CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION IN SALE
Our school is a place of faith and learning
Dear Parents and Families,
Today, we welcomed our first two groups of 2021 Foundation students onsite. It was lovely to meet a number of new and familiar faces. We will continue to run our remaining three sessions over the next fortnight and look forward to greeting all of the children who have enrolled for 2021.
Booklists for 2021 will be sent out to families. We ask that they be returned by November 20th 2020.
STUDENT LEADERS 2021
This week, teachers in Year 5 have discussed the nature of Student Leadership and the process of selecting School Captains and House leaders for 2021. Letters will be sent home to families of Year 5 students to inform them of the process and key selection criteria. We wish them all well as a number of students prepare to write their letters of application.
YEAR 2 GARDENING
Some of our Year 2 students have been busy, clearing garden beds and are keen to plant some vegetables. Miss Glover has been overseeing their efforts and the current wet and warm weather, should see us harvesting a small crop of healthy vegetables prior to finishing school.
Just a reminder, that hats are to be worn during fourth term. A good idea is for children to place them in the front pockets of their school bags. The children have been very responsible in ensuring they bring and wear their hats.
We also remind families that we do have a number of “Lost and Found” items gathering in the hall. We ask that student clothing is labelled so they can be easily returned to their owners. School Jackets and polar fleece jumpers are the most common items found. A reminder also, that the school jacket is not to replace the school jumper as a summer or winter uniform item. It can be worn with the sports uniform instead of the polar fleece or as an extra layer of clothing over the school jumper or polar fleece if necessary,
Enjoy your weekend.
Take care and God Bless
Anita & Staff

We would like to remind all families under instruction by the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited, for any students who are being tested for COVID-19 and have siblings who attend the school, the siblings should also remain at home until a negative test result is provided for the student awaiting a test result.
These students will receive their awards in their classrooms.

NAIDOC WEEK 8 - 15 NOVEMBER
Join the celebration!
Sunday 8 November marks the beginning of NAIDOC Week, a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, languages and histories. This week is a time to listen and learn from the voices and stories of First Nations Peoples - who are part of the oldest living cultures on the planet.
This year’s theme, Always Was, Always Will Be, encourages us to celebrate the true history of our country. For over 65,000 years, this land has been lived on and looked after by First Nations Peoples. We encourage everyone to take this week as an opportunity to acknowledge our shared past, and look together towards the future.
Our Foundation is celebrating with a stunning video montage with submissions from First Nations Peoples and a series of interviews with three inspiring Indigenous personalities. Plus we have put together a list of how you can get involved including recommended reading, videos and films to watch, events to attend and learning resources.
We look forward to celebrating NAIDOC Week with you.
