Catholic Education South Australia



This week, we are in the midst of NAPLAN. Our Year 3 and 5 students completed NAPLAN Writing on Wednesday and today, NAPLAN Reading. Next week, they will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in Mathematics and Language Conventions. We look forward to receiving these ‘snapshots of student’s learning’ to evaluate how we are travelling as a school community, and what areas we might need to focus on as a community of learners.

Mindfulness Meditation

Learning how to use meditation effectively from a young age can have a positive impact on your child and their learning. Meditation helps to keep our mind on the present moment, reduces stress and helps with anxiety. It takes a lot of practice and patience to be able to meditate effectively, but it is a skill we can use our whole lives. For more information, please click here.

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Our Parish, which comprises the churches of St Martin’s and St Monica’s, will be conducting an Alpha Program commencing May this year.

In the spirit of developing the relationship between School and Parish, we are inviting parents to consider being part of this program.

Our Alpha will comprise one evening, 7 to 9 pm over 9 weeks. It is a very fun and relaxed environment where we gather in groups of 10 or so. We enjoy a provided meal, watch a video that explores important life issues and then share our thoughts on the video topic.

The outcome of attending Alpha can be amazing. It promotes friendship and importantly increases our relationship with Jesus.

We are mindful that it is often the Catholic School that nurtures the love of Jesus within our children and feel the inclusion of parents in our Alpha will be fruitful.

For further information, please contact Reg Nye 0417 892 339 or Rebecca at the Parish office 8267 6200 (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday)
