ANZAC Day 2015
It was with great pride that we watched Grace, James, Ella and Curren march in this year's ANZAC Day parade to represent Our Lady of the Cape.

It was a vey moving service with a large number of people in attendance which is always wonderful to see.

Our students conducted themselves beautifully and with great respect and understanding of this important day in Australian history. Mr Morrison and I were very proud of Grace, James, Ella and Curren.

They were lucky enough to have a photo with a true veteran Mr Keith McKinnon!

Mr Keith McKinnon and OLC students Ella, James, Grace and Curren.
One last shot for the paparazzi as we get the once over! We looked very sharp!!
The beautiful wreath created by Wendy Gillam - it was beautiful!

Graduation Shirts....

27th April 2015
Dear Silver Room Parents,
Re: Graduation Shirts
This year for the Year 6 Graduating class it has been decided that for our Leavers Shirts this year we will use our existing OLC Polo Shirt.
We will design a piece of art for the shirt which will appear with our school crest on the front and “Graduates 2015” along with our chosen artwork and student names on the back.
You have two options in regards to the shirt: 1.You can provide a clean and tidy polo shirt that your child may already have. 2.You can purchase a new polo shirt from the uniform shop.
The total cost for the work to be done on the shirts is $7.90 each. This can be paid directly to myself or through the office. This amount will need to be paid by Friday 15th May.
These shirts can be worn on Tuesdays and Fridays instead of the normal sports shirts.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Kind regards,

Welcome Back to Term Two!

Good morning, Here is the Homework that has been assigned for this week:

Tuesday 21st April - Friday 24th April. Reading –I ask that the students read for a maximum of 15 minutes each night. If possible, can you ask your child to read out loud to you regularly? It is a great way to show your interest in their learning and it is beneficial for your child to hear themselves. It also helps them to correct any mistakes, as well as giving them practise for our Assemblies etc. Please make sure that your child writes the name of the book they are reading and the number of pages read in their diary in the appropriate space.

Diary –the students are given time every day to write all appropriate notes in their diary. I ask that you check your child’s diary each night and sign it. I also use the diary as a way to let you know how your child is going or if I need to see you?
