Dear Parents and Carers,
National Children’s Week
Live so that
think of fairness, caring
they think of you
This week the nation celebrates Children’s week, a time to focus on the rights of children in the world.
The theme of Children’s Week 2019 is the right of every child to good health and wellbeing.
Article 24 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that all children are entitled to “the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health and to facilities for the treatment of illness and rehabilitation of health”. The right to health is particularly important for children, because their developing brains and bodies can make them more vulnerable to certain health conditions. If they are not healthy, children face barriers to claiming many other basic rights – like being able to learn, play and reach their full potential, as they grow into adults.
Megan Mitchell, National Children’s Commissioner
This weekend we celebrated Mission Sunday in all our Churches. As Christians, we all have a mission: to share God’s love with the whole world. No one is too young or too small to take part. Through Mission, children everywhere can pray for and share with one another in a unique exchange of love and friendship. By praying for one another and sharing what we have, we belong to God’s worldwide family. Pope Francis has designated October 2019 an Extraordinary Month of Mission. Its objective: to renew the efforts of the entire Church to share God’s love around the world.
On Friday afternoon at our whole school Assembly Mr Mitchell and 3/4 W introduced our Term 4 value Compassion and brought to our attention our role during this Month of the Missions. The children combined these two ideas beautifully and invited us to go out into the world and make a difference.
Take some time to talk as a family about the ways in which each one of us can make a difference in the world by small acts of kindness and prayer.
As part of the Month of Missions Stage 3 students have been leading classes in praying the Rosary.

National Ride Safely to School Week 28 Oct – 1 Nov 2019
It's that time of term when we whip out the lycra and jump on the bike to promote healthy lifestyles.
Week 3 is National Ride Safely to School Week and we have a few great things on!
Everyday at morning assembly we will highlight the important safety aspect for all our budding riders to help them take charge of their own safety when riding their bikes to and from school. Riders will be given double raffle tickets in the mornings for our raffle draw at assembly, children are reminded that they must seek out the teacher with the tickets.
Tuesday lunchtimes our Wheels Club will continue and we would love as many people to participate as possible! Cycling lessons as part of Stage 2 Sport will be on as usual as well.
Friday will be our whole school community event where we will meet at our normal walk and ride stations (see the giant map at the back of the school for locations) at 8:20am and ride in groups to school. At school we will have fruit for a healthy snack upon arrival and some pumping music to welcome you! Robert from the Trek store in Phillip will be joining us again to be part of the celebrations of our healthy and active week and will be bringing along some wonderful prizes he has donated. All participating students will receive their name in the draw for one of these great prizes!
This week is not just for students but is a great way for parents to take advantage of the wonderful weather and share in the joy and health benefits that cycling provides.
All hail the power of the pedal!
