Term 4 Week 9 - Friday 1st December 2023
From our Principal
Term 4, Week 9
Advent is the Church season leading up to Christmas. It is a time of waiting and preparing our hearts (and homes) for the birth of Jesus into the world. This first week, we focus on the theme of ‘hope’ - igniting the flame of expectation in our hearts and minds. As we gather in the warmth of the Advent season, we joyfully embrace the first week of this sacred journey. Let us carry this sense of hope forward, uniting us in acts of kindness and compassion, embodying the essence of Advent. Together, as a Catholic school community, we eagerly await the birth of Jesus, embracing the promise of hope that illuminates our path.
Wishing you a week filled with hope and anticipation.

Please make sure your child brings their base costume to school in a clearly named bag for our dress rehearsal on Wednesday.
Thursday 7th December: Nativity Performance
Students should arrive at school by 5:30pm wearing their base costume and go directly to their classrooms where they will put on the rest of their costume. They will be supervised by school staff until the show begins at 6pm. We anticipate that the performance will conclude by 7pm.
