FREE DRESS DAY Friday 26th June
On Friday 26th June, in conjunction with PICNIC DAY, the students will have the opportunity to wear FREE DRESS. This will cost each child a Gold Coin Donation. All money raised will be donated to the All Saints Parish St Vincent de Paul Conference to enable them to support those families who need a hand to get ‘Back on Track’. Please discuss this with your children so they may have some understanding how they can help those who are on the margins in our local community. Some of our wonderful Year 6 Students have started the ball rolling by raising over $60 with their “Jelly Bean” Guessing Fundraiser. Free Dress Day Rules apply: - Closed-in shoes and school hat must be worn - No short shorts - No inappropriate wording on clothes Thank you for supporting this Free Dress Day.
FIRST EUCHARIST MASSES
On the weekend many of our students received Eucharist for the first time and completed their sacraments of Initiation into the Catholic faith. It is such a privilege to be part of these masses. Thanks to the sacramental team for all the organising and preparation, the group leaders, staff who have helped out and the inspiration of Fr Ron on all of our students at All Saints who have made this year’s Sacraments very special.
Junior Athletics Carnival
A HUGE congratulations to all the students for their excellent efforts at the Junior Athletics Carnival last Friday. The students had an awesome time and I saw excellent sportsmanship on display throughout the morning. A special thanks to all staff at All Saints and the parents who helped out on the day – your tireless efforts contributed to the day running as smoothly as possible. Thanks also to all parents who came along to support their child on the morning – the level of support at All Saints is incredible and it was great to see so much support for the students! Congratulations to Mollison, who were the winners on the day.
On Wednesday 24th June, the All Saints 800m event will be held here at school from 9:00-10:45am. Students aged 8-12 years are welcome to nominate themselves for this event, and will have the opportunity to represent All Saints at North District and Zone 6 Athletics next term. All participants will also gain House points for the Senior Athletics Carnival! If your child would like to participate in the event, please ensure they bring their sports uniform and running shoes with them next Wednesday, and they will have the opportunity to run.
Senior Athletics Carnival
On Thursday 25th June, the Senior Athletics Carnival will be held at Bowden Park, Geebung. Programs for the day will be sold on Monday and Tuesday mornings next week in the Tuckshop Area before school from 8:15-8:45am at a cost of 50c each. I encourage all parents and students to purchase a copy of the program, as it lists the race your child will be in for the sprints and 200m events, as well as the relay teams for House relays.
If your child is catching the bus to Bowden Park, please ensure they are at school in the Undercover Area no later than 8:20am as the bus needs to leave at 8:30am sharp. If you are taking your child to Bowden Park, please arrive at 8:45am.
