Sacrament of Reconciliation
Congratulations to our Year 3 students who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. We would also like to acknowledge the students who participated in the preparation and were part of this journey. This is a beautiful sacrament, instituted by Christ as a way to offer us His Mercy and Grace. The journey for these young people has seen them supported on this road by their families, friends, our parish and our school. We thank Father Izzy, for conducting the celebration and assisting in preparing the students. Thank you to Mrs Gumina and Miss Philp for all your hard work and preparation towards this important Sacrament.
Parent Teacher Interviews
Parent Teacher Meetings concluded on Wednesday. If you were not able to catch up with your child’s teacher, please endeavour to make an alternative appointment, as our home/school partnership is vital in the progress of all children at school. We thank you for your continued support! Thank you to our dedicated teachers for all their hard work in preparing these interviews. Thank you to everyone for keeping this open and honest communication flowing. This can only mean one thing – the best outcomes for your children.

We begin to reflect ever more on the suffering that Jesus was about to face, and we take time to consider ways that we can live better and reduce the suffering of those around us. As a Catholic school, we are strong in our support of Caritas and Project Compassion. Thank you for assisting your child/ren in making contributions to their Project Compassion. We appreciate your support.
Fremantle Fundamentals Gala Day
Last Wednesday, the Pre-Primary, Year 1 and Year 2 classes were invited to a special Gala day at Cockburn Arc. The day consisted of skills stations run by students from Notre Dame University, SEDA sports development students and some Fremantle Dockers AFL players. The gala day included a visit from the club mascots, player interactions, games and prizes. The students and staff had so much fun! We even got a special visit from Sean Darcy – GO FREO!
“I liked doing the activities and I liked seeing the mascot!” – Isla, Year 2
“I liked playing ‘stuck in the mud’ with my friends” – Beau, Year 2
“I loved seeing Sean Darcy and getting tickets to go a Freo game” – Olllie, Year 2
“I liked kicking the footy with my friend Mia” – Jamie, Year 2.
Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter and an enjoyable holiday break with family and friends!

Message from the Head Boy and Head Girl
Hi everyone, our names are Ahlia Lang and Maksim Tomic and we would like to give you a spiel about what it has been like term one as Head Girl and Head Boy. We have worked really well as a team along with the other student councillors.
It’s been great to get a taste for what’s been happening in our school with the basketball courts being resurfaced; this is amazing and so enjoyable now for us to use. We really liked tidying the ANZAC garden and having discussions at our Student Council meetings. Having an Italian class – we love visiting and it’s easier for the teachers, giving presentations in front of the whole school and even SETON students, helping support the Paint Me A Rainbow campaign by selling merchandise and collecting gold coin donations, talking in front of the school, having a good connection with the staff at CtK and being a role model for the students. It was real privileged to write a letter of thanks to the P&F saying how great the disco was.
We want to thank the P&F and Mr Kelly for improving the basketball courts, they are amazing. We hope to have basketball as one of our school teams’ competitions this year or into the future.
Some of the ideas discussed at our Student Council Meetings:
- Sushi in the canteen
- We need more bike racks
- Book Club initiative with their Buddy class.
- Gardening Club
- Prayer Garden
- Bush Tucker Garden
- Soccer goals when playing soccer
We look forward to next term and what we can do to help our school be the best possible.

Head Girl and Head Boy
It has been a busy and successful term for our P&F, I would like to give a grateful Thank You to all of those who have volunteered to help this term, It is true, many hands make light work. A big shout out to Members Sarah Loader and Grace Wiley for their efforts with our most recent disco, the night was greatly enjoyed.
Last week, the new Basketball Courts were completed. With the generous contributions from our school community, with each fundraising event we hold, the P&F were able to cover the cost for this, a wonderful achievement, that we are very proud of. It is great to see all the hard work from our members, benefiting the students, and making out school such a special place.
Term two will see us celebrating Mother’s Day, with the Stall held on Wednesday, May 10th (May 11th for Pre Kindy) and the Mother’s Day Breakfast on Friday the 12th from 7:30 am in the Hall.
