From the Principal….
Dear parents,
Tue — 11th November
Why do you send your children to St Therese’s? I ask this question when parents apply for
enrolment of their children. I generally hear reference to values, community feel,
discipline, the extra care given by staff, the school’s good name etc. All these things, which
are true and vitally important, are the direct result of our Catholic Faith. We present
decent values because of our belief in the Gospel message and in the person of Jesus
Christ; we have a sense of community because of our need to treat people as Christ did and
that wherever two or more are gathered in Christ’s name, He is present. Being a Catholic
school isn’t about being named after a saint or about having crucifixes on the wall; its about
being Christ to others. It‘s about providing high quality education. It’s worth a thought.
Remembrance Day.
Wed — 12th November
Mass at 9:15am. Come and
celebrate Mass with the Juniors
(Prep—Yr 2) in St Therese’s
Chapel. Year Six students will be
able to receive the sacrament of
Reconciliation from 10am
On Friday, after school, we had a working bee to tidy up the grounds. We painted,
planted, shovelled, raked, dug and swept. We were gone by 6:30pm and the place looked
so much better for it. My thanks go to Jess and Matt Paynter, Mel Rawoteea, Lindy and Mal Fri — 14 November
Tuffnell, Luis Lineros, Katherine and Ronnie Roch, Damien Green and Paul Cowan (along
JobCo. Training Enrolment
with their respective children) for giving up their time for the school.
Sessions @ 9:30am.
Last week we had our 2015 Preps and their families join us and we had some Year Seven
students from St Peter’s talk to our current Year Six students about what High School will
be like. Preparation for next year is well and truly underway!
Next Monday, November 17, we’ll have another Graduation Committee meeting at
2:45pm in the Parent Room. All are welcome to attend.
Have a great week,
Mr Cahill
