Dear Parents, Staff and Students
Last week’s celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Feast of Fatima was a huge success throughout the school. My thanks to the children and staff for making the week eventful, in particular, my thanks to Mrs Pettett for all the work she did in organising liturgies for the children. The highlight was the human rosary held on Friday.
As always in Term 4 teachers will begin the process of looking at classes for 2018. The teachers will do their very best in ensuring your child is placed in the right class.
I have begun the process of short-listing and interviewing for new staff in 2018. This will take approximately 3 weeks. All new appointments will be published in due time.
P & F
Sincere thanks to the P & F for their generous donation of $15000 for new readers in the Infants section and a further $8,500 for new furniture. I ask that parents support the great work of the P & F in particular in attending the major fundraiser on 18th November – a Gala 1920’s themed night.
A big thankyou to all parents for supporting the Broad family. Any parent who wishes to contribute can still do so through the office. So far we have accepted and passed on over $4,000 – a great testament to the kindness and generosity of the St Therese’s community. Martin and Amanda are extremely grateful.
In Term 3 a Uniform Committee was appointed to look at sports shirts and jumpers. A survey has been produced and will be sent home shortly for your completion. Please make sure that you vote to have your say.
Pick up – Burke Street
Last week Newcastle Council members came to speak to me about the pick up in Burke Street. As a consequence of the discussion and them viewing the traffic flow a decision has been made to change some of the signage in the street to assist with a safer process for picking up. Shortly you will receive information about these signs. In the meantime please continue to do the right thing and if you notice a banking up of cars please drive around the block. Also thankyou to those parents who are arriving a few minutes later, this has made a huge difference to congestion and is safer for the children.
We have a small number of cases of Molluscum – a skin irritation that presents as small pimples. Even though this condition is contagious children do not need to be kept at home. However it is strongly recommended that the spots be covered to prevent the condition spreading to other children. Note that this condition is a viral infection and when treated will disappear
