Gospel Value - Love
Love motivated the care provided to the old and the young by Victoire Larmenier.
Let your love for each other be real and from the heart. (1 Peter 1:22)
Unselfish concern for the good of others is shown through patience, kindness, trust, hope, endurance, truth and a strong affection.
Living - Sacramental Program
We have a group of Larmenier students who are undertaking the Sacramental Program this year. They are attending a Welcome Mass this Sunday at St Peter’s Church at 9.30 am. These students are entering into a sacred journey where they will learn about living with Christ as their model and developing a close relationship with God.
Loving - Camp
Our Yr 6 students are off to camp on Monday where will be challenged physically, mentally and spiritually. It is also an opportunity where they can show unselfish concern for the good of others through patience, kindness, trust, hope, endurance and truth. We look forward to hearing the many stories of their adventures and sharing some of the photos from their trip.
Learning - Naplan
Our Yr 3 and Yr 5 students have been undertaking Naplan assessments this week. Naplan provides a small snapshot of student learning, at one point in time in a limited time frame. As a school, it is valuable to be able to look at the big picture for patterns of learning and opportunities for further focus. On an individual level, whilst it can provide a picture of a student’s learning in literacy and numeracy, it certainly does not capture or reflect the wide range of knowledge and skills that a student has developed from their varying and rich educational experiences.

Public Health Service are aware of gastroenteritis (gastro) outbreaks in the community, and would like to remind everyone to please remain vigilant for gastroenteritis and to put in place appropriate measures.
Infectious gastroenteritis (‘gastro’) is a short-term illness caused by infection and inflammation of the digestive system. Symptoms may include diarrhoea (frequent or loose stools), vomiting and abdominal pain. There are many causes of gastroenteritis, with the most common being a viral infection.
Infectious gastroenteritis is spread very easily. It may be spread via vomit and faeces (poo) of an infected person or contaminated objects, food or water.
Infection control recommendations:
- Children become unwell with vomiting and/or diarrhoea while at childcare or school should go home.
- Children should not return to childcare or school until at least 48 hours after symptoms have resolved.
- Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after any contact with a sick person
- Children are to be reminded to wash their hands before eating and after using the toilet.
