Dear Parents

We remember at this time that Christ died for us so that we may live. The children have portrayed with great solemnity Christ's entry into Jerusalem, the Last Supper and His passion and Death. Each of these Liturgies have taken place in the Church and I would like to thank all staff who have prepared the children, the children themselves and those who belong to the choir. Please remember in your prayers Mrs Fleming's family. Her father died unexpectedly last week. We also bid au reviour to Mrs Fleming as she and her husband await the birth of their first child. We will be interviewing for a teacher to teach in her place during her maternity leave. I would like to wish all members of the school community a holy, safe and happy Easter break. School returns on Tuesday April 28. Thought for the week: Christ died that we may live.

Holy Week As we celebrate Holy week we renew our commitment to the central event of our faith. Last Sunday we welcomed Jesus as king as he entered Jerusalem. This evening we will celebrate the Eucharist remembering all that Jesus gave to us at the Last Supper. The central belief of our religious faith is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is affirmed in our memorial acclamation in the Eucharistic prayer: `Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again'. In the Eucharist we unite with Jesus sacrifice of love. In faith we celebrate his victory over death. In hope we look forward to his coming again at the end of time. Wishing everybody a happy, holy and safe Easter. Stations of the Cross Thank you to all those children who have volunteered to help at the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday. A reminder to meet at the Church at 8am for breakfast and final practice. The Stations of the Cross will commence at 10am. It has been great to see so many children volunteering to help. Sacrament of Reconciliation Year Four will celebrate reconciliation on Wednesday 13th May. All family and friends are most welcome to attend. Mother's Day Liturgy Our Mother's Day Liturgy will be held on Friday 8th May at 10.15am in the Church. As part of the Easter season we will acknowledge and pray for all mothers and significant others who care for us in the same way that Mary cared for Jesus. David Ison

To the Heylbutt family (Blake KS) on the birth of a baby girl.


The social skill for the first week next term is:

Being sure of yourself.

We are asking parents to please not send `Yogurt tubes' to school with the children for recess or lunch. Unfortunately by the end of lunch time the school playground and sometimes the children's clothes are covered in yogurt. Due to yogurt being continually dropped and thrown on the ground, fights with yogurt and the wastage, we will no longer sell yogurt at the Canteen.



For Science and Technology this term in 1CI, we have been learning about HOT and COLD. Did you know?..... When it's hot, dogs pant to cool down. Inside an igloo it is warm, not cold. We use a fridge to keep our food fresh. Hail is made of water that has become frozen. Warm colours are red, orange and yellow. Cool colours are blue, purple and green. By Amanda Chang



The Newsletter was sent to all families via email last week. We are having a few teething problems, so some families did not receive their copies.

- If a stone is really, really, hot you could fry an egg on it. - When a person sweats, it cools their body down. By Jarrod French - When you're cold and you rub your arms, you warm up. That's called friction. By Joshua Burt - If the suns rays shine on your skin and you don't have sunscreen, your skin gets damaged and it looks red because the blood is closer to your skin. - If you're very cold (because you've been playing outside) and you hop into the bath. The water feels extra hot. By Amy Martin

The Rugby League Knockout is being held on Friday 15th May for boys in Years 3 ­ 6. Unfortunately Year 2 boys will not be able to participate as they have an excursion on the same day. I am pleased to inform that the removal of contaminated filling from the Saint Michael's Convent building site has now been concluded. During the period of soil removal, we have requested that P Clifton and Associates undertake monitoring for airborne asbestos fibres at the site every day. The monitoring was carried out in accordance with the requirements of the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission Asbestos Code of Practice and Guidance notes. The results from daily monitoring indicate that no measurable risk was posed to persons in the affected area during excavation work. To ensure that the site was safe for users, at the completion of the site remediation work, we have collected dust samples from Saint Michael's playgroup building, the Occasional Care Centre and the Supported Accommodation building. These samples were forwarded to ESP laboratories for analysis to determine the presence of asbestos and all returned with no asbestos risk. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation during the period of remediation. Sister Ailsa Mackinnon RSM AM Congregation Leader ! !
