Welcome back to Term Two. I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing break. We are in full swing already at school with many new and exciting learning experiences occurring in the classrooms and a very busy few weeks ahead of us.
This term we have a number of different both in school and extra-curricular events that we would love to see as many students from St Brigid’s involved in including the ANZAC Day march, Emerald Show, School Athletics Carnival just to mention a few. Please keep your eye on the electronic boards at the front of the school and the notices in the newsletter for the dates and times for these events.
This year as part of “Year of the Youth” our students will not only be attending masses at the St Patrick church on Friday’s (please see roster in the newsletter) they will also be participating in these. During these masses Francie Hartley (Parish Secretary) and Rod Devlin (Parish member) will be talking the students through the different parts of the mass and explaining what is happening and why.
This term also sees the commencement of the Parish Sacramental program. This program is run through the Parish in conjunction with St Brigid’s and St Patricks. The students who are involved in this program will be making their Rite of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist. The information session and sign-on was held last week, however if you are interested in your children being part of this program (Years 4 and above) please contact the Parish office for more information. We wish all the students who have begun this journey all the best over the coming terms in this amazing and blessed experience.
I hope everyone has a lovely week and I look forward to seeing everyone at the ANZAC Day March on Wednesday – meeting at the Lions Park at 10:00 in formal uniform, do not forget hats and drink bottles.
