Dear Parents and Friends,
Students are enjoying a great term so far with fantastic learning happening across all levels. The students are very settled and are really focused on their learning. We have been busy with Socktober, bike education, change and transformation, cyber safety, local community walks and interschool sports.
Launch of our new school uniform
Thank you to our parents and friends who supported at our recent uniform launch. It was great to see so many of our current and new families at this important event. Special thanks to our wonderful models who did a fantastic job wearing our new uniforms so proudly on the catwalk.
World Teachers' Day
This day is a great opportunity for everyone to recognise and appreciate teachers and the important role they play in shaping the next generation of young minds. I would like to thank our teachers for all the work they do in educating, nurturing, protecting, supporting and growing the mind and spirit of our children at St Joseph the Worker. Last week we had a special morning tea to recognise, celebrate and thank our staff.
Prep Information 2020
We welcomed all of our 2020 Prep families at orientation last Friday, 25th October. Students worked with teachers in the classroom and parents met with leaders and were provided with information to support the smooth transition to their child’s first year of school. We welcome our new Preps and their parents back to our school on Friday, 15th November.
Thank you for ensuring that your child is wearing the correct Summer school uniform. Students are required to wear their school hats in Term 4 while at school, and are strongly encouraged to wear them when walking to and from school. Students without a school hat will be required to sit in a shaded area during breaks. With the UV index much higher this term, parents are encouraged to ensure that their child also wears sunscreen. A friendly reminder that students are only permitted to wear their sneakers on PE or Interschool Sports Days.
Term Four School Closure Days
Please note that there will be no school for students on the following days:
- Monday November 4th and Tuesday November 5th due to the Melbourne Cup Public holiday.
Our school year finishes on Wednesday, 18th December at 1:15 p.m.
Thank you to the majority of families who have finalised school fees. It is an enrolment requirement that fees be paid in full by the end of October. If you still have not finalised your account, I ask that you do so early next week. Any outstanding accounts may be forwarded to our fees collection agency and will incur additional charges. Please contact me if you wish to discuss your account.
