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

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.
