Dear Parents and Guardians
Living God, In the season of spring help us to rejoice in the newness of life and to celebrate all life that comes from you. We thank You for blooming flowers and budding trees, for birds singing and beautiful butterflies, and for the world made new. We wonder at the beauty of this season and the hope that it brings. Amen.
In everything give thanks.
1 Thessalonians 5: 18
In our Australian Catholic tradition October is designated as the Month of the Rosary. This
simple prayer dates back centuries and has been a constant in the prayer life of countless
numbers of Christians. The prayer, using the repetition of the Hail Mary and the formulae
of the Four Mysteries (Glorious, Joyful, Sorrowful and Light) keeps the person praying the
Rosary focused on Jesus – His life, mission and redemptive power.
Mary, our good Mother, that throughout all time
no-one whoever had sought your help, or come to you for support, has been abandoned.
Confident in this love, I come to you, Mary, in need and in hope.
Graciously hear my prayer and increase my desire to say ‘Yes’.
The Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother, prays for us continually and helps those we entrust to her care.
Welcome to Term Four.
The sunshine made a glorious start to our new term – the spring weather and the holiday break seem to have given vitality to us all! Our students, in their summer uniforms and with many sporting smart new haircuts, arrived looking happy and enthusiastic to be back at school, as were staff, after a refreshing break.
Year Six Students
This term the School Community is focused on our wonderful Year 6 children as they prepare for their graduation from primary school culminating in a Graduation and Thanksgiving Mass at the end of the term. We ask Jesus to be with our children and families during this time.
Tuesday, 18 October: CtK Swimming Carnival will be held at Melville Aquatic Centre for students and Years 3-6. Parents are most welcome to come along and cheer the children on. Remember to dress your child and yourselves in the House colours! Most of all have fun and enjoy the day!
Annual Community Meeting
Our Advisory Council and P&F Annual Community Meeting will be held on Wednesday, 16 November at 6pm. Please put this date in your diary and try and come to the meeting. I encourage all our new families to come along and become directly involved in our community.
After the Swimming Carnival this Tuesday, I will be leaving for Manjimup and staying there until Friday evening as I am part of a panel completing a school review for Kearnan College. Mr Dobbie and Mrs Reardon will be your contacts if required.
I wish you all a great term and urge all parents to keep informed with what happens in our school by reading our newsletter and becoming involved in our school activities.
