We hope you have been able to enjoy some sabbath time this week.
This weekend the Church celebrates the end of the Liturgical Year with the Feast of Christ the King, also called the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.
We pray to You, Lord,
in the great expectation of receiving from You,
O Divine King, mercy, peace, justice and all good things.
Protect, O Lord our King, our families.
Guard us, we pray.
Reports and Parent/Teacher Interviews
As stated in earlier communication the Semester 2 reports will not include general comments and will only have grades for three areas of the curriculum, English, Mathematics and Religious Education.
We are very aware that remote learning was a different experience for each family and student so feel that it is extremely important that parents/guardians avail themselves of the opportunity to discuss their child/ren’s learning and progress with their classroom teacher. Each teacher has allocated times for parent/teacher interviews next year.
Take care and keep safe

Semester 2 Parent-Teacher Interviews 22nd-26th November

- If a second parent wishes to join the meeting from an extra device, please make sure you enter their email address in the optional parent email field.

Once the teacher has your appointment time, they will create a meeting in MS TEAMS and send an invitation to you via the email address(es) you nominated. Please accept this invitation.
The teacher will start the MS TEAMS meeting. Interviews are 15 minutes only. If you need more time with a particular teacher, please make arrangement with them.

Ride Safely to School Week
Ride Safely to School Week has been developed to give schools the opportunity to reinforce safety messages around cycling while encouraging students to ride to school.
We recognise the importance of kids getting the recommended 60 mins of physical activity everyday, and that while riding your bike it’s just as important to be safe on the streets.
Prayer and Reflection Resources
These prayer and reflection resources are for all families to find comfort, connection to faith and reassurance in these unsettling times. We encourage our school community to set aside time for personal and family prayer.
