Our 2023 Cross Country Carnival at Icely Park was fantastic - and our first from ES1- Stg 3! Congratulations to all of the children who participated enthusiastically and then cheered on our their peers. Thank you to all of our teachers for their preparation before the day and team work on the day. Another special thank you …. to our AMAZING volunteers. They cheered, timed and guided the students along, with some of our helpers sitting in very sunny spots and still they continued to encourage every child who ran their way - the ringing bells were our favourite. We could not have done it without you!!! We certainly are blessed at St Monica’s!

Did you know today was our first ‘Wherever Wednesday’? Our students enjoyed choosing their own play area out in the gorgeous sunshine or staying cool playing board games or quiet time in the library. It was heartwarming to see students across the school taking turns, including friends from other stages and our older students umpiring and coordinating team games. St Monica’s certainly is a wonderful place to be!

Early Stage 1 have been learning all about the structure of number. We have been organising and representing a collection of objects so we know how many there are without counting. We have learned that there are many different ways to show the number 10, and have been reflecting on why some ways are quicker than others! This helps us understand how numbers work.

St Gregory’s Restoration Appeal: Next year the current Church at St Greg’s will be a hundred & twenty years old. It is in need of a facelift. These mainly consist of repairs to front & back walls, plastering & repainting the whole Church. The roof also needs attention. The building is listed by the local Heritage Council & we are applying for a Grant to assist in the cost of the renovations. These works will necessitate the closing of the Church for 2-3 weeks. We have to find $26000.00 to fund the project cost & so we are seeking your support for this project. Thank you for your time and God bless.
