Attention: For those coming on camp this week…
Here is a list of what you will need to pack for camp this Wednesday – Friday.
Camp what to bring
All year 6 students have now received their Graduation invitation. Incase you missed it, we have one here for you.
A huge congratulations – to all of the award and medal recipients from HS and BM for todays Sports Presentation.
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 9– Friday 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.

Yr 5/6 Teachers
Today our classroom was visited by a group of parish members and leaders as part of a special day for them here at Holy Family. With a focus on the diversity of our Catholic identity, some of our students had prepared and delivered a small presentation to the group. Congratulations to Osi, Lorraine, Ann Maria, Shanthana and Deepthi for their leadership and courage and their wonderful work.
Osi – Talked about her Buddhism faith and its comparison to Catholic faith and her involvement in our catholic community. She has also displayed a Venn diagram on the screen.
Lorraine – Shared family photos while discussing her connections with in the Parish community and her personal story of faith development.
Shanthana, Deepthi and Ann Maria – Performed a cultural dance representing their Indian heritage and religious beliefs as way of demonstrating how cultural diversity is embraced and celebrated here at Holy Family.
Last weeks camp for the year 6’s from HS, BM & HM to Victor Harbor was a great success. Credit to the students for their enthusiasm, positive attitudes, manners and general behaviour. This was not only noticed by the teachers attending, but campsite staff as well. A big congratulations to all students who attended. It was a great chance to work, learn, play, eat and socialise in a relaxed and fun setting together.
We took many photos whilst on camp – too many to upload them all. We are compiling a list of photos on the shared drive here at school so that students can copy them onto their laptops to share with you at home.
Here a just a couple…
