Dear families and friends,
Last week we had a number of our students participate in the Mackillop Catholic College Young Musician of the Year day. Congratulations to Ashleigh Overall, Tilly and Will Blokland, Evie and Ben Barnard and Dexter Bolwell who from all accounts did exceptionally well with their performances.

Also last week, the students were entertained during lunch time by a number of different performances at the annual St Francis talent show; SF Factor. We enjoyed dancing, singing, magic shows and a bit of whip cracking. Well done to all the students involved. Awards will be presented next week.

If you would like to purchase a calendar, diary, pillow case, tea towel with these priceless art pieces for yourself or other family members you still can. Closing date for orders will be next Friday the 27th of September.

This week we have enjoyed hosting Khalehla Cartwright from MacKillop Catholic College. Khalehla has been completing work experience in the early years classes.
