  K AY A and welcome to week 4!!

Week 2 Term 2

Welcome to a super busy few weeks for our Year 6 students as we complete our preparations for and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.   Today we had a visit from Bishop Holohan who came to speak with us and check on our preparations to receive the Sacrament.  All students receiving the Sacrament met with the Bishop to discuss the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit.  As per my blog last week, we have confirmation coming up in the next few weeks, so we are madly working to complete this task.  Just a few reminders to start the term. 1. Saint Box and presentation - If your child hasn't brought in their box, please assist them to remember to bring this in as we have started our presentations.  The quality of these has been superb and the students obviously know lots about their Saints. 2.  We have our Parent Confirmation Evening tomorrow night - Tuesday 3rd May As Mrs Meyer advised last week, this will be held at school tomorrow and start at 5:30pm. 3. Parent   Confirmation Retreat

Term 2 Week 1

  Welcome back for what promises to be a super Term 2. As per my blog last week, we have confirmation coming up in the next few weeks, so we are madly working to complete this task.  Just a few reminders to start the term. 1. Saint Box and presentation - Commencing Wednesday of Week 1 2. Confirmation Sash form and money (Confirmation Candidates only) - Due 27th April 3. Parent Confirmation Retreat - Letter to Child - Due 29th April This letter is often something your child will cherish and hold onto for a long time. The length of the letter is totally up to you, however I ask that once you have completed it you put it in a sealed envelope with your child's name on the front and pass it on to me. I would like for you to keep this a secret and a complete surprise for them on their retreat day, so this may mean dropping it off to the front office or slipping it inside something else for your child to pass onto me (I am very good at secret squirrel business). In this letter you may w
