Community News & Events
This week we are celebrating Book Week with the theme "Connect to Reading". Last night we had storytelling in the library and it was great to have the opportunity to share a story with such a receptive audience. During the week the students will be participating in our Readers' Cup challenge which will see students tested as to how well they engaged with selected stories. This Wednesday is our Dress Up Parade and I know many children have been keenly looking forward to the chance to dress up as a character from their favourite book. Over the course of the week we will also have our Book Fair in the library: drop in and take a look at what's on offer!
Will be held on Thursday, 11 September in the Hall. Cost is $5 per child or $8 for a family (2
or more children).
Junior Disco for Prep to Year 3 will be held from 5-6pm.
Senior Disco for students in Year 4-7 will be held from 6pm - 7.30pm.
First Communion -Preparation Sessions continue this coming Sunday after 8am Mass. Please
spend some time with your child during this week discussing and completing the workbook
up to the "Last Supper" section. Also, please practise the reception of communion with your
child. There is a description for this process in the booklet.
Caring Hearts –There is always someone in our community who is need of some assistance –
whether it be a home cooked meal, transport to or from school, home help or babysitting.
We are very keen to establish a group of parents to become providers of assistance or

contact the office. These calls for assistance will be kept confidential. If you wish to be a
participant in this community group please let me or the office know.

BOOK WEEK: 18th - 22nd August
Our Book Week activities will be held this year in week 6 (Aug 18th – 22nd)
The theme for Book Week this year is Connect to Reading. There will be the usual favourites:
We will be holding our Annual Carnival Book Fair during Book Week. There will be a large variety of books for sale at prices to suit everyone. This is a wonderful opportunity to buy some great books and help the Library gain new resources as the school receives 25% – 30% of the total sales as our Commission.
If you have a spare 15/20 minutes before or after school that week, we would certainly appreciate your help in the running of the Book Fair.
