Welcome to Week 5!
This week I have the pleasure of joining The Dent family at Parramatta in celebration with our diocese of 200 years of Catholic Education in Australia. This is quite a milestone. Catholic Education has been a significant element of the education and faith landscape of Australia. Congratulations to all those including our students who have made Catholic Education in Australia so amazing.
Our students will complete their Naplan assessments tomorrow. Well done children. What a great way of showing and celebration how clever you are!
Part of the curriculum for all primary students is the subject of PDHPE. Part of that subject is to work with students in developing healthy selves and relationships. Students in the upper grades are set, as they always have, to cover personal development topics. We continue to respect parents as prime educators of their children. As such when a child poses a sensitive question, teachers will generally invite the student to discuss this at home with their families. This note is just a 'heads-up' if your child does come home asking questions.
We have finally been able to schedule some onsite events starting with the disco in two weeks. Information regarding this is below. We know how much the children really enjoy discos. Be sure to prepare your child for the disco setting to ensure they enjoy the evening.
With appreciation for your ongoing support,
