LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Catholic Education WeekCATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 27 July - 2 August this year. This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day.

The theme for this year's celebrations is: Come, live life in all its fullness. This inspirational call is based on the Gospel of John (10:10), challenging those who answer it to "live fully". Reflecting this Gospel call, our school, like all Catholic schools, strives to provide a learning experience through which every young person has the opportunity to reach their full human potential - spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, culturally and physically - and know what it means to engage in all that life has to offer.

During Catholic Education Week 2014, Catholic education communities across Queensland are invited to celebrate and
share how their communities are encouraging and providing opportunities for their members to "Come, live life in all its
fullness".

Our school is planning a number of activities during the week and we hope you are able to join in the celebrations with us.

See full list of activities in this week's newsletter.

SCHOOL CROSSING SUPERVISORS CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
It has been 30 Years since the School Crossing Supervisor Scheme was launched in Queensland back in 1984. There are now 652 schools participating in the scheme. There are 1214 school crossings across Queensland and over 1900 supervisors helping to keep kids safe as they travel to and from school each day. St Saviour's Primary School would like to acknowledge the wonderful work our crossing supervisors do here on a daily basis. Thank you to Betty and Ian who are our supervisors here at St Saviour's.

JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
St Saviour's Primary will be participating in some wonderful healthy activities at school over the coming weeks; using the special resources and support the Heart Foundation team are providing our school free of charge as part of our participation in Jump Rope for Heart. Over the next few weeks, your child will be learning a range of fun skipping skills and new tricks. We will emphasise the importance of regular physical activity, such as skipping , as well as enjoying healthy eating as part of a healthy lifestyle. Please remember to start collecting donations for our Jump Rope Celebration Day which is being held on Friday 8th August. Sponsorship forms have been sent home last term. All cash donations should be brought to school along with their sponsorship form (used or unused) to school on the day of the Jump Off. The Jump Off is also a great opportunity for you to witness how much fun skipping can be, so we would love to see you at our Jump Off Day!! Mr Paul Deverell (representative) will be visiting our school on Thursday 24th July for a Jump Rope For Heart Workshop. Please note that Assembly will be held on Thursday 24th July not Friday 25th July.

SPORTS NEWS
Interschool Sport – Term 3
This term the Year Six and Seven children will participate in interschool sport. This is a school activity and it is compulsory that all children participate. The children have indicated their preferences and we will take part in the hockey, soccer and netball competitions.

Please be aware that if your son or daughter has indicated they would like to play hockey or soccer the appropriate protective equipment is required. For soccer and hockey all of the children need shin pads. The hockey players also need to wear a mouthguard. The children can bring their own hockey sticks if they have one. If not, one will be provided for them.

A letter has been sent home and it would be great if the permission slips could be returned to the class teacher. Interschool sport will commence in Week Two if this term. As soon as the draws are finalised we will send home an email with the times and venues. Parent support is welcome and encouraged.
