Dear Parents and Caregivers

It was wonderful to see some of our students become fully initiated members of the church when they celebrated the Sacrament of the Eucharist on Sunday afternoon. This is a very important moment in the lives of these students as they become full and active members of the Eucharistic community.

On Monday students came together to celebrate All Saints Day with mass for our Years 2 – 6 students and a Liturgy of the Word for our Preschool – Year 1 students.

All Saints Day, has its origins in the Roman Catholic Church of the Middle Ages. Reflecting on the lives and examples of the saints had been a widespread practice for Christians since the earliest days of the church. By the early Middle Ages, the liturgical calendar was filled with the commemorations of hundreds of saints and martyrs. Many of these lesser observances were combined into a joint celebration called All Saints Day.

This was a very special day for our students at William Street as it was the first mass Fr Chris Jenkins celebrated. We welcome Fr Chris to our community and look forward to him joining us at many of our school celebrations.

Parish Assembly / Picnic

An invitation to all families to join the Parish for their Parish Assembly and Picnic after the 10am mass on Sunday.

Building Update

Work on our Performing Arts Studio is certainly coming along. Over the holidays, the electrical work leading to the building was mostly completed while the students were off site. The frame is almost completely up and I look forward to seeing the walls going up soon. It certainly is an exciting time.

School Concert

This term on Thursday 25 November, our students from Preschool to Year 6 will showcase what they have been working on with Mrs Williams. We all look forward to coming together as a community to celebrate their hard work. Details regarding the purchase of tickets has been sent out via the Skoolbag app.

Reports

Semester 2 reports will be sent home on Friday 3 December with your child. If your child is not at school on the day, it will be available for you to collect from the School Office until Wednesday 8 December. Any uncollected reports will be mailed home after this date.

Yours sincerely
