Things Are Changing

Hi Parents,

The following note will be sent home with your child tomorrow.


28th November, 2019
Dear Year Six Parents,
Re: Health and next Religious Education Unit to be explored in Year Six Term 4
The basic purpose for which God created the human body is so that human beings can express the love and the goodness within them. Sexuality is the distinctive ways males and females express love and goodness through their thoughts, feelings, bodies and relationships.
The next Religious Education unit begins by exploring the Catholic understanding of sexuality. It focuses in particular upon the special way husband and wives express their sexuality in the Sacrament of Marriage.
The unit introduces to the children ways in which Jesus always expresses love and goodness through his body. It then presents how he makes his followers ‘new creatures’ through Baptism so that they can do the same. The Rite of Baptism and symbols used during the Baptismal ceremony will also be explored.
Finally, the unit explo…

Term 4, Week 7

Hi Parents,
Week 7 is already upon us and before we know it, the Year Six class will have graduated from OLC.
Quote of the Week:

Fire Drill - Tuesday 26th November Just a reminder that there was an important email sent out last week outlining the plans for this afternoon. Please check in to make sure you are ready for this.
MARY MACKILLOP ORIENTATION DAY
Students attending Mary MacKillop next year will be spending Thursday at the college. I know some kids are catching the bus with their older siblings or peers. This is a great opportunity for the kids to show a little independence and responsibility. If you’re planning on dropping your child off, it might be an idea to get in contact with some other parents to organise a group of them to catch the bus together. Best of luck to both students and parents!

GRADUATION MASS / AWARDS You would have already received a ‘save-the-date’ flyer for the upcoming Graduation Night and I’m sure the Year 5 parents will be sending out formal invitations soon.…

Year Six Performance Assembly

Hi Parents,
I have to apologise for any confusion regarding the Year Six Performance Assembly which WILL NOT be this coming Friday. Unfortunately, the date for the assembly has remained on the school calendar for the last few weeks even though the Year Six class will now be performing the Nativity Play as part of the Christmas Concert on the 10th December.
This year’s Nativity Play is titled ‘The Inn-Spectors’.
The inn-spectors are in Bethlehem and they are not pleased. A stable is no place for visitors and their newborn baby, and, it really is a health and safety nightmare! Can the inn-spectors be convinced that the stable really is fit for a King?’
The Nativity Play will be similar to the musical that they participated in last year in that it will be complete with costumes, lighting and sound. I am sure that you will all thoroughly enjoy watching the Year 6’s performing and I am sure that they will get an even bigger kick out of performing in front of you and a packed out hall. Ge…
