Newsletter # 5, 2019 teaser FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Parents,
We are coming to the close of what has been a jam packed term and a great start to the year.
The Faction Swimming Carnival was very well supported by parents. It was an excellent carnival and the Tabloid Games contributed to the level of participation and enjoyment of all the students. Congratulations are extended to Mr Docherty for coordinating this.
Thank you also to all the staff who contributed to the successful running of the Carnival and to the parents who assisted as judges.
We congratulate all students on their sportsmanship and Blue Faction on winning the shield.
The School Social last Thursday night provided a wonderful culmination to the student’s dance lessons this term. There was a fantastic turnout from parents and it is tremendous to see this level of support. Students showed how well they had learnt their dances throughout the Term and parents also had an opportunity to join in the fun.
Thank you Taryn from Footsteps for facilitating the dance lessons during the Term and running the Social at St Brigid’s.
Thank you also to the Year 6 parents, particularly Kielley Edwards, who coordinated the support for Mrs Burns, Mr Winter and the Year 6 students with yummy goodies for the stall.

Cath and Josh, the presenters from Kaboom were absolutely amazing. The students thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the interactive approach. You can visit their website for more information on their shows.
