Newman News Term 2 Week 2: From the Leader of Early Childhood

Highlights from past two weeks 

New Staff

We wish to welcome Ms Sarah Francia to our College Community. Ms Francia is the classroom teacher for Year 1 Red. Jordan Day-Perkins returns this term as the Year 1 Red Classroom teacher. We hope you will join with us in making them feel welcomed and supported.

ANZAC Assembly

Year 2 Blue students and staff led us in our ANZAC Prayer Assembly last Wednesday. Thank you to Naomi Shepherd for coming to share her story with us. Staff and students were enthralled with her reflection of her contribution of service, past and present, that she has given to the Armed Forces.

Important Information for the next two weeks

Photo Day

A reminder to all families that our photo day is on Friday 14 May. It is very important that all students attend wearing the correct uniform on this day. Years 1 and 2 must wear full winter uniform, Pre-Primary students must wear full PE uniform.

We hope that all students can be present at school this day, as school photos often become a treasured memory that are looked upon with great fondness and affection in the years to come.

Mother’s Day

As part of the Business and Enterprise Program, Education Support Students will be creating a Mother’s Day stall selling items they have created and made, on Friday 7 May from 8.00am. These items make beautiful gifts and is a great opportunity to buy that special little something for Sunday.

We encourage all families to join us for our Mother’s Day Liturgy on Thursday 6 May at St Cecilia’s Church from 9:00am, presented by Year 1.

Family Fun Friday

Activities will recommence on Friday 7 May. We encourage parents to participate in this initiate.
