Happy Father’s Day
Happy Father’s Day to all our dads and grandads. I hope you enjoy the love of your children and family on Sunday.
We look forward to celebrating with you as a school community this Friday 1st September at 12 noon in the church and following with a shared lunch in family groups. Please see RE News for further information.

This week we welcome Sarah Gale to our school staff. Sarah will be replacing Jac Wheadon in the library on a Thursday and Friday. Sarah brings with her a deep passion for children’s literature and a desire to help children develop their own passion for reading.
3 Way Conversations
Next Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th September from 1.30 to 6.00 we will be holding 3 Way Conversations between teachers, students and parents. These ‘conversations’ are a fantastic opportunity for your child/ren to share their learning from the last semester and their goals for future learning. Please follow instructions below to book a time for each of your children. We have allowed 20 minutes - 15 minutes for each conversation and 5 minutes to move from one teacher to the next. All families are required to make a booking for their child/ren.
This week we will be advertising for two teachers to join our school staff for the 2018 school year. With Emily Mullane taking maternity leave and myself taking leave to volunteer overseas, we will be two teachers short for next year. We would be hoping to appoint within the next 3 weeks.
St Columba’s School Concert 2017 DVD
A professional DVD is available of our school concert at a cost of $25. If you would like to purchase a DVD please call into the office to complete an order form.
Payment must be made when you place an order.
EFTPOS is available or you may prefer to pay by cash or cheque.
Orders must be placed by Friday, September 8th, 2017
Naplan results were sent home with children in Grades 3 and 5 last week.The NAPLAN assessments help to build a picture of the child as a learner. Please remember that it is only one piece of the puzzle though. We would encourage parents to celebrate the successes their children have experienced in NAPLAN and as always if you have any concerns or queries please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
Our next assembly will be held on Friday 8th September at 2.30pm in the school hall. LG 9 will lead this assembly. All welcome.
