“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference”
On Friday, 26th October, we acknowledged World Teacher’s Day in Australia. The day provided an opportunity to pay particular attention to the important role of teachers within our school communities.
I would like to thank the staff at St. Peter Chanel School for giving your child the best education possible. Their commitment, passion and professionalism are indicators of individuals striving to be the best they can possibly be, in a most challenging profession.
Let us give thanks for all our teachers at our school.
As term four continues it is important that you check the Lost Property area for any missing items of clothing. At the end of the school year all contents will be washed and stored if they are not labelled.
SCHOOL FEES AND LEVIES
Outstanding school fees still remain for 2018. It is important that they are paid promptly to ensure that the school can meet its payments. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please make an appointment to see me. Thank you to all parents who have finalised their fee and levy payment for 2018. Your support with this matter is appreciated.
SCHOOL CLOSURE DAYS
Please note that school will be closed on Monday, 5th November and Tuesday, 6th November. A parish closure day has been allocated for the Monday, to precede the Melbourne Cup. There will be no school for students on these days.
Please note that the school will also be closed on Thursday, 6th December allowing for Learning Conversations to take place.
Our Graduation Mass will be held on Thursday, 13th December at 7.00pm at St. Peter Chanel School Church. I hope as many families as possible can attend this special Mass. It is a wonderful opportunity to recognise the talents of our Year 6 students. It also provides us with time to reflect on their journey at St. Peter Chanel School. We will also ask God’s blessing on each one of them as they begin another important stage of their life journey – Secondary School.
END OF 2018 SCHOOL YEAR
A reminder to all parents that the end of the 2018 school year will conclude on Friday, 14th December at 1.00pm. The After School Program will be in operation as per normal on this day. Year 6 students will finish on Thursday, 13th December to coincide with their Graduation ceremony.
Please note that students are finishing slightly earlier, as Occupational, Health and Safety guidelines do not allow students to be on school site whilst the transitioning and moving into our new administration takes place.
Staff will conclude the year the following week and be involved in supporting the transition to the new administration which is due to be completed by the end of the year.
SPORTS FUN DAY
A reminder that our school ‘Sports Fun Day’ takes place on Friday, 2nd November at Sassella Park, Deer Park. The day will commence at approximately 10.00am and conclude at 1.30pm.
All children are expected to wear their sports uniform / house colours. Children will be walking to and from Sassella Park. All families are invited to attend.
School resumes for all students on Friday, 1st February, 2019.
