A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents and Carers,

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! It’s Production Week and our Year 3-6 Super Stars are ready to entertain you! A special word of thanks to Abby and Milly’s dad, Peter, who came in on Friday evening and helped set up the stage.

Performances are as follows:

  • Tuesday Sept 13: Yr 5/6 and Mrs Roberts class at midday show
  • Tuesday Sept 13: Yr 5/6 and Mr Vermeer’s class at 6:00pm show
  • Wednesday Sept 14: Yr 5/6 and Mr McDowell’s class at midday show
  • Wednesday Sept 14: Yr 5/6 and Mrs Rose’s class at 6:00pm show

Please note tickets are not available at the door. To purchase tickets please go to CDF Pay.

Performing students will arrive each day at school wearing their school uniform (sports uniform is fine if that’s easier). They will need to have their costume with them in a NAMED BAG and the classroom teachers will supervise ‘dressing room’ arrangements for the students to get changed for the matinee performances prior to the shows.

The P-2 students will be taken to see the show with their classes at the matinees this week. From a Child Safety perspective, we ask that parents collect their children from the hall after the evening shows (students will not be permitted to meet you in the carpark). The evening shows will be finished by 8:00pm.

For evening performances the students need to arrive at 5:45pm (Students with a lead role have been asked to arrive at 5:30pm).                                        CHOOKAS to everyone!

And speaking of ‘chookas’ we have very exciting news…The chicken Coop AND chicken Run have been donated to St Mary’s by the wonderful Scollary family.  Currently the ‘coop’ is in boxes ready to be assembled. If there are any skilled parents who are handy with a drill and may have some time (perhaps over the holidays?) to build the coop, please contact the office (working bee rebate will apply).

Please remember that this week also…

  • Thursday 15th September LAST DAY TERM 3 finish 3.15pm
  • FINAL SCHOOL ASSEMBLY will be Thursday 15th September at 2:30pm in the hall…ALL WELCOME!
  • Friday Sept 16: Whole School Closure Day

It has been a super busy term and your children have all worked so very hard. Thanks for your support and for the amazing and tireless efforts of our teachers, ESOs and Admin staff; everyone deserves a well-earned term holiday.
