Carnevale was enjoyed by all last week on Tuesday, a great community event which marked the day before our Lenten Journey. Special thanks to Gail Mantel who coordinated Carnevale, all the staff who supported stalls and organisation of the day and to all the parents that helped throughout the day. Our Year 7 students lead by example showing initiative when they contributed to the setting up of Carnevale and were excellent role models to our younger students as leaders in our school community.

PE AND SWIMMING CARNIVAL
Mr Martin (PE Teacher) has spent the last few weeks preparing a select group of children for this year's Swimming Carnival which was held at Magill. The SJMS Swimming Squad placed second over all - a fantastic effort!I thank those children (and their parents) for their commitment to this event. Special thanks also to Anthony Martin, Matthew Harrison and Amy Parker for their support of this extra-curriculum sporting activity.
This event cannot happen without our great parent volunteers, many thanks to all the parents who came along to support their children and who had significant roles during the carnival. Well done to all our swimmers, the great attitude, respect and support for each other.
Last week I attended the Year 4 and Year 5 Camp at Mylor. What a fantastic experience for our children to participate in. This week the Year 3 children attended their first camp at Narnu Farm, it was a positive and successful first camp for all involved. There were some very tired children around the school upon returning to SJMS, however they have come back with many stories to tell about their experiences. Camps are great learning experiences where children are challenged to pursue skills which are not normally part of their everyday school routines and where life skills come into fruition, our children will remember these experiences for years to come. Special thanks to all the staff who attended the camp, their extended duties and care for the children is much appreciated. For more photos please see the current newsletter.
