Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for continuing to work in partnership with our teachers and school in support of your child's learning during remote learning. A special thank you for the feedback about the success of the alternative learning day - screens down day - on Wednesday. We have loved hearing about the joy, connection, family time and communication that was enabled in your family. We have enjoyed seeing some of the great artistic, explorative, creative & imaginative experiences of our students. The day was proof that we don't need screens to be learning!



It is with pleasure that I can now announce the appointment of Mrs Val Sheahan to the substantive Assistant Principal position at St Patrick’s. We have been blessed with Mrs Sheahan’s leadership in the acting role this year and are delighted to have her joining the team into the future. Please join me in congratulating Val.

Kindness in COVID meals

Yesterday our wonderful and talented canteen convenor Leayra cooked up another storm of dinners for people in need in this covid lockdown time. This week the delicious dinners are chicken and vegetable curry. The parish and the Sapphire Community Pantry will again distribute meals to those in need. If you, or someone you know needs a cooked meal please email me and I can put their name on the list for a meal next week or into the future.


Online Safety

A couple of years ago Jordan from YSafe came to St Patrick’s for staff, student and parent education into online safety. The YSafe organisation has offered us access to an online module ‘Communicating Safely Online, the module is 21minutes and worth watching alongside with your child / children.


The Sudsy Challenge

You may remember the Orange Sky Laundry organisation for whom we have raised funds in the past. They are an organisation promoting dignity for the homeless giving people opportunities to shower and wash their clothes in mobile vans around the country. Mrs Grant, Mrs Sheahan & Mrs Ferris and a good few of the staff are joining me in the Sudsy Challenge this coming week. The challenge is to "Keep your kit on for three days, talk about it with those around you and help raise funds and awareness to support our friends experiencing homelessness." If you or your children would like to support us you can wear the same clothes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and you may like to sponsor us too. Thanks for your support!
Many blessings on a restful weekend. Get out the screens down grid and have a little more fun with as a family! Stay safe. Stay connected. Let us know if there is anything we can do to support you and your family.
