Pizza Pool Parties & Marian Water Fun Day
This week our students in Year 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed their annual Pizza Pool Party, with many smiles and laughs being enjoyed as students splashed and cooled off in the College pool. Our Marian Campus students had a wonderful time on the water slides today, and the excitement on their faces was a wonderful culmination of the busy term.
We hope the event enabled students to celebrate their hard work and achievements from across the year with their friends and teachers.
Year 2 Assembly – Farewell to Marian Campus
Our Year 2 students performed a beautiful rendition of the Dr Suess book “Oh! The places you will go!” which is a very accurate reflection of what lies ahead for them as they transition over to our Lavalla Campus.
Their entrance to the song ‘Fame’ also set the scene beautifully, for the celebration and reflection of all their wonderful learning and achievements across the Marian Campus.
A very big thank you to their teachers for preparing such a wonderful farewell event.
Thank you to our families for joining us on Wednesday evening for our Primary Carols & Awards evening. I have had overwhelmingly positive feedabck frgom families and teachers on the atmosphere of the evening. Our students sung beuatifully, and the sense of Newman College community was very evident across the evening.
A special thanks to Ms Ava Bilton for her countless hors of preparation in teaching the carols to our students, and to our Newman Voices choir for their support of the event also.
