Newsletter Term Four

 

Week 1

 

 

Welcome back to another term.  Whilst Mrs Walsh was away last term she visited the Isle of Capri and visited St Michael's Church.  The Capri church is connected to a story of St Michael as a protector, symbolised today by a small bell.  We now have a small bell hanging in the the front office area, to bring us all St Michael's luck.

The kinders had a great time with the fire fighters last Thursday. They learnt some important lessons about what to do if there is a fire and they had a lot of fun seeing the fire truck and spraying some water around.  A big thank you to Mr McGrath (Mitchell's dad in KD) who helped to organise this visit.
