Sports Assembly

This Friday we will be acknowledging all of the students that participated in sporting carnivals in 2019. We have had a large increase in participation this year with students ranging from Year 3 to 6.

We will be rewarding students for fantastic achievements in sport with certificates and medals. We will also present a MVP medal to students who have excelled in numerous sporting carnivals.

We welcome families who can make it down to support their children as many of you parents have supported these children through volunteering their time to supervise at carnivals and also covering carnival fees to pay for buses.

We look forward to seeing you all this Friday at 9am in the Hall.


Important dates

Hello families of 5/6 HS and BM,

As our busy term is almost half way through, we’re very much aware that some parents are beginning to wonder what some of the important dates are for the end of year celebrations. All of our students have access to a modified term calendar that we use in class to share important dates. If you ask your child they should be able to share this with you on their laptop.

However here are some of the dates to remember. Please keep in mind that some of these apply to year 6 students only.

  • Week 5– Friday night –School disco
  • Week 6 – Friday 9.00am Sports assembly.
  • Week 7 Illawonga Camp
  • Week 8 – Tuesday Graduation Mass 9.30 in hall
  • Week 8– Friday whole school Carols Night
  • Week 9–  Thursday 9.00am Graduation Assembly
  • Week 9– Thursday Night – Graduation Ceremony (year 6 only) time TBC
  • Week 9Friday Pupil Free day

In among all of these exciting events we still have some great learning to take place. It is our aim for this to continue right up until the end of the year. For our year 6 students it’s a great time to prepare and be involved in the transition to secondary school, while our year 5’s are learning what is involved in becoming the ‘Seniors’ at school.  The notes and money for the compulsory senior jumpers in 2020 are due along with any outstanding Camp forms. We are keen to get final numbers for camp by the end of this week.

Please feel free to put these dates in your calendar as we look forward to sharing these events with families. We will endeavour to keep you up to date with as much of the details as possible. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.


Kind regards,

Hayley Stam, Jodi Giancaspro and Emily Monaghan
