Mary Mackillop Testing

Hi Parents,

Just a reminder that the Year 6 students attending Mary MacKillop next year will be attending a testing morning this Friday. All Year Six students should be wearing their school sports uniform as per usual.

We will be picked up at 10am and arrive back at school at 12:45pm.

3 students haven't given me their signed permission slips. If your child asks you for it, can you please hand write a note that says:

'I give my child _________________________ permission to attend the Year 7 2019 testing day on

Friday 9th November 2018.

Thank you,

Mr Jones

Mini Vinnies

Hi Parents,

For the month of November, Mrs Derricks walks a handful of Year 6 students to the church to help with any cleaning that is needed. This will occur every Wednesday between recess and lunch. The plan is to give each student the opportunity to volunteer their time to help out the local community.

Please let me know if you did not want your child to participate during this time.

Kind regards,

Mr Jones

Confirmation Home Mass Reminder

Hi Parents,

Just a few things regarding the Confirmation Home Mass this Tuesday.

All Year Six students are strongly encouraged to attend.

The Martin's home address: 20 Wylarah Way, Quindalup

Please be there before 5:30pm for a prompt start. 

Boys are bringing a plate of something savoury and girls are bringing a plate of something sweet. If your plate requires heating on the night can I suggest that you arrive a little earlier and bring it on a dish that can go straight into the oven.

I have told the kids to BYO plates, cups, serviettes and cutlery. This will help our environment and help the Martin Family with any washing up.

BYO drinks. Please be aware that this is an alcohol free event.

The Mass will take place on a grassed area. You might like to bring a picnic rug and/or some camping chairs. 

Thank you, look forward to seeing you all there!

Mr Jones

Hi Parents and Students,
Firstly, I would like to say a BIG WELCOME BACK! It’s great to finally enjoying some warmer weather. Secondly, I would like to say GO THE EAGLES – PREMIERS 2018! Such an exciting game to watch with a great result to match.
Quote of the Week:

In preparation for the Graduation dinner, the children will be getting a group shot taken by some Year 5 parents on Wednesday afternoon.
Each year the Lion’s Club involve the Year 6’s with an international Peace Poster competition. This year’s theme is ‘Kindness Matters”. Your child may come home to discuss the theme and get any possible ideas for their art work. Brainstorming and drafting their art work can be done at home but the actual artwork will be completed at home. The due date for the completed artwork is Monday 22nd October.

If you are looking to order a Jungle Book DVD, please see Fran in the office or visit the school website to complete your order.

Term 3 Numeracy Holiday Revision Booklet

Hi Parents,

I have made up a numeracy revision booklet for the kids over the holidays. It is not compulsory, however it would be beneficial for your child to practise the different concepts. They can also access the different concepts we have covered this term via Mathletics.

Your child has either been given a hard copy of the booklet or they can access it through their Numeracy folder on One Note.

Enjoy the holidays, wherever you may be, and I'll see you all next term!

Kind regards,

Mr Jones
