A reading from the holy Gospel according to John
‘I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep.
The hired man, since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep and runs away
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep;
this is because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.
And there are other sheep I have
that are not of this fold,
and these I have to lead as well.
They too will listen to my voice,
and there will be only one flock
and one shepherd.
The Father loves me,
because I lay down my life
in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me;
I lay it down of my own free will,
and as it is in my power to lay it down,
so it is in my power to take it up again;
and this is the command I have been given by my Father.’
On Monday we gathered and reflected on the Resurrection.
Imagine yourself in the best of all possible situations!
The Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who was dead, is now alive again!
By the power of the Living God, Jesus Christ has risen from the dead and is alive forever!
The sadness of yesterday is gone, and the fear of tomorrow has vanished!
Because of what Jesus did on the cross, mankind can be forgiven of sin.
And because He has been raised from the dead, mankind can live forever!
There is no doubt.
We have hope.
We have a future.
Jesus is alive!

The session will briefly outline what happens when children learn to read and define the roles of the reader and the helper. You will be provided with examples of the types of errors children commonly make and prompts that will assist children to problem solve during the reading of a text.
If you are or are planning to volunteer for reading, attending this session is highly recommended.
The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is a point in time assessment of literacy and numeracy skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life. Students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 participate in the annual NAPLAN tests in writing, reading, conventions of language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy.
Our school will be participating in NAPLAN Online between 11 and 21 May 2021.
Excessive preparation for NAPLAN Online is not recommended. Students can use the public demonstration site (https://www.nap.edu.au/online-assessment/public-demonstration-site) to familiarise themselves with the types of questions and tools available in the NAPLAN Online tests.
If you have any questions about NAPLAN Online, please contact your child’s teacher.
We hope to have volunteers in the school this term assisting with school events.
