On Wednesday 15th March, we opened our doors to new families during Galilee Open Day. It was a huge success with over 90 new families attending the day. Many new families commented positively on our wonderful school and our amazing students.
Thank you to everyone who made Galilee Open Day a success - the students, the teachers, Brighid Fahy and Holly Evans our School Community Leaders and our wonderful parents who prepared a fabulous morning tea.
Over the next week we have much to look forward to. This Friday is Galilee Athletics Day, with all of our students representing their House Team in different Athletics events. Due to the number of children/staff/volunteers and events taking place on the track and field, we ask that you cheer from the sidelines. Thank you Shaun Tobin for organising the day.
Next Tuesday and Wednesday evening many of our Year 3 students will be participating in the Sacrament of First Reconciliation. Reconciliation is a wonderful Sacrament about mercy and healing broken relationships with God and with others. Please keep our Year 3 students in your prayers as they prepare for this special Sacrament.
Our Year 4 students are off to camp on Wednesday and will return on Friday. They will participate in a camp at Angelsea which sounds like a wonderful camp. While they are away, students will have the opprotunity to challenge themselves in a variety of different activities. We look forward to sharing the news from camp in our newsletter next week.
Thank you for another wonderful week at Galilee.
