YEAR 6 VISIT SYDNEY & CANBERRA
On Sunday afternoon, we farewelled 19 very enthusiastic and eager Year 6 students as they embarked on their school trip to Sydney and Canberra. From all accounts all are having a blast. I believe a few of the highlights so far have been The Mary MacKillop Centre in Sydney and the visit to the National War Memorial yesterday. To say there is excitement building for the day at Perisher tomorrow would be an understatement!! A BIG thank-you to Mrs Winters for her commitment and dedication to ensuring her students have the best experience!

CONGRATULATIONS ST MARY'S!
You may have already heard the exciting news…….St Mary’s were the overall winning school at last Friday’s Charleville and District Athletics Carnival out of all the other schools competing. Well done St Mary’s! We have a number of students who have now qualified to compete at the regional athletics trials in Chinchilla on 31 August and 1 September.
NAPLAN reports were sent home last Friday with students in Years 3 and 5. The purpose of NAPLAN is to inform government about where to best allocate funding and resources to improve student learning on a national scale. The NAPLAN report indicates a student’s level of achievement, which is reported against a national minimum standard. Our school also uses NAPLAN results as one element of a range of data to inform teaching and learning. NAPLAN tests are a form of assessment at one point in time. Our teachers use a range of formative and summative assessment to inform teaching and promote learning. Please make an appointment to discuss your child’s NAPLAN report with your child’s teacher if desired.
Our Year 3 and 5 students have continued to improve in all areas of NAPLAN. This has been a testament to our whole school reading focus across the school and is something to celebrate! All the hard work being put in by teachers and support staff is continuing to pay off! How lucky our students are to be in classrooms conducive to learning.
“Escape to Everywhere” is this year’s Book Week theme and we love celebrating Book Week at St Mary’s!!! On Tuesday 22nd August we will be having our Book Character Parade in the Cobb and Co Hall at 10:00am with teachers and students coming along dressed as a book character. We would love parents to attend and, if you fancy, feel free to dress up as well. Pictured on the left are some Book Week characters from 2016.
On Wednesday 23rd August you can “Escape to the Library” and enjoy some quiet reading and activities from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. All family members are welcome. We also have two competitions with entries closing 31st August. The first competition requires students to enter a photograph of themselves “escaping” to their favourite place to read, with their favourite book. Students can simply bring in their photo or entries can be emailed to CharlevillLib@twb.catholic.edu.au Students can enter the second competition by illustrating a place they would love to “escape’ to. There were some great ideas discussed in the library this week including Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, the 91 Storey Treehouse and Hogwarts.
We are looking forward to some great entries in our competitions and there are prizes up for grabs in each year level.
PREP ENROLMENTS FOR 2018
We are currently accepting applications for Prep enrolments for the 2018 school year. It is vital that all families considering a placement for their child in Prep for 2018 contact the school office with their details (child’s name and date of birth, parents’ names, address and contact phone number).
Interviews with the Principal will be held early in Term 3. Anticipated enrolment numbers for Prep are an integral part of the prediction for the staffing allocation for the whole of St Mary’s School for 2018. Each Prep child and his/her family (2018) must have participated in the enrolment process:
- Completion and return of the Application for Enrolment
- Meeting with the Principal
- Received an offer of a placement
- Accepted the offer of placement
- Participate in designated transition program for 2018 Prep children (where possible)
Each family’s support of this process is greatly appreciated. If members of our school community are aware of other families seeking enrolment at St Mary’s School, please encourage them to make contact with the school office for an enrolment package.
