru Sydney Harbour Bridge Sydney Opera House The Twelve Apostles Great Barrier Reef Cape York Peninsular Nullarbor Plain Kakadu Blue Mountains Flinders Rangers Bondi Beach Daintree National Park Parliament House Melbourne Perth Sydney Darwin Canberra Adelaide

Week 4

Welcome to week 4.

This week we are focused on becoming experts as we write our informative texts. In reading, we are looking at identifying the key information to also help with our reports.  In maths, we are exploring mass and how we measure and estimate an objects mass.  We will also be exploring number patterns.

In science we are working on how we can estimate and measure temperature.

Mission Markets - Next Wednesday we will be celebrating our Feast Day, commencing with Mass at Our Lady of the Bay. Please see for further information 

Stationery Items - Many students are getting low in their stationery supplies.  Please ask your child in they need any as many students have no glue, exercise books, scissors or pencils.  Also, although stationery such as Smiggle is funky and colourful, please remind your child that is for  completing assigned tasks and should not be a distraction to those around them.


Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Dear Parents,

Over the next couple of weeks, the we are going to participate in an initiative called 'Operation Christmas Child' which aims to pack a shoebox to give to a child who has never received a gift before. This ties into our school value of Compassion as we are helping less fortunate children in need.

Please see below an example of the provided shoe box for Operation Christmas child:

Your child will be grouped with other children to contribute and pack the shoebox. The cost to send a shoe box will be $2.50 per child.  We are asking you to encourage your child to do something extra at home to earn the money that is needed to buy the item to put into the provided shoebox.

To make organisation easier, we will be teaming with Year 3D and Years 4 to 6.  Donations from Year 3M are to be something to wear, with the remaining categories (ie something to love, personal hygiene, etc. provided by the other classes).

Your child will bring home a note which shows the age of the child y…
