We are now in the second half of Term 4 and there is a lot going on at St Bernard’s! With swimming lessons coming up and graduation plans well in place for our Year 6 students, it’s a great time to remember the importance of sleep, healthy food and some exercise for children to help them through these busy times.
St Bernard’s has been a little quieter this week with our Year 5/6 class away at camp in Rottnest. We will have a full update in our next newsletter, but it was lovely to welcome the students back yesterday and to hear such glowing reports of their behaviour – both from their teachers and the people they interacted with on camp. As always, our students wer great ambassadors for our school and did us proud while they were away. Well done, Year 5/6 class!
School camps could not go ahead without the support of staff and parents. My thanks to all our parents who assisted with food for the camp, and a very special thank you to those staff who attended: Mr Myers, Mrs Marinoni, Mrs Atkinson and Ms Taplin. It’s a big ask to be away from home for four days and on duty 24/7 but we are so lucky to have people willing to do that for our students.
Thank you for the lovely, warm welcome back to St Bernard’s after my Long Service Leave in Term 3. I had a wonderful break, but I am very happy to be back and looking forward to Term 4. Mrs Scanlon has also asked me to pass on her thanks for the lovely St Bernard’s welcome while she was Principal in Term 3.
Welcome to the final newsletter of Term 3 and my last newsletter at St Bernard’s School. I would like to start by saying thank you very much for making me feel so welcome over the past ten weeks. St Bernard’s is a very special place and I have really enjoyed my time here. A special thank you to Mrs Marino for entrusting the school to me during her well-deserved long service leave. Mrs Marino will take back the helm at the beginning of Term 4.
School finished for students, Wednesday, 21st September, a day earlier than planned, due to the public holiday on Thursday, to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. School will re-open again on Monday, 10th October with Dance/Sport Week and the Book Fair taking place during the first week back.
Welcome to our second last newsletter of Term 3. The past two weeks have been action-packed for teachers and students alike, and I am aware that the busyness of school life has a ripple effect that impacts parents and carers. Thank you for all that you do, in so many ways, to support our young people on their learning journeys.
We are now officially in the second half of what has so far been a very busy term, with lots still to happen before students, teachers and families get a well-deserved break.
