Dear Families and Friends,
Our newsletter this week celebrates the end of Term 3. We have enjoyed a very successful term learning together with some very memorable events such as our unforgettable evening together under the stars with our We Are One concert. We also shared learning goals for the students at the Conversations for Learning, enjoyed dressing up at the Book Character parade and enjoyed celebrating Father's Day at breakfast with a very entertaining Father's Day assembly.
Last Friday St Francis of Assisi hosted the annual combined Catholic School Public Speaking competition. We enjoyed having the Year 6 students join us from the other six urban Catholic Primary Schools. A representative from each school presented a two minute prepared speech on the topic Water – how is our growing population affecting our water supply and what can we do to improve it? Seven Year Six students representing their schools then presented a one minute impromptu speech on an unknown topic. We thank our judges for the event Kaylha Cartwright Idelle Bolwell (Year 12 students from MacKillop Catholic College), Maree GGGGG and Annylse from the Catholic Education Office.
Roy Jansan was our representative for St Francis. He spoke with expression and confidence and represented himself and the school proudly.
All the representatives spoke very well and made predicting the outcome of who would be the overall winner very challenging. We congratulate the representative ????? from St Paul's who was judged to be the winner for the day.
The day continued with a ?????of activities and we send our gratitude to the students of O'Loughlin, ?????, for supporting us in running these events.
