The annual Chess Tournament has begun! This year we have a record 25 students competing for the SJMS Chess Trophy - from Year 2 to Year 7. We conducted the Tournament draw on Tuesday in Week 1 under the strict supervision of all competitors. Many players have already made it though to the next round. The Tournament will run for all of Term 3 on Tuesdays in the year 2SB classroom.

Book Week will be celebrated across Australia in most schools and libraries from Saturday 19th August concluding Saturday 26th August. The 2017 Book Week theme is ‘Escape to Everywhere’. Next Friday  25th August we celebrate 2017 Book Week with our St Joseph’s Memorial Book Week Parade which will be held in the Piazza from 9:30am until 10:15am. Students will participate in various activities over the next week to celebrate Book Week. It is always wonderful to see Parents and Caregivers around schools during this week, reading books and modelling the enjoyment that reading brings! If you haven’t done so, and you have a current Catholic School Police Clearance, ask your child’s teacher how you can be involved.

THE COUNTDOWN IS ON! There are only 4 weeks until this year's Quiz Night!  We always try to make each year's Quiz Night bigger, better and more fun than the previous one.  This year's theme of ‘Let's Celebrate’ will set the mood for the night as we are celebrating all that we love about SJMS, in the 75th year of the William Street campus. Please come along and celebrate with us. Tickets are available NOW from the Bridge St office.

As well as the Quiz itself, there will be games, tables upon tables of silent auction items, our fabulous wine wall which will include some valuable wines donated by local celebrated wineries, major auction items and much more.

Some of the major auction items so far include:

  • a 2017 Adelaide Crows guernsey, signed by the 2017 team;
  • a football, also signed by the 2017 Crows team;
  • a Norwood Redlegs Football guernsey, signed by the team;
  • passes for 3 months, 24 hour free parking at the Norwood Hoyts complex; and
  • a $500 voucher for bathroom ware from Caroma; plus many other surprises.

Our silent auction items are endless, including hampers put together from your donations and those generously donated by local businesses and families within the school. I assure you there is something for everyone!  Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we give details of other amazing auction items and if you haven't already, click ‘Going’ to our 2017 SJMS Quiz Night event on Facebook. 

We are still collecting donations and sponsorships, so it’s not too late to contact me if you have something you would like to donate or know someone who would.  We will have cash and credit card facilities available on the night with BYO all food and drinks.  More information will be available in the next few weeks and I will make contact with the people who have kindly offered to assist with wrapping and setting up. 

For those of you who have asked, our Quiz Night is intended to be an adults only event, so book in your babysitters and make sure you are swatting for those questions!  A reminder that wine wall donations are due Friday 18 August. For safety reasons, we ask that bottles be brought into either office by a parent/carer.
