Week 7 News

Father's Day Breakfast - This fantastic event is on this Friday morning from 7.45am. Please RSVP to Fran Marrell if you have not already done so.

Reconciliation - Mass will be held on Wednesday night beginning at 6pm. It would be wonderful to see as many Year 6's as possible there to support the Year 3 students. Please make sure that you have returned the note sent home last week by Mrs Meyer if you are able to join us.

Calendar Art - Come in and check out our amazing calendar art pieces. These make great gifts for the grandies! Order forms are due back in with payment as soon as possible.

Shoebox Appeal - Please make sure that your child is working hard to earn the money to purchase their contribution for the Annual Shoebox Appeal. All items including the $2.50 are to be in by the 12th September.

Operation Shoebox Appeal - Digital Copy

Good morning,
Please see below a digital copy of the note that will be sent home with your child today.
Thank you for your support,
23rd August 2016
Dear Parents,
It is the time of year when we ask for the  support of the OLC community to help children in need by providing items that can be packaged in shoeboxes and sent to those in need.
The shoeboxes our school helps to send may be the only gift that the child receives all year and they are very gratefully received!
This year we will have a combined effort between the Year 4, 5 and 6 classrooms to donate items that can be used to package the boxes.
In Year 6 all students will provide 2 items for the shoebox and $2.50 to pay for the postage of the boxes.
Students will need to bring in a hygiene item and a special token item. Some examples are listed below.
PERSONAL HYGIENE Soap and face washer, toothbrush, hairbrush, comb, hair-clips, scrunchies, etc. (No toothpaste).
SOMETHING SPECIAL Carry bag, sunglasses, bangles, necklaces, craft ki…

Week 6 Update

Good afternoon parents,

Welcome to another fantastic week of learning, the students are working very hard on their Year Books, poetry writing, maths concepts of volume, fractions and mass conversions as well as Shrek rehearsals.

Shrek - Please make sure that you have checked with your child if they have been asked to bring in any additional costume or prop items. It would be excellent if all children are in the majority of their costume each Wednesday so that they can be comfortable for the performance. Please see Gen Greaves if you have any questions about what your child may need.

Year Books - The first two pages are due for submission this week (Cover and Contents). Please make sure that your child is working on these for some part of each week to make sure that it is manageable for them.

Shoebox Appeal - This is an annual event here at OLC and we ask all students and families to support this as much as possible. The gifts are very gratefully received by the children in need. 

A Few Reminders...

Good afternoon parents,

Just a few reminders for the coming weeks.

Stationery Items - Can you please take some time over the weekend to ask your child if they need any stationery items. All children need blue and red pens to work with, lead pencils, a ruler, eraser, glue stick and scissors. These items are used daily.

I personally provide items in the 'Borrowing Pot' for the children to use if they have forgotten or lost a required item. Some students are relying on these only and are not bringing or using their own items. Needless to say these items are very quickly used up or lost in the busyness of our day.

I would appreciate your support in checking in with your child if they need anything.

Shrek Costumes - As the performance dates draw closer, we will be rehearsing in the costumes every Wednesday so the children are comfortable.

A large amount of the costuming has been provided but we do ask that some characters provide parts of their own costume or prop. If you can please chec…

Week 5 Update

Good afternoon,
Welcome to Week 5!
It has been a fantastic term so far with so many great things happening.
Absentee Notes - Can I please ask that any absentees that have not been followed up with a written note are given in to me as soon as possible. It is very important that I keep up with these important documents.
Pupil Free Day - Just a reminder that this Friday 19th August will be a Pupil Free Day. All staff will be attending the Capes Conference at St Mary MacKillop. This is a fantastic opportunity for the OLC staff to listen to presentations by staff in our region who are doing amazing things in education. 
We are very proud of Miss Monique Prowse, Mr Adrian Torrese and Mr Sean McSevich who have been asked to present at this year's conference. 
In the busyness of preparing for Confirmation we also had the team from Surf Life Saving WA come out and spend a morning with us reviewing some basic First Aid as well as reminding us of DRSABCD. We were able to practice CPR …

Confirmation Week!

Good afternoon,
I just wanted to take a few moments to share with you some of the amazing experiences that we have had this past week in the lead up to Confirmation.
We enjoyed a wonderful Retreat with Mrs Sue Barton in which the children were asked to liken themselves to wind and fire, complete a crossword on the Pentecost story, challenge their knowledge of Patron Saints and create a church using only cards! This was all aimed at helping us to understand that Jesus and the Church is present always and that we all have a part to play in creating our faith community. We talked about the people that inspire us and what it was about our particular Saint that drew us to them.

We then had a beautiful morning tea!

After morning tea, we shared some private moments reading our letters that our parents and loved ones had given to us. It was a wonderful experience to be a part of as the students were very touched. It was a very emotional experience.
The next day we discussed the retreat and the thin…
