Our Prayer This Week
From the Principal
Dear parents and members of our community,
The year is drawing quickly to a close with only 17 school days left and in this time we have two camps, two excursions, school reports, a feast day celebration and an end of year celebration to plan and conduct. It is important that we have the opportunity to celebrate well and to provide a fun and happy end to a year that has been filled with many challenges.

5/6 School Camp
Our 5/6 school camp to Grampians Retreat is on Wednesday 2nd, December to Friday 4th of December. We will be onsite with St Thomas' but both schools will operate independently of one another to comply with the current guidelines. The Grade 5 and 6 students will receive a note today with further information and details of the event. It is great to see one of our important events able to take place now that the health status of the state has improved.
3/4 School Camp
The 3/4 school camp is on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th of December. The children will be involved in an excursion to Warrnambool on Wednesday where they will visit minigolf and participate in a surf lesson. They will then return to school for dinner and will sleep in their classrooms in swags or sleeping bags. The next morning they will travel to Live Wire Park near Lorne for a zipline adventure and a trampoline session. After lunch on the Lorne foreshore they will return to school by bell time. Friday attendance is optional.
Junior School Excursion
Our Foundation, Grade 1 and Grade 2 students will be going on their major excursion on Friday the 11th of December. They will travel by bus to Port Fairy and Warrnambool for a day of fun and learning.

Our Senior class will have an end of year excursion to Warrnambool on Monday 14th of December. The main activities for this day will be Minigolf and a session of surfing at the main beach.
St Colman's Feast Day
This Tuesday the 24th is the feast of St Colman of Cloyne but, as is the normal this year, we will be celebrating the day on Thursday the 26th with a school liturgy, and a school disco. This day is also the day we celebrate our latest achievement of our dojo challenge of reaching 1500 points.
A big thank you to Michelle, Adam, Carl and Alex Lehmann for working very hard on the school lawns yesterday. The school looks very trim and tidy thanks to their mowing, line trimming and weeding of the garden beds.
