In Term Two the Year Ones have been learning about where we live in the world and how it is different to other countries and towns. We have compared country towns to cities and have found out what people in other countries eat, wear and play. Although there are many differences, there are also lots of things that are the same. We all want to be with our families, have shelter and be safe and loved! This Thursday we are inviting our parents to an International Tasting Tour, where we will show them what we have learnt and let them tastetest food from other countries!
Term 2 – Week 10
Monday 22nd June, 2009.
Dear Parents, By now many of you would have had the opportunity to meet with your child‟s teacher about their progress this year. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all staff at St. Josephs for their work this year. We are truly lucky to have such a committed group of people working with the children at this school. Thankyou!! Tuesday this week the children will be walking over to the Cultural Centre to watch the matinee of the Childers State School performance of “Through Isis Eyes”. We will be reversing our morning tea / lunchtime routine in that the children will be having their lunchtime meal at 10.40 before they go to the show. The children can take an afternoon snack with them to the show and can eat it at intermission. Tuckshop will be on and a big thankyou to the ladies organising tuckshop who will be having an early start to ensure meals are ready in time.
The Week Ahead
Tuckshop School Banking Childers School Musical Wednesday - School Photos P & F Steak of Origin Thursday – Music Tennis Friday – Athletics Carnival
On Wednesday this week we have our school photos being taken. I have asked all the children to ensure that they have the correct school uniform on for Wednesday. Thank you for your continued support in this area. This Wednesday evening we are holding a State of Origin Evening run by the School P&F. The goal is to raise enough money to purchase a new upright freezer for the school tuckshop. Please come along and support this endeavour as proceeds from nights like these only benefit the children and it should be a lot of fun also. If you are able to come along could you please send numbers along Tuesday morning for catering purposes. This Friday morning all the school will be walking to the Showgrounds for the Athletics Day. As I write this the rain tumbles down and has interrupted plans for the 800m races which were to be held this morning. Cordalba and Goodwood schools children will now be joining us at 9.00am on Friday morning when we will run the 800m races. Hopefully the weather will be fine for Friday. Please come and join us if you are free. This week is the last week for term 2. We hope you have a wonderful holiday break in the coming weeks. Monday 13th July is a pupil free day and where staff will be working on a maths course. Children return to school on Tuesday 14th July. If you are in town on the Monday please come to visit the school from about 10.30am until lunchtime. Up to 30 cars who are participating in the Great Endeavour Car Rally will be stopping for a break (parking on the oval) and enjoying a BBQ. Last week the children raised over $200 for Diabetes Research and for The Endeavour Foundation. We will be presenting them with a cheque when they are here. Have a great week.
Tim Stinson From the APRE A huge thankyou to all who came yesterday to our Sacred Heart & Sesquicentenary Mass & Picnic Day. A special thankyou in particular to Dolour Emmitt, Mary Byrne and Helen Bonanno, who assisted in organising this event. It was a wonderful day where we had people travel from Tiaro, Maryborough, Gin Gin, Woodgate, Biggenden and Mt Perry. We had close to 200 people come to celebrate with us and what a wonderful way to start our inaugural Sacred Heart Picnic Days. Congratulations also to the four students from our school who participated in our Parish Sacramental Program for Reconciliation. Over the past couple of months they have participated in activities after school with Sandra Freeman, Lucy Stinson, Helen Bonanno and myself. I would also like to extend my thanks to those people as well for assisting with this. As we look towards the holidays let us remember to reflect upon all of those wonderful moments where we see and meet God; God moments.
The simplest actions should be done with a full realization of their significance … Ordinary life is weighted with mystery and beauty. The smallest observation or activity can startle the imagination to wakefulness and a sense of wonder at the significance of being.” Artist, Meinrad Craighead. Have a good week, Carla Durnan
