Week 3 Update

Good morning parents,

I hope that you weren't blown away over the weekend, I was lucky enough to get completely saturated twice on Saturday!

Just a few reminders for this very special and important week.

Parent Letters - these are due today. Please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child's name. If you have not already given it to me, can you please make sure that it is handed in tomorrow morning at the absolute latest.

Confirmation Retreat - please make sure that your name is down next a plate. All food can be taken to the canteen on Wednesday morning. There are still a few empty spaces left...if you can't make it into class please email Alisa or myself and we can make a note for you.

This a free dress day - please make sure your child is warm and comfortable.

Confirmation Ceremony Rehearsals - these will be on Wednesday afternoon at 1.30pm, we will be attending Reconciliation on Thursday morning at 10.30am and then another rehearsal on Friday afternoon at 1.30pm.


Confirmation Reminders

Good morning,

Just a couple of reminders for the candidates and prayer buddies as we continue our preparations to celebrate the Sacrament on Saturday 5th August.

Bishop's Visit - On Monday 31st August Bishop Gerard Holohan will be coming to meet all of the students and spend some time discussing their preparations. We have been learning a lot about the Fruits and Gifts given by the Holy Spirit, we have looked at the Nine Beatitudes and discussed how they can show these within their own lives as well as writing a procedure on the Rite of Confirmation.

During his visit he will be asking all the students (not just candidates) a wide variety of questions about the Sacrament and their preparations. If you can spend some time reviewing these concepts over the coming days with your child that would be great! This will help them to feel confident with any questions!

Sashes - Those students that are having their sash done by Hip Pocket will receive it back on Thursday 3rd August.

Re: Friendology 101 Shared Morning Tea (Friday 11th August)
To celebrate the end of our Friendology 101 sessions we would like to have a shared morning tea on Friday 11th August beginning at 10am.
If all girls could please bring in a small plate of food to share that would be wonderful! Please be mindful that refrigeration space is limited.
We will be sharing our Sole Projects with each other and will enjoy the afternoon reflecting on the process and skills that we have learnt over the last term and a half and enjoying each other’s company. In our sessions we have looked at: 1. How to Get Real – focuses on the importance of being true to who you are, embracing your unique self, and dispelling myths around gender stereotypes. 2.How to Make Friends – focuses on the art of friendship-making starting with how to introduce yourself, find something in common, and have a conversation. Students also learn what’s normal in a friendship through the 4 Fri…
