Dear Parents and Caregivers
The last few weeks have been a busy time for staff as they finalise reports. A lot of time, energy and thought is involved in the reporting process as the teachers work together to moderate grades based on the requirements of the Western Australian Curriculum. Overall, the students have displayed expected growth and you can be pleased with what they have achieved this semester. See below for Parent Teacher Interview information.
Please keep our Year 4 students, who are receiving their 1st Eucharist this weekend, in your prayers. This is a special time for them and their families.

Thankyou to our wonderful helpers. (Mrs Kent, Mrs Sherlock ) and to our parent helper (Mrs Taylor and Mrs Hannigan) and helper /photographer Mr Van Poppel.
Throughout Terms 1 and 2 Year 4G has participated in the Stephanie Alexander program. In the canteen we cut, peeled, prepared and ate food that was freshly grown by us with Mrs Sherlock and prepared by Mrs Kent. Every 3 weeks, 10 new children got to cook. We made hummus, spinach and feta puffs and also yummy pizza. At the same time the other 20 were planting, watering and weeding out at the veggie patches. I recommend this program because it makes you become passionate about eating veggies and cooking!

Grandparents’ Day Date Change: Please be advised that Grandparents’ Day will be held on Friday 1/9 (not 25/8 as was previously communicated). Can you please advise your families to Save The Date.
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.
