Class Mass:.

attend Mass with their children.

Mary’s Birthday Mass:
On Wednesday 8th September Kindergarten are preparing a Mass for us all, to
celebrate the feast of Mary’s Birthday. We encourage all our parents to come
along and think about the wonderful honour that Mary received in being called to
be the mother of Jesus. We also pray for our needs through the intercession of
Mary who is our mother also.
              Student Photos: From time to time photos or videos are taken of the students by school
              staff or CEO photographer. These may then be used on the school’s website, on
              promotional materials or in presentations. If you do not want your child included in such
              publications you are asked to notify the Principal in writing.

All parents are invited to attend Community Story Time tomorrow at 2:00 as part of our celebrations
for National Literacy & Numeracy Week. Your children have been placed in family groups so that
parents need only go to one room to enjoy this activity with all their children at once.

During this time the children will hear favourite stories shared by community guests including the Lord
Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Parramatta, our federal government member of parliament, the Executive
Director of Schools for Parramatta Diocese, staff of the Catholic Education Office, staff from Delany
College, NSW Police Officers and many more special guests.

Please join your children for this wonderful time of sharing the joy of reading.

Student Book Reviews: Ingo Series

                        I wish I was away in Ingo
                        Far across the briny sea
                        Sailing over deepest waters
                        Where love, nor care, never trouble me…
                        Sapphire was an ordinary girl, going to school, doing ordinary things until, one day, something changed her and
                        her brother Conor’s lives forever. Nothing will be ordinary again as she becomes one of the very few people to
                        know the secrets of Ingo.
                        Dive through darkness and danger and into the magical and mysterious world of Ingo…
                        If you like books about mermaids, epic journeys and fantasy, then I recommend that you read these books! Once
                        you start reading, you won’t want to stop.
Guest Reviewer: Sousann, Year 6
The Ingo Series by Helen Dunmore (Ingo, The Tide Knot, The Deep, The Crossing of Ingo) is available in the Library and Information Services
Centre, where you can find the full text of Sousann’s review along with a display of books from the series.
Happy Reading!

                                                  Office Request
                 Occasionally children have accidents at school that require them to have their school uniform, underwear
                and socks changed. Office staff in some cases provide items of clothing to assist. We ask parents to return
                all clothing that has being borrowed. These items of clothing are not for the students to keep, they are to be
                                        washed and returned to school as soon as possible. Thank you.

                                                   Parent News
Parents are invited to have a look at the www.partners4learning.edu.au website. This
