Assistant Principal News
What a term! Term 3 saw momentous events occur. We had numerous masses, the students continued to visit Aegis Aged Care, students participated in Catholic Performing Arts and were acknowledged for their talents, Jumps and Throws Day along with a cold Athletics Day where students tried their best, we all flashed our pearly whites for school photos, we were blessed with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, we raised money for Mercy Sisters, the Pre Primary visited the zoo, Year 1 and Year 2 had a visit from the West Oz Wildlife. Open Night included the URstrong Workshop and the students did a wonderful job performing in the Talent Show. I am sure there were others that haven’t been included and amongst all that there was learning happening. All the above events would not be possible without the team effort of the students, teachers and parents. Thank you to the school community for all your support and assistance this term and we look forward to another great term after the holidays. Have a safe and enjoyable break.
A big congratulations to all the students who participated in the Talent Show on Tuesday. What a truly inspiring event to see so many courageous students get up in front of the crowd and share their gifts. There was singing, dancing, band performances and comedy. Great work students on your commitment and preparation for the event. A huge thank you to our marvellous music teacher who makes it all happen- Mrs Panizza. Mrs Panizza has given up many lunch times to assist the performers hone their skills in readiness for the day. Also, well done to the Year 6 hosts for running the day.

Australian Primary Principal Conference
For the final days of term, the Leadership Team have attended the conference and heard from learned educational speakers who have inspired and challenged our thinking. There has been a clear message about the changing world and how this will flow through to education. We look forward to taking the messages we have heard and sharing with staff.
