LATEST NEWS & EVENTS
Well, today brings us to the end of another busy and challenging yet successful term. I want to thank you all for your support throughout this term not only for your children but for the staff and each other. In any community there are always challenging times but it provides me with a real sense of pride and joy to belong to the St Saviour's Primary School community. You are truly amazing people and I thank you for being who you are!
Thank you once again for all you do to support your children and our school. Please enjoy your Easter break and I look forward to seeing each of you next term. Happy Holidays! Regards, Donna
Yesterday we gathered as a whole school community to reflect on the Way of the
Cross, the events leading to Jesus dying on the Cross on Good Friday. This year, the presentation was by way of
silhouette tableaux, song and prayer. I hope that the children were able to glean some of the significant
message… as was expressed at Assembly. We are Easter people..we live in hope.
The story will be concluded with the events of the Resurrection, when we return after the holidays. I'd like to especially thank Mrs Sarah Comben for her invaluable assistance with the "dramatic side" of things. The readers/ narrators were our School Captains, Patrick, Lucy, James and Caitlin and the 4 person cast was Emma, Chloe, Cody and Ben. They were all outstanding in their various roles and both Mrs Comben and I found them all very keen, cooperative and capable workers.
EASTER EGG HUNT
Students, teachers (and the odd Easter Bunny) had a fabulous time following clues that took them to all corners of the school in our inaugural School Easter Egg Hunt. Thanks to the Year 6 and 7 Leaders who came up with the idea, dealt with the practicalities and helped supervise on the day. Well done!
A reminder that this competition starts on Wednesday the 23rd of April in Term 2 and the competition will run for 5 weeks. We had a training run on Wednesday and it was great to see so many boys there. We will have a training run on Tuesday the 22nd of April straight after school until 4pm. Further information will be provided then.
