Junior School News: Week 6, Term 2, 2019

Next Wednesday 12 June we will hold a Junior School Mass at 9.10am. Parents and Carers are most welcome to attend. At this Mass we will celebrate Father David’s time with us and wish him well as he heads to Indonesia. The students will miss his stories and his presence. Thank you to Ms Cusack and the Liturgy team of students for organising the Mass.

Congratulations to all of the students who represented the school at the South Weston Cross Country Carnival on Monday. Thank you to Mr Fox and Mr Balmaks for accompanying the students on the day. Well done to Jesse Borghouts (6 White) who finished 5th in his 3km race and will now compete in the ACT carnival next Wednesday.

ACT School Sport Representatives – congratulations to Koby Anderson (Rugby League), Shannon Tardrew (Rugby League) and Monty Green (Cricket & Hockey) for making the ACT PSSA teams. This is a huge achievement and we wish them well in the various National school sport carnivals coming up later in the year.

Woolworths Earn and Learn – just a reminder that we are collecting these stickers. We still have until the 25th June to collect as many Woolworths stickers as we can. The boys are doing a fabulous job so keep it up! The Junior School will benefit from the resources we are able to purchase by obtaining these stickers. Students can either take home the A4 sheets to be completed or bring in stickers collected. We have collection bins in both main and junior reception areas. Many thanks to the families who have already brought in stickers.

Library Overdue Books
Just a friendly reminder to students in the Junior School to return any books which are overdue.
We would be very grateful for parents/carers to assist the boys in locating and returning these books ASAP.

Just to give families early notice that the theme for this year is “Reading Is My Secret Power.”​
