Tomorrow, the St Francis of Assisi school community will be celebrating Grandparents Day. We would like to invite ALL children’s grandparents or special friends to attend a morning of fun and enjoyment.
We have the following activities planned for the morning:
9:30 – 11.00 Each grade will present a musical item in the hall
11:00 – 11:30 Morning Tea (BYO - Picnic Morning Tea)
11:30 – 12:00 Classroom visits
After the performance in the hall, we invite you to bring a picnic morning tea to share with your own family at recess time in the Peace Garden.
We then invite you to come into the classrooms to see the wonderful work the children are doing.
This day is a wonderful celebration for grandparents and children to come together and value what we at St Francis see as really important, our God, our children, our staff and our families. We hope you will join us at this very special occasion.
Ninja Colour Run
Our Ninja Colour Run launch took place last week and the Hall was full of excited children as Mr Young gave everyone a sneak preview of the amazing prizes that ANY student can win!
Whether a bike, drone, big screen TV, trips to Questacon, sports gear galore, books, pyjama day or even a uniform free day is your kind of prize it is all there for a member of our student community to win.
Students are encouraged to seek donations from family and friends and these can be sent in to either the Front Office or using the QKR! app (details are on the Colour Run notes that have been sent home).
This week ANY student who has collected a donation and brought it into the Front Office, or collected it through QKR! will be able to enjoy an indoor soccer competition at lunchtime on Friday. The teachers will also be putting together their own team and look forward to defeating every student team that turns up!
Parents, your opportunity to have some fun on the day out on the course with your kids comes in the form of being able to squirt them with colour!! If you want to grab a bottle full of colour and 'decorate' the kids in our school then please get in touch via email, phone call or written note with Mrs Aiken (Yr 5 teacher) and she'll give you the chance to have some fun on the day as well. Be warned though Mums and Dads these spots fill up quickly so we will operate on a first come, first served basis!

Thank you to everyone who brought empty bottles and cans to the school last year. Money raised was donated to the Drought Relief appeal at the end of 2018. We raised a total of $137.40 for this cause. Thank you to Liam R for initiating this fundraising idea!
Please continue to bring your empty drink containers to school. This year, money raised through the Container Deposit Scheme will go towards new toys for the playground. We have already purchased some new sand pit toys this year for the children's enjoyment at recess and lunch times.
