Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome back to Term 3.
I pointed out to Year 10 on Tuesday that they were only a few months away from beginning Year 11 and to Year 7 that they were over halfway into Year 8, time marches on!
Wednesday we celebrated NAIDOC WEEK that took place through the holiday break with a whole school Mass. Elder Aunty Sue told a story of giant Kangaroos and Aboriginal people camped near where the Lachlan and Murrumbidgee rivers meet. The people were defenceless and forced to run from the giant beasts. Because of the chaos, confusion and injuries suffered the people developed spears, boomerangs, shields, baby carriers and fire to defend themselves. A wonderful story of resilience and technological development.
Our youngest students, Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2, will help present the Parish Mass this Saturday evening at 6pm. We hope many families are able to make a special effort to attend this Mass.
Interviews for 2020 enrolments are underway, if you are aware of any families interested in enrolling their child for next year could you please advise them to contact the school as soon as possible.
Kind regards to everyone.

Year 9 and 10 students participated in an Inquisitive Minds Workshop today which provided quality and fun maths activities for the students.
Students were immersed in mathematical and logical thinking which utilised foundational and advanced problem solving strategies. They participated in interactive lessons on problem solving strategies, working together on a diverse range of hands-on problems. Thanks Miss Wyse for coordinating this great day for our students.
