School Gospel Value - Respect
Victoire Larmenier showed consideration, appreciation and regard for the rights, values and beliefs of all.
As often as you did it to one of these….you did it to me. (Matt 25:40)
The unique dignity of each person is held in high esteem and with special consideration. Without exception, we show thoughtfulness, courtesy and care.
These awards are given out each fortnight at assembly and are based on the school's Gospel values. For the last few weeks the focus Gospel Value has been Love. Not only am I looking out for students demonstrating the values but so are staff. Any staff member can nominate a student for a Principal Award. At the end of the month, all the recipients will be invited to a special Principal’s Morning Tea. Last week our recipients of the Principal’s Award were
Lachlan Williams - For being kind to a fellow classmate when they needed it most.
Ira Radford - For stopping during the Cross Country to show care and compassion to a student who had fallen over during the race.
Harper Burn - For being loving and patient with a prep student in teaching her how to use the fireman’s pole in the playground.
The current Gospel Value is Respect.
The winning House for the Cross Country was announced at assembly this week with Guilford coming out on top. The final tallies were Guilford 724, Darcy 571 and Upton 550. Well done to all our students who participated and particularly those who placed in the top six as they are off to the NIJSSA Cross Country on Wed (7th June). Also, a big well done to all the students who turned up on the day even though running the Cross Country is very challenging for them. We are so proud that you showed resilience and persistence with something even though it was hard.
Cyber Safety Parent Information Session
We had our Cyber Safety parent information session during the week. It was a great opportunity to hear about concerns regarding internet safety and social media as well as share ideas about strategies.

Grade 2 Newsletter
In Grade 2 we have been learning to start our writing in a powerful way by using sizzling starts. We have been doing this by starting our writing in an exciting way, with either a sound effect, some action or somebody talking.
Here are a few examples of our fabulous writing to the prompt “through the window”.
Look out the iceberg is going to hit soon! Get to a lifeboat and quickly!
Paddy: Lookout Ironman is falling!
Blue Ironman finds a pillow and places it quickly under him.
“AHHHH! Big Foot is chasing me and chocolate is going everywhere! Help me!!”
Run!! Spongebob is getting closer!
Charlie: “Ow! That hurts! You with the big foot! Watch where you step!
