Socktober Socktober is an initiative of Catholic Mission, it is one way our school fundraises and engages in raising awareness during World Mission Month in October. The ‘sock it to something’ concept is an Australian expression that means to strike out at. We wanted to invite the rest of the school and school community to help us strike out at social issues, such as poverty, child labour, homelessness and lack of education. The Mini Vinnies spent the week hosting different activities and games that all helped to raise awareness and money. Activities included Sock Races, Sock Hunts, "How many socks you can fit on in one minute?", Toss the Sock and Stinky Dip. There was also a very successful Pet Sock Stall! The Mini Vinnies raised in excess of $330! What a brilliant effort from our kids!    
Book Week 2017
Book week is one of the favourite celebrations for the year. Children and Teachers a like love the opportunity to indulge in more reading for the week. As usual, the costumes for the Book Week Parade, inspired by children's favourite books or characters were very inventive and creative. The talent we have at this school is amazing!
Father’s Day Brekky!
Last Friday we celebrated the Fathers in our community with a Father’s Day breakfast. It was great  to see over 50 of our Dads come and have a bacon and egg roll with their children. A very Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads in our community. I hope you all had a special day and got thoroughly spoilt by your children!
