Dear Families,

Celebrating St Andrew’s Feast Day - Saturday 30th November

We look forward to celebrating the Feast Day of St Andrew throughout the coming days.   St Andrew’s Feast Day is celebrated annually on the 30th November.   We will gather tomorrow morning at 11.45am to celebrate our whole school St Andrew’s mass.  We invite all families to join with us.  
Classes tomorrow, before and after mass, will work through a variety of activities focusing on:
 Who is St Andrew? What can we learn from him? What are his character strengths?
Through the activities as planned for tomorrow we aim for our children to have a clearer understanding of who we are as a Parish, and as a school,  taking the time to celebrate our unique identity.   
Our identity as a community will be a major focus for our school at the beginning of the 2020 year.   We will commence the school year developing a new school vision along with developing each child’s awareness of our identity as a parish, as a school, as a class and looking further into our shared values, expectations and the character traits that we celebrate and promote .
We will provide parents with a full insight into our beginning of year inquiry at the beginning of the New Year.  
 

Parish Celebration  - Saturday 6pm Mass and Dinner 7pm

We invite families to join the Parish to celebrate the St Andrew’s Feast Day mass on Saturday 30th at 6.00pm.  Archbishop Peter Comensoli will be the main celebrant of our Feast Day mass.  


Parents & Friends Icy Pole Gift for St Andrew’s Feast Day - Tomorrow 

The Parents and Friends Committee will be generously donating ‘Lifesaver Icy Poles’ to all children.  We ask that parents please advise your child’s class teacher if you do not want your child to have an icy pole.

Solids, Liquids,Gases

In 3/4TK we have had an exciting time doing many experiments this term. We did experiments using chocolate, icy poles, food colouring and more. My classmates and I have learnt about the molecules of a solid, liquid and gas.  A solid´s particles are tucked in together and vibrate. A liquid's molecules have small distance apart and move around. They roll over each other.  Gas particles fill anything its in like a room and bounce wherever it touches.n We wondered what type of matter jelly was, as it is not totally rigid like a solid or pours like a liquid. .What is a solid and a liquid together called ? Well one of my classmates found the answer and jelly is called  “Colloid Gel.”

End of Year In the Library

Dear Parents and Guardians,
It’s that time of the year again when we need to start thinking about returning all our Library books before Christmas is upon us.

The last week of borrowing this year will be the week ending Friday 15th November.
It would be greatly appreciated if you would encourage and remind your children to place their library books in their library bag over the coming weeks, especially all Year 6 students and those not returning to St. Andrews next year.

After this time, I will be printing overdue notices and giving them to each child.  It would be greatly appreciated if all overdue books are returned as soon as possible and all lost books paid for.

Thank you and Happy Reading

School Reflections 

By Year 6 students

In my 2 years at St.Andrews school I have learnt many things. St.Andrews school makes me happy because I have learnt English and many other things. I really enjoy the teachers that I have had here because they help me to learn many things that I didn’t know before and also, all of my teachers are really responsible and nice to me! My favourite moment that I have enjoyed at St. Andrews was when I thought that I would never learn English (because I am from Belarus) and I did!! I'm really happy that my family and teachers and all of the staff support me! This school has made me responsible and respectful. Also, I really like and would recommend this school because everyone is really friendly to you and nice (the teachers too)! Another favourite thing at St.Andrews school that I have done was going to camp with all of the grade 6s. It was really fun! I’m really happy that I went to this school and I’m glad that I have really good teachers and friends! I will remember all of the moments at this school!  Ilona

 

 

My final year of primary school has gone extremely well so far! This school is special because all of my friends that I’ve had since prep are still here each day and we have been enjoying ourselves in the last few days we have left together. My favorite thing about St. Andrews is that every year you move up a grade, you meet new people and create a ton of different fun memories with them. Eg: This year, I have made a new friend and her name is Catherine Nguyen. She is a great person and I hope that we still continue to be friends because she has been a great person to me.  Polliana

 

I have been going to St. Andrews since Prep or as they now call it, Foundation. I have made some good friends over the years who I still play with to this day. I know lots of people and I would like to say that this school was a very good school. The staff are very friendly and everyone is kind to one another. If I were to say what makes this school special it would be that we have lots of different cultures at this school and we all accept each other. In my years at St. Andrews I have done pretty fun things such as special incursions and excursions, but the thing I most enjoyed was camp in years 4 and 6. Camp was a great way to interact with people we don’t usually talk to and it gave us the opportunities to challenge ourselves. For instance, at year 6 camp there was this activity called the giant swing. We had to be dropped from a really high distance, then swing back and forth like a swing. We could choose to go on it and I went to the top and thought about challenging myself. When I went up it was so high that I immediately regretted going on it. I was nervous and thrilled at the same time. All the staff are supportive of our skills and challenge us to strive to do our best. Overall, St. Andrews is a great school where everyone is accepted. I am glad that I went to this school.     Rowan

 

Seven years at this school, and I am still not ready to leave. As I move to the next chapter of my life, I will never forget the memories and friends I have made here. At St. Andrews, I feel welcomed, and the community in so friendly, it is too hard to leave. This school has given me so many opportunities to express and enrich my learning, and I am so grateful for that. As school captain, I am thankful for the things I was able to take part of, these things will stay close to my heart. Camp was definitely a highlight, getting time to know my peers and having a lot of fun at the activities such as the giant swing and the flying fox. Throughout this journey, my teachers and parents have stuck by me, and I want to thank them for that. Without them, I would be nowhere near where I am today. Finally, I want to thank everyone that has been there for me, and I wish them all the best for the future.      Jaida

Leaving St. Andrew’s will be very hard for me because of all of my friends, and memories that I've made here. There are many reasons for why St. Andrew’s is so special including the equality, friendly staff and students, big play areas and great opportunities, etc. St. Andrew’s has prepared me for the future by challenging me to do what I thought I couldn’t do, and by helping me to achieve my B.E.S.T. St. Andrew’s has given me a different perspective on life and has built me up to who I am today. My favourite memory in Primary School was my first day here at St. Andrew’s because as soon as I walked through the gates, I saw so many smiling and nervous faces. One of them mine. It has been a whole rollercoaster at St. Andrew’s but I don’t regret any of it :) I will definitely miss Primary school, but I am sure I will enjoy high school as well. Thank you to all the staff who have taught, and helped me through this (technically) short journey, also thank you to my parents and friends who have always been there for me no matter what!

Bye St.Andrews!!!

 

Atika 

Hello my name is Atika  and I am the vice-captain of St Andrew’s for 2019. Being the vice-captain has made me have a different perspective of St Andrew’s. I can really see the hard work that is put into the St Andrew’s assemblies, national days and learning. Our school is very special to me because of the rules to do with wellbeing I really like how the teachers are so understanding and willing to help. St Andrew’s has truly prepared me for the future, by learning ways to tackle tasks and challenges that come our way.
My FAVOURITE memory from St Andrew’s by far has been my 100 days of school. I had a blast with all my friends and I was so willing to continue my primary years at St Andrew’s.
Now looking back on my seven years here I would like to thank all the teachers that have helped me become the person I am today. You have been so funny and caring. Every day when I walk into school I always see Mr Mills smiling through the window waving at all the students that come in. I am going to miss St Andrew’s so much next year. Thanks to all the teachers and staff at St Andrew’s. 

 

Juline

In the beginning, I was very excited to start primary school. I’m pretty sure everyone called school ‘big school’ when they were in prep or foundation. Anyways, I was always a small curious child (and I still am) with an imaginative mind to seek the world, with a buzzing energy inside (I don’t know what happened there). I was always excited to explore everything and anything (ooh look it’s an ordinary chair that nobody cares about, but I’m going to look at it curiously anyway), and even though I still find average things so amazing, I am still your typical 11 year old. 

Moving on, let’s talk about St. Andrew’s. I absolutely love my school, and I’m not just saying that to be that all rainbows and unicorns. I cherish every single memory that I have made here, every laugh, every tear, even every fall that I have made all mean so much to me. I think that what makes St. Andrew’'s so special is the connection between us all. When you step in St. Andrews, you can instantly hear friends laughing their heads off, being total lunatics. We are all so close to one another, and we all have our little and big groups that we all fit in and belong in. I’ve thought long and hard about one memory that I admire the most, but I’ve had so many interesting and different memories that I can’t just pick one. 

Last but not least, thank you to all my friends that have supported me from the start to the end. You all have been so supportive and kind, ILY all sm!!! I will miss everyone so dearly at St. Andrew’s, including teachers and friends. Thank you all so much once again. I wish you all the very best. 
 

Letters of Appreciation to our P & F

Thank you from Foundation

Dear Parents and Friends,
Thank you for all your support this year. The Foundation students would like to acknowledge in particular your hard work in organising the movie night and disco – some definite highlights of our first year at St Andrew’s.

It is a wonderful community spirit that is created in our school thanks to your efforts and involvement. 
Thank you!
From Foundation 2019

 

Thank you from Year 1 & 2

It is a proven fact, that when parents are involved in the life of the school, the school flourishes, and that is exactly what has continued here at St. Andrew’s.  
All the 1 /2 teachers and students sincerely thank the parents for their support of school based activities, programs, by their presence at events, classroom support and all the behind the scene work that is involved in organsing many school functions for the students.
Thank you very much for another year of tremendous support and contribution.  Now it is your time to take a break from the morning and afternoon school routines. 
Wishing you all Merry Christmas, and a Happy and safe New year.

Thank you from Year 3/4LC

Dear Parents and Friends 
On behalf of everyone at St. Andrews I would like to say thank you for giving up your time for us, like when you helped out at the disco, or when you got new games for us because some of the games were old. You would probably  rather be at home with your family or watching TV but you come to school to help us be the best school we can be, and for that I cannot thank you enough . To be honest with you, if I could I would bring you up to the front of the school at Assembly on Friday and make the whole school clap for you, because you really deserve it. I really hope we see you again next time.     From Charlotte 
 

Dear Parents and Friends,
Thank you for helping us around the classrooms and for planning the sausage sizzles. Thank you for the icy poles that we will get  to eat on St. Andrews Day. Thank you for buying us the games that we  use for our classrooms last year and for the Mother and the Father’s Day stalls and also for Father's Day and Mother's Day breakfast.  I loved the croissants. Thank you for organising the discos and for the Easter Raffle.
Thank you for providing us with all of these amazing things.

From Rio 

 

Dear Parents and Friends,
Thank you for giving up some of your family time to be with St Andrews school students. Thanks for coming on every event we needed you to help out with, you have helped our school a lot. We students and teachers are very happy that you have lead our school and thanks for helping us at the disco, sausage sizzle, St Andrews day icy-poles, purchasing games, helping out in the classroom and helping to pay for some of the blue shades clothes, Father’s and Mother’s Day stall, brekky(breakfast) and the Easter raffle. Thanks for helping us with all of those events at school and we hope to see you again if we ever have another event at St Andrews primary school. Thanks.
From Tanisha

Parents and Friends

Dear Families,

A tremendous thank you to Laura La Rosa for organising two key activities on behalf of Parents and Friends and the school.

Last Saturday we booked a photo fundraising event with Vision Portraits.  We had a good mix of bookings, and for each scheduled session, a  $15 donation goes towards the school.

In the last few months, Laura has also coordinated the fitting of the 2020 Year 6 hoodies.  Thank you again, Laura, for your generous time and commitment to our students and families.  

In the last four weeks, the P&F has provided four morning teas to our new 2020 Foundation families as part of their Transition Program. It was lovely to mingle with these families.  We wish you the best and hope to see you all again at the start of the year in 2020.  We will be hosting morning teas on 30th Thursday and Friday 31st  January 2020, for new and returning families.

All the best,
Leanne Ngo
St. Andrew's P & F President
