Welcome to the St Kieran Catholic Primary School Website
The end of the school year is fast approaching and it is hard to believe that there is only one week of school left. For our Year 6 students the last week is always filled with mixed emotions. The students are excited about moving on to high school with all the opportunities on offer, but at the same time they know that they are leaving St Kieran school where they have been nurtured throughout their schooling. Their Graduation Mass next Tuesday will be a special time for them to reflect and thank God for the many blessings they have received. This will be followed by their Dinner Dance where they will share a meal followed by the opportunity to demonstrate their prowess at dancing, having completed dance lessons at school. Thank you to Mrs Tania Cleverly for teaching dance to our Year 6 students, I am really looking forward to seeing them all on the dance floor. Tuesday night promises to be a memorable evening for the Year 6’s.
Our Whole School End of Year Assembly will be held on Thursday 12 December at 8.45am. The Pre-Primary students will help us to prepare for Christmas by acting out the Nativity story and the school choir will share some Christmas spirit with their beautiful singing. This assembly will also be an opportunity for us to farewell staff members who are leaving. I hope you will be able to join us.
Our wonderful Year 2B students commenced their assembly last Friday with prayers thanking God for their gift of memory and these were written in the form of poetry. They also entertained us by acting out the story “A strange visitor.” Their recitation of the story and actions accompanying it were delightful. Thank you Mrs Day and Year 2B for a wonderful assembly.
Parents if you are purchasing new school sports uniforms, there is no faction T shirt as part of the new uniform. Students will wear the new blue T shirt on both of their sport days.
You may have noticed that on sport carnival days we have an imbalance of numbers in some of our factions. Mr Hort was wondering if there were any families who would consider changing factions to help rectify this problem.
Last night we had our final School Board meeting for the year and I am pleased to announce that Mr Neil Alessandrino has been re-elected as Chairperson, Mrs Andrina Campeotto as secretary and Mr Hugh Zimmerman as treasurer. Congratulations and sincere thanks for taking on these important roles.
