St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal

As we approach the most wonderful time of the year, 5/6 EP & 5/6 LF along with our buddies 2MA & 2AH are taking part in Catholic Mission to help out those in our community where Christmas can be a very difficult time for families, particularly those who are experiencing poverty and disadvantage.

We are looking to collect non-perishable items over the next two weeks to make up Christmas Hampers for St Vincent de Paul to distribute to families in need. Any help or donations are greatly appreciated and will go very far in making such a big difference for those in need.

Visit from Parent Artist | Selina Foat

The students of 5/6 LF and 5/6 EP were very fortunate to have our very own Selina Foat come into the classroom today! Selina has a wealth of experience in graphic design and has recently moved into the illustration space through her involvement in creating a children’s book.
It was a great opportunity for the students to listen to an expert in the field and understand the dedication and passion it takes to succeed in the field of art.

A great afternoon of learning!
