Dear Parents and Caregivers
Children truly are a joy and a wonder of God's creation. Their smiles, optimistic outlook, openness to new encounters with others their age and the way they embrace life gives one great hope for the future and make them fun to be around.
Online booking of interviews will be available in the coming weeks.
"We need to elevate our thought processes and install mental pictures of success and achievement. In this way we can look down on our problems instead of looking up to them."
"By changing the inner attitude of our mind, we can change the outer expression of our life. Attitude is contagious. Positive attitude gives energy to you and to those around you."
"There are two ways to look at life, positively or negatively. The choice is ours and there always is a choice provided we take charge of our attitude and don’t permit someone else to choose it for us. Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude towards us. A positive attitude is the outward expression of a mind that dwells on positive matters; 'As a person thinks in his heart, so he is'. Proverbs 23:7"

Cake stall Rep Required for 2017: Unfortunately both Kath and I need to hand over the roll of cake stall coordinator this year..... we require one or two parents to take over the coordinating of the cake stalls, usually run once a fortnight. It is a great opportunity to assist all classrooms as funds raised go directly to the teachers of those year groups. This is a fun and low key role that also enables you to meet new parents in our school community. If you are interested in having a chat and getting more info please call either Katherine Lamont (0417183060) or Adele Swan (0413126644).

OLG Run for Fun commences Term 2
“OLG Run for Fun” is a free running club where kids of all ages and fitness levels can come together before school to run and exercise in a positive and supportive environment. Parents and grandparents are also welcome to come along for fitness and quality time with their children.
We all know running is a great way to get fit, but it offers so much more. Kids who exercise in the morning are generally more engaged and focussed during lesson time. Running clubs enable kids to build friendships and have fun. Running builds healthy hearts and minds and brings joy to children.
The Running Club is run by volunteer parents each Tuesday and Thursday morning during school terms and will commence on Tuesday 2nd May 2017. It will include some warm up activities and games and there will be a couple of running courses, of different lengths, around Charles Riley Reserve to suit different ages and fitness levels. There will be no free breakfast or awards - it’s just for participation and fun.
As the Running Club is run by parents, students in Year 3 or below must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure adequate supervision. A permission slip will need to be completed before your child can participate. Permission slips will be available for signing at the first session your child chooses to attend.
Days: Every Tuesday and Thursday morning (starting 2nd May 2017)
The body achieves what the mind believes.
