News & Events

From Adam Slater, Principal


Dear Families

The last few weeks have been full of school community events, activities, and learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.

Holy Week
Last week, we commenced our Holy Week celebrations with a Palm Sunday liturgy at Bridge Street. The Bridge Street students led us in a prayer and re-enactment of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

Later in the week, students met in the Performing Arts Studio to watch our Year 2–5 students share the events of The Last Supper and Good Friday as outlined in the Gospel.

At the end of Holy Week, students visited the Norwood Parish for our Year 5 and 6 students to engage in a prayerful, guided journey through the Stations of the Cross. Students from all classes contributed artwork to depict each station.

Building Update
Everything is on track for the Bridge Street Multi Purpose Room project to be completed and ready for Vacation Care. We can’t wait for students, teachers, and the community to enjoy using the refurbished learning space.

Championship Year 5/6 Netball Team

We are extremely proud of our Year 5/6 netball team, who won the grand final in overtime. They played so well as a team and never gave up. Well done to coach Chelsea, and thank you to all the families who supported the team every week.

Swimming Carnival

Congratulations to the 17 students who represented our school at the South Australian Catholic Primary Schools Sports Association Swimming Carnival. Well done to our Year 3 student team, who won their age group for Section 4. We also had one Year 4 individual age group champion!

Brisbane Lions visit for Gather Round

Our Physical Education teacher, Mr Dacombe-Bird and School Captain Jack, were very excited to welcome the Brisbane Lions to our school for Gather Round. Students were able to meet the AFL players who led small clinics and get their autographs. Thank you to the SANFL for helping us organise this visit for our school community.

School Picnic

We had an incredible turnout for the school community picnic. I would like to thank our Parents and Friends Committee for organising the event. The weather was perfect, and it was great to see the community gather at the Kensington Gardens Reserve.

Lacrosse sessions in Physical Education

Our William Street students have been fortunate to have coaches from the Redwings Lacrosse team undertake a program in PE lessons.

Crazy Hair Day Fundraiser

Our students (and teachers) relished the opportunity to demonstrate their creative flair for the student-led ‘Crazy Hair Day’ initiative to raise money for Project Compassion.

Pupil-Free Day
Just a reminder that the first and last days of term 2 are pupil-free days to allow valuable time for professional learning for our staff.
