Graduation Reminders

GRADUATION
It is an exciting week as our Graduation Ceremony is on Friday 1st December. Mass will begin promptly at 5.30pm. I ask that your child is there by 5.15pm at the latest so that I can make sure I have everyone.

We will walk down to the church on Friday at approximately 11.45am for another practice. If you can please check in with your child to see if they have any additional information for you!

Those families that will be leaving OLC for the last time will be given a certificate of thanks. Your names will be called up alphabetically, if we can ask that you come up to receive your certificate and remain up the front so that you can be acknowledge as a group.

All family members are welcome to attend the mass. As you are aware, space in the pews is at a premium. I ask that the graduating student and parents are the first priority in the pew. Any additional family members can sit in the remaining pews at the back of the church.

Dress is smart casual on the dressier side. I have asked…

Milo T20 Blast - We had a fantastic day on Friday at GMAS, the kids all really enjoyed getting the opportunity to experience T20 cricket and it was wonderful to see the students reconnecting with old friends and making some new ones.

Good afternoon,

Welcome to a beautiful Week 5...it is staring to feel a lot more summery with this warmer weather...hats at school are a must!


REMINDERS - WEEK 5
Lions Peace Poster Winner - Congratulations to Cooper Smith on being chosen as this year's winner. It was a very close competition and I have to say that this year's entries were of the highest standard I have seen. Well done to Cooper and all of the students who completed their entries!

Thank you to Ms Kaye McCormick and the Lions Club of Dunsborough for their support and generous donation!





Stationery Items - A large number of students are down to the last of their glue, red and blue pens...I know that it is nearing the end of term and it can feel like a waste to top up supplies but it is difficult for the students to complete given tasks in a timely fashion when they are waiting to borrow items from others. It is also unfair on those students who are constantly lending their belongings.

If I can ask that you take a moment…
